Russian 6H8C/6SN7 - 1960's vintage. These are sooooo cool. I got these from a guy who actually found them in a warehouse in Brazil... in the jungle. When I opened the musty boxes, I felt so much like Nikita Kruschev I almost started pounding my shoe on the table! Low noise and microphonics, great air and detail, excellent bass. Not as thin sounding as some of the later production 6H8C tubes you see being used as stock tubes in some gear.

Platinum grade - The best of the best. Lowest noise and microphony with the tightest triode balance we have available. This is typically 10% or tighter, but may be higher depending on available stock.

Gold grade - Low noise and microphonics with a triode balance typically between 15% and 20%, but may be higher depending on available stock.

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.
