In my experience most of the black glass UK 6sn7 variants tend to sound better than the clear ones.  It just my opinion.

That is correct... smoked glass all day. RCA if you can.

I think that's true for STC Oldway production, but not for STC/Brimar Footscray production.

 

 

(Brimar was owned by STC till 1960.)

How big was STC back then?

When I think of them I think they are Western Electric of the UK.  Because the made the UK variant of the 300b and 274b and others.

I've been in the Western Game for 20 years now... Still waiting for something new to impress me like this company does.

STC makes ok stuff... no where near the same quality.

Quite big I'd say.

 

 

For years, STC was a subsidiary of ITT. (ITT also owned Standard Elektrik Lorenz in Germany and other Standard companies in other countries.)
