Yep I way love the Sophia Electric™ Princess Mesh 300B, I run one in my 1/2 of my WOO headphone amp WA-6SE.

They truly are great sounding, they even have a few nicer tubes, out of my $$$$ range for 1 tube.

I am sure that those Western 300bs are amazing too, lots of air and separation, dead quiet noise floor too..

I would love to try the Royal Princess version too

Maybe I can call and get one and not a matched pair to test out.

Received the TJ's 6SN7s today. Direct from Hong Kong. Identical, same tube-box as the Sophia Electric. Same color and markings other than one is stenciled Sophia Electric and the other Fullmusic (or something like that).

Didi you guys see this, just got the email today.

New release: We are very excited about our new Sophia Electric blue glass 6SN7 tube. It has rich tonality and huge sound stage that you have to hear to believe. Designed to compliment to Aqua 274B and Classic 300B tubes, the new 6SN7 is a great choice to replace vintage 6SN7 tubes in all tube pre-amplifiers and tube amplifiers.
Domestic orders received between now and Friday the 28th receive free shipping!





And many other tubes too

I just received after years the new WE 300b tubes. Has anyone tried them yet?

I have the 1988 release in my Shindo amp.

And a set of matched 1950’s in my closet.

I'm curious whether you've rolled the various 300B vintages and if you noticed any differences? I have a pair of Shindo 300B's on the way as well as a back-up pair of new production WE 300B's arriving tomorrow. They should all be excellent given the care that has been taken to preserve the original tooling and materials, etc.
