Wants extra Sovtek 6550
« on: February 02, 2022, 04:14:16 PM »
So many more view and post on this sub forum, if need be, please move to correct forum.

I have three 6550 Sovtek tubes with a black base. They have limited use, so pretty good shape. I would like to purchase  one more Sovtek 6550 for testing and comparisons, black base preferred, metal base is alternative.

Can anyone help?

cheers and thanks.

steve

Thanks for looking Gents. Sure appreciated.

Maybe another viewer might have one to spare. It does not have to be brand new, just decent/ok shape.
Can use those tubes for movies, thus save the expensive tubes.

Cheers and thanks again.

steve

ps. I received a couple so all is well now.
