Which tubes do you think are better than the BB?

Right now I have 2 pairs of the stock 6BZ7 and they both sound better than the BB right now.

The BBs have more palpable bass than OG and stock GEs in my testing.
Clarity is excellent, however as what the others have mentioned, I too agree the soundstage is somewhat smaller compared to the other tubes.
I'm waiting to try out the Voskhods/Reflectors to see if they are better in terms of soundstage.

I know that I need more time on the BBs but they have a long way to go to outperform the 6BZ7s in my setup.

FWIW, my BB D getters started out very weak in the low end.  After about 60 hours - with some listening time building up to that mark - the bass is much better.  I've got bassier tubes (Teslas, off the top of my head), but the BBs have an excellent overall presentation.  So, give yours 100 hours or so.  If they haven't opened up by then...

The BBs were my favorite tubes until rb2013 sent me Silver Shield Voskhod Rockets.

I'll cross my fingers and hope for improvement.

I sent him '83 Silver Shields. Just to mention again, I'm having a really hard time finding these '75 Reflektor Silver Shield Single Wire Getter Post. If you come across a single and want to sell it, please let me know. These suckers are to die for!

Btw don't buy from ebay seller sovtek. Just got a box, 1/3 had broken pins or failed testing. His ad says NOS (new old stock), that's a joke! The guy ships in a thin cardboard box, that when it got here looked like it had been in a rugby match between the Ukrainian and Russian Army teams. The tubes were wrapped in newspaper, some tinfoil! No kidding. Not one broke, but still. His picture has a '75 Reflektor with the single wire getter post - didn't send one! What a tease!
