Product Description Title:
Cetron 845 Vacuum tube valve triode audiophile code rare vintage amplifier used

Product Description Full:
For the audiophile a super high quality 845 tube carefully made in the USA by Cetron in Geneva, Illinois with markings of 845, code 147 and 1-4. Recently tested and is used (not new) however refer to technical data and screen shot for further information. These can be used for your high end amplifier to achieve a sonic bliss or any other high end equipment as you see fit (including military use). Cetrons are very highly rated almost up with RCA’s. These are fare more superior than the common typical Chinese 845 tubes, especially one in this condition.

Glass is clean and clear (except slight discoloration in picture), tube is in great shape physically and sonically, a bit more extension and upper energy than other 845s and definitely a cut above any of the various Chinese 845 tubes incl 845B. Extremely well made, with rugged internal construction. Dead quiet as far as any humming, guaranteed as described, and closely matched on a curve tracer to 500v on the plate. This is a superb vintage 845, which do not come up for sale very often, we’ve tried them several amps and they sound terrific and work perfectly.
