Western Electric is back
« on: 19 Jan 2018, 10:10 pm »
I have an all SS affair going on right now but this just piqued my curiosity and has me thinking about tubes again. New 300b's a power amp and a limited edition mono's. Might actually be exciting times we live in.

They are back since 1998 when they released that batch of expensive 300B that sound less than great according custumers and shorter time life than the original 300B, they will not release more tubes for some years.

I will def. wait for some reviews but a 421a I had was the only big money tube I felt was worth the extra coin. I think/hope there is some potential for something game changing.
