Finally, an affordable mesh-plate 300B!
I recently reviewed the whole fleet of 300B tubes, and got to spend some time getting to know the Shuguang 300B-98B Mesh Plate, as well as comparing its sonics with the other tubes. I really like this tube. It's not a hugely different sound compared to the 98 (solid plate), but the price isn't much different either. I thought the Mesh was very musical, and it did rank a bit higher than the Solid in my music tests. It also looks nice with the white base and of course, has the best dark room glow of the bunch.
