Default Re: Pre3 problem.

Hi Philip,

Sounds like a noisy valve, have you swapped them over to check or popped in a new one?

Pre3 runs them quite hard compared with a lot of other gear (several whole mA!) and Gerry B and I have both had noisy ECC82, the supplied JJs in particular.

I think they would be fine in gentler applications but perhaps the extra heat gets to them. We made up a good pair between ours and that was fine and I use some nos Mazda/Thorn which are good and have been in 2 or 3 years now
