Single Ended Triodes (SETs), the ultimate tube lovers dream.

RE: Must admit that the thought crossed my mind....

From an inside source, who I am obligated not to name, Charlie has enough original material to fabricate 30,000 300B's. Production ceased because the original WE equipment ca. 1930s and 40s kept breaking down and they had to machine their own replacement parts. In the past year, that problem was solved by locating a supplier who was able to replicate the original equipment and provide spare parts, as well.

Apparently, during the 2000s they also had more lucrative contracts from the US Defense Department to produce replacement tubes for older radar installations and related equipment. When that equipment was finally withdrawn from service, those contracts ended, so Charlie revived the 300B to keep the business going.
