Amperex Bugle Boy 6DJ8/ECC88

We've got a nice stock of these, absolutely beautiful. Made in the Philips Holland factory, and have that same family sound: Liquid smooth, but slightly up-front mids, nice airy top end. Holographic 3D soundstage. 

Our remaining stock of this tube are only driver grade. This means they will not be suitable for use in a preamp, phonostage, the input stage of a power amp, or any circuit that is sensitive to noise or microphonics. If you are looking for a tube that has a similar sonic character to this one that will be suitable for use in a preamp, check out the Pope PCC88/7DJ8.

Driver grade - Lowest noise but not the lowest in microphony. Triode balance will be similar to Gold grade. This grade is only suitable for use in the driver stage of an amplifier, or the output/buffer stage of a DAC or CD Player.

If you have a preamp or phonostage, you need at least Gold grade.
