Looking to re-tube my amplifier with KT88 Gold Lions. Went looking for suppliers and was surprised. Several well-known vendors say they get them from the Reflektor factory in Saratov, Russia. But one says there's are from someone called New Sensor Corp who has reissued them. I imagine it is possible as I doubt any patient exists after this many years. Is anyone aware if there are indeed multiple manufacturers?
Mike Mathews of New Sensor was the man responsible for using the Russian and other tube factories over there to set them up for tube manufacture. This all started back in the 80's and he purchased the rights to use certain names like Gold Lion.
He was successful in most regards but I have never tried their KT88's. Some or most of their tubes are quite good.
