Not sure that I will use them any time soon.

I have Shindo WE300b amps, though I think those are 1988 we300b’s in them. I have some 1950’s engraved base ones in the closet too.

I just wanted to make sure I had some just in case.

I keep debating whether or not I need a 300b amp. Maybe in the fall.

If you like warm rich sound with mid range drive... you probably do.

I do. With horn speakers.

My question is these 300b tubes compared to older WE or other 300b tubes.
