Good quality 807 adaptors?
08/19/18 at 15:55:15
 
I have bought a couple of sets of the 807 to EL34 adaptors off various sellers on eBay and the quality really doesn't seem to be too good. Has anyone found a better quality version or made their own and want to share their experience? I have one I have to resolder the wire to the anode cap today and would think that someone somewhere offers up a better version. Just curious. Happy listening, Chris.

Ok, no comments. I can totally understand that. So, I will design one, build a pair at the machine shop I work at (state of the art 5 Axis) and show them to you. I love the 807's in our Rachael and am just bugged by the low end stuff I have to use to enjoy them. Stay tuned kiddies....happy listening, Chris.

I've no experience with the 807 tubes, but the adaptors that I have liked the most are ceramic with brass. I think they might sound a bit better, I sure like they way they look and "feel" better.

I ordered the eBay ones from China. The quality sucks. I know, shocking!

I had to get the seller to send me another one. I tried them with a "matched set" of old RCA's. It sounded great but then started getting a buzz (not from the beer!). Then quickly shut the amp down. Thought it may be the old tubes. Then I bought the Russian equivalent tube. The same thing happened, after awhile I started to get a buzzing sound. Back to the EL34's.

If anyone has a source for a quality adaptor please post it!

Thanks!

Keith - Thanks for the lead on the maximatcher adaptors, they look really well built. I have gathered enough of the ebay stuff to get a pair working well enough to use (soldering, insulating) without any noise or problems. If I was to make some at the shop it would cost me a lot more than the maximatcher's. I still like my 807's the best, I have a new set coming soon so I'll be set for this winters indoor time.
