GE 5751 Matched Pair Clipped Plates 1953 NOS-TEST Matched Pair [Expired]


no longer for sale

GE 5751. 1953 Matched pair. I got these at the same time--only one shows the date code. Both have the mica-rounds on top and bottom clipped onto the plates to prevent microphonics. ULTRA-RARE construction. >>>These were made only from late 1951 to late 1953: for two years only, then corners were cut a bit--literally, as GE avoided labor-intensive 'clipping' and bent the plate flanges in the corners instead. Man, check out the mighty construction on these. In the Tube Lore from Joe, he mistakes these for RCA, which is forgivable, as sometimes GE sold to RCA (and visa versa) in the early 1950s. This earlier construction sounds more 'alive' in the opinion of many, including myself. Profound bass, rich focused mids (quite glorious, in fact) and better extension than later construction. Hickok TV-10 Gm data (1000 is the min, 2000 is typically NOS spec for 5751) 2250/2250 2250/2100 EICO 666 data (110-120 is typically NOS; 80 in the min) with 140 the meter max: 140/140 140/140 So, perfect test data, matched pair of the rarest 5751 ever made! You will see these rarely. Respect my feedback and knowledge of tubes as I respect the many Agoners (and 'Bayers) who have been totally delighted with my rare hot glass. Free shipping in CONUSA (USA sales only please, unless you email me at drughunter2@yahoo.com). Shipped USPS Priority with tracking for free and no PP charge. Turnkey transaction. I have been off Agon a while, disappointed with changes. Thought on Easter to forgive and forget--for now? Thanks.
