Recommendations please. Octal sockets.

Nothing wrong with Chinese gold plated, they are very well made.
Is it International Octal you require for 6SN7 type valves?

Good to know there is support for the Chinese stuff; it's widely available. The gold warning concerned using gold sockets with non-gold pin tubes.

Yes, 6sn7.

Thanks

I use Russian made octal sockets. You can get either the type that attach with a spring ring under the top plate or with the normal screw mount ring holder for either top or bottom mount.

I love these things. Very well made and not expensive. Given the choice of those or Chinese, I will choose Russian every time.

Where do you get the Russian made sockets?
