6AS7G produced by Chatham Electronics/ Tung-Sol in the USA; a matched pair !

Note: my tubes are often not the cheapest.    But is hard to find better tubes !

This is a beautifull matched pair of NOS/NIB 6AS7G tubes.They are made by Chatham Electronics; a later subsidiary of Tung-Sol. The tubes are made for the Joined Army and Navy in 1954 and 1955. In the box they are carefully wrapped in a cardboard envelope. 

This version of the 6AS7G is highly regarded for use in OTL amplifiers (e.g. Atma-Sphere) and headphone amplifiers.  I refer to the threads on the web for more information. 

I had the opportunity to obtain a number of these tubes and this enabled me to select a nice matched pair. The tubes have two bottom D-getters with a beautiful flash.The tubes are thoroughly tested. Both tubes have excellent test values that match the factory specification well and balanced systems.

Test equipment & method 

Test equipment:  AVO Mk IV, Utracer 3+, Philips 1532, RFT stabilised power supply, 2x Korad KA3005P programmable power supply and 2x Keithley 2700 and AVO Valve Data Manual 23rd edition 1981. Gas and shorts were tested with: AVO Mk IV. Ia & transconductance are measured conform the official factory specification (see picture) with a cathode resistor. Precision the test voltage ± 1%. Measurement after 10 minutes stabilization.
