    At AXPONA, I heard, he was saying that preorders are shipping in 6 weeks and new orders will begin shipping around June.

    Psvane has a newish 300B that's looking like a bargain at $999/pair to join their own WE replica (which alludes in its description to just how long this WE guy has been telling people he's going to make new ones, though this time it looks like he's actually doing it).

    I've talked to a couple of amp designers who have mentioned that some of the new-production (by other brands, not the forthcoming officialish WE clones) 300Bs are actually electrically different enough from older/WE 300Bs that they don't work correctly in their circuits.

    Some new production "300Bs" are slightly different and designed to be used under slightly different parameters for extra power. The KR 300BXXXLS or whatever is one of these.

    As far as Pissvane, I have my doubts (I've owned several of their replica series and heard most of their existing line). They make stuff with a unique sound which I know will appeal to many. Personally, I'd still take a vintage tube, EML, or JJ (bargain) over any Psvane. As always, they can prove me wrong, and I will eat my words if they do. For $999, they better prove me wrong.

    I talked to a young guy at the show, got a vague answer about building these in batches, no firm ship date but the same general idea of them shipping soon.
