The only NOS tubes I have are some RFT's and a bunch of Phillips Miniwatts, all 12ax7
The RFT's are slightly darker than the Phillips and sound really good in both my amps when I use them
The Philliips Miniwatts win though, they just have a warmth & clarity to them that to my ear sound much better than the RFT's
They have a very musical sound to them and I was lucky to find them at an antique radio shop over 10 years ago in original packaging and appeared unused. A few of them have the Phillips logo on one side and Mullard on the other
I found miniwatts microphonic in V1 unfortunately. They're aggression was great. I agree...these are nice. RFT's weren't the hype others said. They are what a JJECC83S should be. Better but got no boner in my Marshallz which every Tom, Dic K and Harry said they mattered.
