    Finally the Mullard GZ33 arrived today in perfect condition.
    Unfortunately I will not be able to enjoy them until Friday. That will be for a short time as I will be off to CAPE MAY NJ for the holiday weekend.
    But my friends enjoy the pic!
    PS Thanks Kentley for making me aware of these beauties on e-bay
    There a Beaut!

    You won't regret that purchase.
    Mullards are the German tanks of the rectum-fryer family. Set 'em and forget 'em.

    They resemble two noble falcons, ready to rectify the situation on the battlefield M-125. Excelsior!

    Gave the Mullards a test drive yesterday for about two hours and will be warming them up this afternoon for a short time.
    Just wanted to report that using the Mullards GZ33's with 4KT88's I set the bias to 1.000 and have not notice any difference in overall tonal balance.
    Two hours is just not enough time and the Mullards along with the four additional KT88's have to be broken in.
    I will say that I believe the mid-range has more support or better yet there is more detail.

    For now that's my review.

    A friend and Chicago area audio technician pointed out that many of these NOS tubes that pop up for sale could actually be tubes that checked out to be less than perfect back in the day and were unused for that reason. And now...many people pay a premium only to find out why these went unused.

    It seems to me that new good quality tubes are probably the best way to go.

    I imagine there are good old tubes out there but it seems that it's not worth the risk.
