    New Production WE 300b - Pre-Orders

    A heads-up for those following the new production 300b tubes from the re-established Western Electric: They will begin taking 300b pre-orders beginning Jan 11 in the US and Feb 15 elsewhere.

    Can someone please explain to me why there would be a charge for tube matching - a significant one.
    The tube matching price increases exponentially as the number of tubes increase $101 for 2 tubes - $303 for 4 tubes - WTF.
    They will be individually numbered & tested to ensure they meet or exceed spec - each tube "data" coded - data recorded & stored.
    The "matching" has already been done - WOW - I am stunned to say the least.

    Just saw that TubeDepot has a pair of 1930s manufacture Western Electric 300B tubes for sale. Only $19,995... get them before someone else does!

    https://tubedepot.com/products/nos-w...s-matched-pair


    Makes the new production WE 300Bs at $1499 per matched pair quite a bargain.

    Re: New Production WE 300b - Pre-Orders

    I preordered a pair of new production 300B Western Electric.
    Now the wait begins....
    No matter if they take a few months to ship. I have my beloved pair on duty.
