  1. These are in excellent condition and are working perfectly and sound great! One speaker is a little faded and its label has come off leaving just its ghost. They are the same as Electro-Voice EVM 12L. I believe that during the Altec collapse, EV and Altec had the same owners. The EVM 12L is still in production as the Classic and Zakk Wylde and is renowned for being virtually indestructible. Joe Bonamassa swears by them as did SRV and many others.
  2. Western Electric 10GA Tinned Copper with Cotton covering. Twisted Pair Speaker Cable The price is for a stereo pair of 3 metres. This is the wire Duelund copied "A wire originally born of the desire to improve upon legendary studio vintage cabling." The legend is this WE cable! This is great speaker wire especially for bass and mids. It is twice as thick and has 4 times the cross sectional area of the famous WE16GA as featured on Jeff's Place https://jeffsplace.positive-feedback.com/the-vintage-beat-western-electric-we16ga-speaker-cable/ NB. Other lengths available - to be listed.
  3. These are 1961 tubes NOS NIB. I think a little better than the 1979s I had before. A bit richer in tone and depth. I have the original boxes as well. Western Electric 420a >> 12AX7 or 12AT7 Tubes with Adaptors NOS NIB Price is per pair. For sale are these great sounding Western Electric 420a /JW 5755 NOS tubes which when coupled with an adaptor (included) function as a superior 12AX7 or a 12AT7. NB. The height of the tube plus adaptor, to its base, is about 66mm. This is a little taller than the usual 12ax7. They are much better in many ways than other 12AX7s I have tried, including: Mullard, Telefunken, Amperex and any Chinese tubes (Psvane etc). The most obvious improvements came in bass drive and resolution. Greater timbral information and texture is evident throughout the mids and bass. Glorious textural information not experienced with any of the tubes mentioned above. Dynamics are scary. Clarity is excellent. Designed for very low microphonics… The WE 420a "features special cathode springs which reduce microphonic response. This characteristic is controlled by a "microphonic stability" test for balance in which the tube is tapped at shock levels of 400 - 600G." Very fine wires (springs) just above the top mica can be seen in pics. The specs are a little different from a 12AX7 which has an amplification factor of 100, 12AT7 is 60, and the Western Electric 420a is 70. I have tried the Raytheon 5755 and GE equivalents and as expected the Western Electric sounds better and is reliable (the Raytheon is not). WE is the real deal!
  4. I'd like to buy these please. PM sent.
  5. Only the single tube. Works perfectly. The RCA Red Base 6SN7 is considered to be the best of its kind.
  6. These RCA Red Base tubes are considered to be the best 6SN7 there is. I bought them NOS about a year ago and only used lightly. They have been tested to be perfectly matched and balanced. See photo of tops.
  7. The Telefunken ECC83/12AX7 Smooth Plates are legendary tubes! Telefunken diamond clearly shown, Only plugged in to make sure all is OK. Here is an excerpt about them from Medialux: "The Telefunken ECC83 was used in countless legendary amplifiers of the audio or recording industry, it helped a lot of companies to gain their specific sound, which we adore even today. t has one of the most complex midband abilities of all ECC83/12AX7 tubes. You will get a highly neutral ultra complex tube sound, a sound, which needs your attention – it is not a sound were you can read a book, while listening to some music. A Telefunken ECC83 sucks you into the music – and it challenges you. Together with its neutral full range sound, you will also get an outstanding quality in reproducing recorded space – the smooth Plates Telefunken will render the slightest amount of reflections once captured by the microphones. Music reproduced with a Telefunken ECC83 smooth plates can be so frightening real, that you nearly can touch the instrument. The ability to show the whole spectrum nearly uncoloured and especially the complex midband, makes this concert a very intense experience! The smooth plates Telefunken ECC83 is one of the biggest legends in the ECC83 class of tubes and it´s status there is completely justified!"
  8. Here is a FR and distortion from one speaker.
  9. I have been using it as a mid-bass unit with a horn on top and intended to use 2245 in bass support. I am running out of space.

The 15 inch cone area provides considerably more output than smaller cones without the slightest sacrifice in midrange and high frequency reproduction. K130 - the only choice when loudspeaker size is not restricted and tremendous musical sound levels are required." "In the early sixties, performers using amplified musical instruments had very special ideas about the kind of sound they wanted - sound they couldn’t get from standard loudspeakers.

  10. Very good condition with original everything. I just listed them on SNA for $595. Interested?
