Hey Dubstep Girl,

 

It is ceramic.  I'm not by it at the moment but I can snap a picture a bit later.

Thank you... it is indeed.  I picked it as my main tube ahead of the newer EML 5u4g and SP 274b - I had an old (super tall) EML 5u4g solid plate that came my amp and found it to be my favorite tube.   Oddly enough the newer EML 274b seems to have the most in common with that old 5u4g.  There should be a writeup I did a couple years back in the giant Woo Audio thread.

Was thinking of selling my plastic base eml 274b and upgrading to this ceramic base one because my eml 5u4g is ceramic. I think i will wait though.

This is a nice tube though especially with the wa22

Hmm...nice price, DG, how is this compared to 596 and 422A? I'm tempted on the 422A...

I got several psu's to use this tube on besides the wa6se.

its about as good as the 596, but not as good as the 422A. i personally preferred the 274b slightly to the 5u4g eml, but they're kinda the same just different sound.

 

only the metal mullard comes close and the u52 or the cossor gz37 coming in at 3rd and 4th respectively.

Ooh, I had one of those.  A '56 second gen.  That thing cut like a razor blade.  Actually preferred this in my Woo, but liked that more in a DNA Sonnet. 

 

In any case, this one is sold.
