Tell the friend that due to an amp explosion you are now temporarily deaf and will judge her friend solely on looks.
Maybe I'm wrong, but are't they the same tube?

Yeah, it's the same tube. Why'd you make two threads, one about power tubes and one about preamp? Wouldn't it just make sense to make one or just read the sticky at the top of this forum...?

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

It would be hard to know for sure what the thread starter is talking about. ECC83 is the European designation for the triode known by the American code of 12AX7. ECC82 is a 12AU7, and ECC81 is a 12AT7. Could be any of those with the TS's question.
