"These were even some fairly expensive ceramic base, gold contact sockets I'd substituted"
Glitzy Chinese parts, no doubt. I'd replace them all with NOS Amphenol or Cinch. Glad it was an easy fix.
Buy Chinese. Bury freedom.
I hate those sockets and cringe when I see folks touting the high build quality of amplifiers that use them.

Or for just a cuppla bucks get the light Brown Beltons from Parts Express or Parts Connexion. Tight and well -made.
You're right....even though these sockets had the right "qualities," they didn't have the right quality. :) If only I'd known about the Amph's or Cinch's back then....
