Good EF86 type tube


I tried this tube at the input of pro audio microphone preamplifier. It is quiet in this position where there are no vibations, seems to be well made, golden legs aren't advantage because most sockets have Ni contacts. Can't hear or see much difference compared to EH EF86, so i'm continuing to use them at lower price and similar performance.

Gold pins, works, but still noisy/microphonic


Not to rehash my review of the RFT tube, but i tried this one as well, trying to find a tube that would be as noise free as the Amperex tube i currently move from amp to amp when recording. Tried in a Dr.Z, a Matchless clone and a Badcat Judah. all amps sounded essentially the same as the EH tube i had on hand, and this tube was just as noisy as well. even with dampers on it.
