NOS (New Old Stock), 1951 Visseaux 6V6GT - matched pair (two pairs) - rugged French military construction
These photos are from a sold quad. The pairs now for sale look the same with original boxes. I will update the photos soon or you can contact me to request photos of the actual tubes for sale.
Now considered one of the "holy grails". Considered by many to be the best 6V6 ever made. Considered by most to be one of the best!
Purchased as new old stock from HiTest Guitars. Never used. Smoked glass, black metal base. Visseaux stenciled on the bases and 6V6GT stencils on glass. Pins are shiny and do not indicate any use.
This was my goto 6V6 in my Dennis Had single ended pentode "Inspire" amp. I grabbed a few pairs as backups. But, as tube obsessives will understand very well, I moved on to something else before too long. Ended up running EL34/KT77's. So I'm keeping a couple of Visseaux pairs and selling the others. I expect these pairs to be the only available at the moment and maybe the only ones you will ever see going forward. Search for yourself and read reviews and comments. Grab 'em while you can!
I also have a NOS pair of earlier Visseaux 6V6G (coke bottle shaped glass) for $210.
