6AX7 replacement?

Post by radioeng2 » Sat Nov 21, 2015 3:47 pm

Has anybody tried the Russian fix (6N2P-EV) for the 6AX7's in the Carverfest amp? Very reasonable price....a pair for $9.46 delivered.

The only Russian tubes I've ever used were their version of the EL84's. I LOVED them. But I've never used any version of the 6ax7.

Two years ago,,Harry Al, and myself did some tube rolling in the CF amp,,,cryoed Mullard new production,,which are Russian made IIRC,,,Some Other Russian made and some Chinese,,, the Mullards were best,,and the Chinese came a close second,,,just our impression.
