Hi,
I have never heard a NOS WE 300B so I cannot give a full answer.

However, I have new production WE 300Bs and can tell you that these are very, very good sounding valves and I personally can say that they are worth the money, to me.

They replace TJ mesh plate (high version) and the differences are clear, with WE's better in just about every way.

Hope this helps.

Default ok

thanks for your answer.
Some persons say that recent 300b the WE are constructed in China and that the remarkable difference is regarding 300b the Nos.

thanks luigi

but the real question

are the WE better enough to justify the hugely multiplied cost.

from the reviews i've seen, there are some russian & chinese ones that are comparable at a reasonable price.

Unhappy re-300b

the real issue IS also:
if the WE300b new are made equal the old ones 300bWE
Why they play differently?
and why there is satisfied people that 3.000.euro for one pair of WE300b of 1950?

And collector/prestige value. There's no output tube in that dissipation range in the history of tube manufacture worth that kind of money from an electrical standpoint. Sociology and psychology are different questions and that's well beyond my feeble understanding.
