EAT KT88 Diamond Valve

EAT KT88 Diamond Valve

A KT88 tube that is in a league of it's own. This KT88 tube is available in factory-matched pairs, quads, octets and 16tets. It's construction features include black plates, black metal base, and gold pins.



The EAT KT88 has an designed maximum anode dissipation rating of 35W and is recommended for use in the output stage of an a.f. amplifier. Two valves in class AB1 give a continuous output of up to 100W. The KT88 is also suitable for use as a series valve in stabilized power supply.
