I find the 6sn7 sockets to hold up very well but the 300b/px-4 sockets get loose quickly.

That is true. 300b / px4 connections are less clamped but I do not roll, i use only my KR. 6SN7  socket is clearly more clamped.someone already had to change 6SN7 socket due to rolling too frequently?

  A thing i would like to know. Since i've got my BA, i've falled into a kind of rolling addiction : I often roll my 6SN7 tubes several times a week for fun, to discover many tubes, for varying my listening. So, Is the yamamoto base are very strong and i can roll without asking me questions or do I have to be care, not to stretch the pins on the connecting plate yamamoto to avoid false connects in the future ?

 
Tube rolling is fun, but don't overdo it. I'm sure you will settle in with a favorite or two. You want to get the point where it's about listening to music, not listening to tubes. :)

@Purrin : you're true. But i haven't got so much, only five references. All of them are so good, different flavor maintains BA's magic and, of course, my pleasure.

I would love to try the Vintage WE 300b. But they are so over priced. http://m.ebay.com/itm/311359550869


Those look like reissue WE300bs
