  1. Beautiful! Tabernacle choir Maynard
  2. Richard, you have a thyratron. Its uses are described under “typical circuits” section of the data sheet. It really has no use in audio equipment but may have some value to collectors of old WE stuff. Maynard
  3. It is not possible to make such a recommendation. A particular tube will likely sound different in every piece of equipment in which it is used because of differences in operating parameters. Personally, I don’t believe in tube rolling but, if it’s important to you, you need to buy a number of different types and evaluate them yourself in your piece of equipment. Maynard

  7. As was stated above by DE, speaker impedance is not an issue for SETs. If you use an opt tap corresponding to the lowest impedance of the speaker, distortion will decrease as the impedance rises. I believe Edcor’s bandwidth ratings are at 1 watt whereas Hammond’s are at full rated power. If used well below that, the Hammonds are capable of amazing bandwidth. See George Anderson’s measurement of the 125CSE: http://tubelab.com/articles/component-testing/budget-output-transformers/ Maynard
