    Cory, can I ask where you bought the TAD's from? I don't find a lot of retailers carry them in the US.

    Thanks.

    I got mine (TAD 7025 WA) from Antique Electronic Supply. Only $20.

    Note that it's NOT the same tube as the TAD 12AX7.

    EDIT - Looks like Sprack found em too.

    Forgot about AES/Tubesandmore. Brandon has been super helpful in the past and they've got a good selection of eclectic stuff. Definitely support them.

    I bought one of these last year and I wanted to find out a bit more info regarding the year it was made but I can't find the serial number. Any thoughts?

    Is the serial number plate missing? It's usually in the back of the amp just above the power cord. Should be in the format of R-XXXXXX.

    In one of my earlier posts in this thread I described the revisions, you can usually figure out the amp revision just by looking at it, and that will give you a clue as to when it was made.

    Also, my amp has the manufacture date written inside of it (August 1993). If you pull the chassis out and flip it over (careful!) you can probably find a similar date inside.

    That would be the rt080, not the rt010.
    Both are great tubes though.

    You'll find the revision written on the pcb
