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