This 1962 Amperex 6DJ8 / ECC88 dual triode preamp tube was made in Holland (Heerlen factory code) and has the famous Bugle Boy logo.
It has the following characteristics:
  • creases on the top of the bottle
  • the Heerlen factory code etched along the bottom of the glass
  • gray risers
  • round shield with two raised rectangular sections on opposite sides
  • large halo getter with wide support post
  • white Amperex Bugle Boy label with "Made in Holland"

This tube tests as new with balanced sections. It has been screened for gas, heater-cathode leakage, shorts, and excessive noise and microphonics on each triode section. It was tested at typical operating voltages on a laboratory grade Amplitrex AT1000 (manual setting, fixed bias mode). Learn more about our testing process here. See product options for current availability.

Noise and microphonics

This tube tests as “phono grade”—the quietest range for noise and microphonics—on our custom noise testing equipment. It is an excellent choice for
phono stages, microphone preamps, DA converters, and other sensitive applications.

This tube is sold individually. It ships in a new white box with test results for current draw (mA) and transconductance (Gm) for each triode section. Photo is of a sample from the lot. Matched pairs, when available, are listed as Item 800.
