Tinkering 6DJ8

6DJ8 is the tube of choice, small signal triode, with 2 triode encased in one glass envelope.

It has a large family which is fully compatible, namely,6922, 6N1P,6N11, ECC88, EC88C, E88CC, E188CC, E288CC, .

Plenty of tube rolling opportunity.

It is good sounding, wide applications. It's high Gm, medium gain and low Plate Resistance. With some circuit tinkering, we can build quality Pre-amp, Buffer-amp, driver for small power SE amp, headphone amp... etc

IMHO the only tube which will sound normal when connected as cascode.

There are plenty of NOS (New Old Stock) available, as well as current production.
