Hrm, nope! 90% Dutch Reformed in my neck of farmtown.

I would ask what is Dutch Reformed but it would be off thread.

Just won on eBay NOS NIB 2 X RCA 6EM7. Does this mean another amp?

Or a backup pair. Baby Amp eats a set every 1-1.5 years (running 16H/day)

Wow! You run that amp 16 hours a day? Impressive!

Most of my amps are being run hard if they get 4 or 5 hours a day.

On average my tubies run about 4 hours a day across seven days. When not working on at 1:30 to 5:30pm. If the wife is away not unusual to go from 1pm to midnight.

For several years, she was being run 20+ hours. Had the TV and music source hooked to it. The wife and I ran opposite shifts, so it was either amplifying her TV or my music all the time.

Cheers!

Lodda hours. Keep a good stock of tubes and the squirrel (ferret in Australia) on the wheel.
