To impact WA6 SE's sound quality or for your super backup. Buy and ship independently.

Sophia Electric™ 274B tube is a premium rectifier tube for a 5U4/5R4/5AR4 direct replacement with 3X longer plate structure, thus it has a deeper, wider sound stage and even smoothier sound than Mullard 5AR4.

Drive/Power tube option:
1 matched pair of 13EM7 plus one pair of 13EM7->13DE7 Teflon tube adapters.
$150 (2 tubes + 2 adapters). NOTE: 13EM7 can NOT be used on the 1st gen which has a '6DE7' label printed next to the tube sockets.

The 13EM7 is the ultimate driver/power tube for the WA6-SE. It has great extension and excellent clarity on all frequency range. You will hear each note with breathing air around it. The sound is smooth and well balanced.

This tube is compatible to the WA6-SE. NOTE: Serial number begins with 0410 is not compatible unless a modification is done. You will need to use a tube adapter becaue the pin layout is different than the 13DE7. It is a twin triode tube with high amplification factor. It produces higher output.
