Hi Lonely Raven--

The tube is a United Electronics Corp. 596 tube. A direct replacement for a 5U4. The description says that it's a high-altitude version of the 1641. http://www.radiomuseum.org/tubes/tube_596.html

Currently it is very hard to find and expensive. It was about $18 year ago and now it commands well over $150 a tube. I really like the sound but I also think some Tung-Sol and RCA 5U4GB tubes sound equally as impressive. [img][/img]

Thank you for that, it certainly looks cool. I remember seeing them on eBay at reasonable prices, but don't see any now.
