Hi, I posted the following under the other 6922 tube poll but then I found this one. It seems more active. There are a few more choices.
"Admittedly, nearly all of the current brands, that are not mentioned by Adama, are actually manufactured by the same companies as mentioned. For example the New Senor corp manufacturers tubes for ElectroHarmonix, Sovtek, Svetlana and makes the Mullard re-issues and Tungsol. Some of these are made at the same plants some are made at alternate plants with different tooling. For example the Sovtek and the Mullard re-issue do not use the same tooling and are not made at the same plant. In other cases, Gold Lion/Pm Tubes, Groove tubes, Ruby Tubes, Northern Electric, Psvane .... these are all tubes manufactured by the mentioned firms or by the Chinese firms but they all pass a bunch for tests to select for noise, microphonics, gain, etc. So, often, the consistence is better than just buying straight standard issue from the manufacturer. What i am trying to say is that there are many options in the 6DJ8/6922/7308 family to choose from if we want a drop for one of them."
I see now that some of the brands I mentioned may not make 6DJ8/6922/7308 family. My mistake. I forgot that the selection for modern 6922 is limited compared to the 12AX7 family. Regardless, we should be able to find a few more new production tubes to choose from. I'd like to see the Tungsol up there and the Mullard. Maybe some of the Chinese Shuguang Treasure or Psvane tubes.
