Time Capsule Audio - Cunningham CX-310 triodes from the Roaring Thirties
I always found sooo sublimely intriguing and romantic thinking about a fragile tube which survived wars and riots and revolutions, floods, earthquakes, storms and hurricanes, several shippings, thieves and everything in-between...
I recently found one pair of N.O.S./N.I.B. Cunningham CX-310 from early '30s with their nice old-timey original boxes: the grandaddy of all 801A/10Y triodes family in a cool, classy "globe" glass envelope.
These will nicely and smoothly work in Thomas Mayer's 801A line stage pre-amp... they measures very similar, so, let's only hope for good microphonic rejection!
It's weird to say, but, IMO, it's like finding a four-leaves clover in a crowdy highway undertaking-lane... while driving;-)))
Thanking Brendan Biever and his always supporting tubes warehouse and good taste.
... cannot stop thinking that "this" was rocking and dancing, in "those" days...
