Many people seem to really like the gold lion and it's indeed probably the best new production tube. It's nice smooth forward sounding tube, but the $35 + shipping is just too high price for a tube that is essentially a upgraded rocket logo. More refined and extended rocket. I'm willing to sell my mint condition gold lion to anyone interested (living in Europe) just PM me and lets work you a deal you can't pass.
Siemens, in my opinion, is a very nice tube and you can get them relatively cheap from German sellers if lucky. http://www.ebay.com/itm/4-x-Tube-PCC88-SIEMENS-7DJ8-Suit-ECC88-6DJ8-6922-Akin-Cca-7308-E88cc-etc-/321185693288?pt=Vintage_Electronics_R2&hash=item4ac828be68
