Missed this one. Now this is more my price range:

https://www.tubedepot.com/products/nos-western-electric-engraved-base-300b-black-plate-late-1930-s-matched-pair

Iím sure the price is a typo, right???
Nope.  It is for real.  Or surreal, but still, that is the price!

And...

You know what?  Someone will pay that price...

That pair will go well with this $54.96 300B kit. Just need a chassis.

Thanks for showing this.  8) Just for sport I pulled the trigger.  :roll:  I have a power TX that will work.  I'll probably end up with these for output TX:

I have used quite a few of their TX before (guitar amps) and they are really good at their price points, plus they are only 200 mies away.

Everybody needs a 300B amp.

  I would need two pairs. Are not the new production WE tubes better ? Edcor makes excellent transformers.
