FS: MINI TORII W/ EXPENSIVE NOS TUBES BIG UPGRADE
06/25/18 at 15:15:15
 
This is the MINITORII-II - Introduced in Oct 2012

Asking $1,700.00 or best offer (with extra tubes for back up tube rolling including 6V6GT Mazda France made greyglass, military boxes, 1957 with approx 500 hours) and Amperex 12AU7 (with approx 500 hours).

Black figured base (other bases available from Decware, an easy swap)

Recent New Tubes:

Pope 6V6GT Paid $89.00 Each From Upscale Audio (a clear best choice after a lot of tube rolling),

More Information:

https://www.upscaleaudio.com/collections/vacuum-tubes/products/pope-6v6gt

From Upscale Audio Website:

Pope 6V6GT - have the mighty RCA and Visseaux been de-throned? Yes. The Pope 6V6GT was made in a Philips Holland factory near the border of Belgium. Click here. for more info on the Philips factories. I have driven by the old building on my way to the Charleroi airport. This tube was made from 1957 to about 1960.

The Pope 6V6GT is made the same way as the old Amperex Holland EL34... rugged. I have run them at 450v DC on the plates and screens, and drawn 70ma from them. They don't budge. I don't want to tell you it's OK to do this in your amp...it is way beyond the published limit of the tube, but I was shocked to say the least.

The sound is what Philips Holland tubes are famous for: Great life in the mids, wonderful extension, and humanity!





Tungsgram 12AU7, paid $75.00 each from Upscale Audio (another clear best choice after a lot of tube rolling). A Very Special Tube From Upscale Audio, Platinum Grade (Highest Grade).

From Upscale Audio's Website:

Tungsram 12AU7/ECC82 - This is a rather unusual tube, made in Hungary. For a while we thought we were out of them, which bummed out a few folks. It turns out after we did
some housekeeping in the tube room, we have some more available! Great low noise tube with a more neutral and smooth presentation, and great bass.
