Re: 4CX250 tubes in London Power amps
Obviously, with those high voltages and custom trannys I can understand why these tubes are not being used that often in amps. I was asking these questions because I was curious. Altough a push pull pair of these tubes can push out 650+ watts, some of London Power's amps max out at 60 watts per side... I suppose these amps use much lower voltage settings and more common output transformers. I was also curious how these tubes sound, sure, mega wattage from a 20 year lifespan tube is neat, but what about tone??
