Re: The Nemesis 813 PP Amplifier

It's not Russion in origin but a WW2 copy of a German Wehrmacht transmitter valve. That's a fair point Ray.. But Russian valves are very often a copy of one of the West's tubes, but it does not mean they will sound as good as the originals...although I've heard some very nice new 2a3's over the yea...
