This 1972 Amperex PQ 7308 tube is a premium quality 6DJ8 / ECC88.
It has the following characteristics:
  • creases on the top of the bottle

  • gray risers
  • round shield with two raised rectangular sections on opposite sides
  • large O getter with wide support

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.

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 its original box with test results for current draw (mA) and transconductance (Gm) for each triode section. Photo is of the actual tube. Matched pairs, when available, are listed as Item 943.
