Just be glad they aren't 300b tubes. Which tubes did you end up settling with?
That's true. I ended up with RCA black wavy plate 2A3s, an Amperex 5AR4 and hopefully soon a WE396. Would love to try the Bendix 6385/2C51 but those seem impossible to find.
This is why I'm so excited about @dsavitsk's Ravenwood 3F amp. No tubes.
This whole tube thing is really a blessing and a curse. Thankfully reading SBAF has brought my overall nervosa levels down quite a bit.
