Any one try an 807 tube?

You can use an 807 tube, with an adapter, of course. It is the same as a 6L6 , which I tried in my Mini. It has a bigger sound than the standard 6V.

I just put a pair of Shuguang 807s in my Rachel and the results were spectacular. Better than EL-34s or 6L6GC's.

Rorschach, HDrider on this forum also runs 807s in his Rachael, and loves that combination.

Curious, sonically how does the sound differ from the standard EL-34s that are typically used in the Rachael?

Tommy / Rorschach - Yes I do love my 807's in our Rachel. Actually all the tubes I have rolled in the Rachel sound really good, but the 807 just sounds more natural to me. Lame comment I know, just that at this point with our Decware gear if I don't just melt into whats playing, I know something is amiss. I used to sell VTL's way back in the day and I always borrowed the Triode 120 monoblocks on my weekends. It was 60 watt triode or 120 pentode and ran 807's. At the time it was the best think I ever heard at home. I should have taken Luke up on a pair at salesmen pricing....but our Decware rig slays everything I had heard. Done search, just listening now...Happy listening ya all and enjoy that weekend when it shows up. Chris
