Offered here are a pair of Western Electric 396A dual triode vacuum tubes. These are compatible in any position that calls for a 2C51, 5670, 6N3P, 6CC42 or 6385 tube.

These test well on my Hickok 533A tube tester. The life test is also strong, and there are no shorts or gas of course. Their pins have gone through a pin straightener to make sure that they're exact. I've also tested each one in the gain stage of my preamplifier to verify quality for a song or two. Microphonics are very low, to non- existent. Remarkably good sounding tubes, IMO.

The W.E. boxes are not original to the tubes (but are the correct style). I have many pairs available, so I can match transconductance or date codes as close as possible for you. Most of these are from the 60's or early 70's. Satisfaction guaranteed, or send 'em back for an exchange or refund.

Shipping in the continental U.S. will be a flat $5 charge. Other locations vary. PayPal is my preferred method of payment, and at no extra charge (the "Friends and Family" option is appreciated, but not necessary). I'll also accept a check or M.O. by mail. Price is for one pair of tubes.

Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for looking!
