SLO retune, again
« Thread started on: Feb 14th, 2017, 5:10pm »
So, I have read a lot of good stuff about the tung sol 7581's for a Soldano SLO Does anyone have any advise or input or experience in using Tung Sol 7581's in a SLO and what are simply the best tubes to install in a Soldano SLO. I am sure this has been discussed before, however the 7581's are I believe kinda new. Please advise

SLO idle plate voltage is 505 volts. Most tubes today are toast after 480 plate volts and hard use. JJ's are gone quickly when pushed hard past 480. I smoked 3 quads one year.
5881's are rated at 350 plate volts with a 100% overload to 700 plate volts. Hope these 7581's work out, just tossing this out there.
