Marshall VS8080

Well, that was a bust.
The tube arrived in the post today. Plugged it into the base and........... it works.

Was hoping for something more exciting I suppose. Just bought a $300 amp for $60.

The volume potentiometer is bad though and a few others too so I'll replace them in time.

A pic of the two tubes. The pink Lines mark points in the Glass where a blackening is on the old but not the new. They are both 12ax7 tubes.

Old           New

Going to have to find some other shit to fix.
thanks for watching

  1. Your Marshall 8080 is a good two channel 80 watt amp
    The 12AX7 or ECC83 is a minature dual triode with an amplification factor of 100. Very popular in audio amplifiers and audio stages of radios and televisions form the old days.
