    Default WTD valves

    Bit of a long shot... Looking for a matched pair of ECL82 valves, pref mullard.

    Are they the ones with driver and power valves in a single valve? Have seen them in Eastern electric amps in recent years but that's it.

    I've got some ECL80, '84 and '86, but no '82. Ho hum.
    Firebottle - for the no bottleneck approach.

    I love Hendrix for so many reasons. He was so much more than just a blues guitarist - he played damn well any kind of guitar he wanted. In fact I'm not sure if he even played the guitar - he played music. - Stevie Ray Vaughan

    I've got 1 mullard ECL82,may have another but if I have it would not be a "matched pair" (how many are).Pity it's not ECL86 you're after,must have about 30-40 of those ,and it is an ECC83+EL84 in one envelope
    Nothin' I do don't seem to work ,it only seems to make matters worse!.

    I know. There are a few mullard but always in singles, a matched pair is like hen's teeth. The Valvo I have on order are matched and supposedly very good (if from Hamburg). Watford Valves have Mullard but didn't respond to questions regarding matching.

    With Watford valves you need to call them and they will sort you out
