    Mm, no - just my general experience of Dullards Mullards has not been a good one.
    These are a happy exception, though.

    So I'll defo pack the Mullard CV4024s then for a cross compare. That's a damned good valve so be interesting if the older ones you have are better.

    Let me brainwash you with Watford valves claims on the CV4024: https://www.watfordvalves.com/product_detail.asp?id=630

    "This is certainly the best Mullard ECC81 ever made"

    I have to now confess that I am not usually a big fan of Mullard valves, oft referring to them as Dullards.

    But, my goodness, you never can tell.

    The Mullard ecc81 are supa dupa in LAddy (aka LA Audio A-30) - my gosh. Focused and dynamic. Superb rez.
    Hoodathunkit? Not me.

    Easily the best sound I have so far got out of the little el84 amp. Luvverly.

    Not Dullard at all.

    Thanks Paul.
    thats good to hear Jerry, I bought them by mistake, didn't check which valves were in my phono stage. So I never got to try them and had no idea if they were any good. The ecc 82 and 83 I used were fantastic. I am tempted to try some 403B western electric in my headphone amp.
