Hi,

Please , could you tell me if in your experience the 12B4 tube is microphonic ? What brand do you suggest?

Thanks,
Paolo

12B4s can be microphonic. So, use silicone rubber "O" ring dampers on the envelope directly over the mica wafers.

Perhaps other brands are better, but going RCA is always safe. Get black plate tubes, if possible.
