  1. Not sure these are Ulms, but what you say is really interesting. I’ve had a swag of Teles (my setup at the moment likes Mullards/Amperex/Brimar better) and have noticed differences between them, even with the same plate type and roughly the same period, but I hadn’t compared plant to plant. I’ll have to dig some out and do some critical listening.
  2. Pretty sure both the Ulm and Berlin factories were in West Germany. These do say “made in Western Germany”. They have the diamond, so definitely one of those 2 plants.
  3. No way to tell for sure, but I’d bet Berlin, as I believe that plant did most of the made for export tubes. I understand tubes made for export did not include a U or B or any way to definitely tell the plant they were made; just a 2 letter date code. That’s what these have.
  4. Hi grorr The chalky zc date code on each of them puts them at February 1961 and indicates they were made for export.
  5. I’ve got a pair of bog standard non medical Telefunken 12ax7s elsewhere on SN, as well as those Amperexes, if you’re keen.

  10. Item: Matched pair NOS Amperex Hammond 12ax7 tubes Location: PErth - will post within Aus. Price: $325 Item Condition: NOS - As new Reason for selling: surplus Payment Method: EFT by mobile Extra Info: Made for Hammond organs by Amperex in the Herleen plant in Holland in 1967. These were NOS when I bought them. Tested 72/73 and 73/73 by original owner on a Hickock (min good is 50/50) . I bought four and currently use two of them in my phono stage. I’ve only plugged these two in to test for this sale and confirm they play beautifully in my setup. I was keeping them as spares, but better they go to a good home and get used. They have a big, luscious, sweet and slightly warm sound IMO. I absolutely love them. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.

I had them as spares but they’re using up too much space in the house. They sound clear, super detailed and quiet in my phono stage. Heaps of air and tons of seperation IMO.

  14. That’s really helpful. Thanks. I had auditioned VDH The Second, next to the likes of a Chord Epic, Analysis Plus, Mike Lenehan’s FoilFlex and a few others. I liked the VDH in some ways, especially it’s accuracy and even-handedness, but felt it was just a bit flat and un-involving overall. I am hoping something higher up the 3T chain has a bit more air, finesse and soundstage (a la FoilFlex), along with the neutrality and tight accurate bass of the VDH. Sounds like the Hill could be worth a listen.
  15. Has anyone compared The Rock, The Hill and/or The Mountain interconnects by Van den Hul? I would be interested to hear your descriptions of the sonic differences between them.
