Description

The 1964-66 Amperex Bugle Boy 6DJ8 / ECC88 tubes in this precisely matched pair were made in Holland.
 
Both tubes have the following characteristics:
  • creases on the tops of the bottles
  • halo getters with wide support posts
  • gray risers
  • round shield with two raised rectangular sections on opposite sides
  • white Amperex Bugle Boy label (may be partial)
  • the Heerlen, Holland factory codes and matching date codes etched in the glass
Testing

Both tubes test as new. They are tested at typical operating voltages on a laboratory grade Amplitrex AT1000 (manual setting, fixed bias mode).
They are also screened for gas, heater-cathode leakage, shorts, and excessive noise and microphonics. Learn more about our testing process here

Noise and microphonics

These tubes test as “phono grade”—the quietest range for noise and microphonics—on our custom noise testing equipment. They are an excellent choice for
phono stages, microphone preamps, DA converters, and other sensitive applications.
 
Pricing

These tubes are sold as a precision matched pair. Tubes ship in new white boxes with test results for current draw (mA) and transconductance (Gm) for each triode section. Photo is of the actual tubes. Singles, when available, are listed as Item 82.
