Coolest tubes ever!!!
KT66 Nos Gold lion Genelex tubes
I was the lucky guy to cut the bags open after 50 years .
Most mortals never get a chance to do this with these tubes so I had to show them;)

Nice! I just scored a matched quad of NOS military (thicker glass; better QC) Teslovak (pre JJ) KT88s for my Sunn. Can't hardly wait for those to arrive. Not as nice as a set of Gold Lions, but at 1/4 (or less) of the price it's what I can afford.

If you're a tube amp geek (and I consider myself one, btw), it doesn't get much better than that! Cheers... :D

Holy crap! Dare I ask the price?
I had a chance to buy a case of 100 NOS for 20$ each around 20 years ago. That would have been a good investment!

Theres something about the controlled mid range under high volume pressures that the old KT's just do better!!!
Especially the bluesbreakers amp design .(JTM45)

One of the nicest sounding tubes imho. I bought a pair of new Gold Lions for Marshall build I will be starting soon and thought $50 each was pricey...whew!
