 Perfectly mached and balanced within 6 % so ideal in any stereo device..

Very unique and detailed sound, astonishing and fantastic in high gain stage to get a more define and less muddy sound. Many vintage Marshall player love them even more than the more renowed and so great british Mullard Blackurn.
Crystal clear clean with warmth.
Very sought after by audiophile and pro recording studio for their imcomparable 3D midrange ( Wich is subtlely more pronounced than Blackburn ones) this makes it an outstanding tube for guitar and vocal . It Has good bass and sweet pleasant highs too.
Those I65 have little ring getter.

Let your Marshall, Orange, Hiwatt or any nice amp get its full original tone . Hear and feel the difference.

The Jackson 648. It is definitely one of my favorite tube testers. While it does not employ a mutual conductance test circuit, it does use an advanced emission circuit that applies separate element voltages to each tube element, and separate load circuits are also used. “These voltages and loads have been carefully selected for each tube to meet most ideally the normal operating condition of the tube.” (Source: 1950 Jackson catalog.)

In my experience, the Jackson circuitry is very effective, and often will surprise you with accuracy that approaches Hickok’s coveted “mutual conductance” test method. ( Source tubesound web site.)

I do my best to test and describe the tubes the best I can. Note that test results may vary from one tester to an other so this must be taken as an indication, although my jackson is regulary tested for calibration.  Photos are part of the description you get what you see.
