Hi Le Basseur,  
I restored some old Austrovox amps last year, look here: and  
Note that the tone stack in one channel of the deluxe 50 is wired wrong (I just wrote down what I found), the bass amp has the correct version in both channels.  
I also recall that many of the 60s Echolette amps used this tube (like Showstar, Mustang and so on).  
You are lucky with your NOS 808s, they usually go for 25-35 Euros a piece. Fine tubes, less noise and microphonics than most ECC83.  

Le Basseur Hi Albert,Thanks for your reply... -- 3/14/2004 10:24 PM
