I was just about to pick some Elrog 300Bs for my 3ES today too. The thread has definitely got me curious about them

First off, I’m a 300B rookie, but thrilled with the Elrogs in the Envy. I always thought that the WE would be my ‘real’ 300B pair with a 5 year warranty and being US made. After reading about how underwhelming they sounded by those having both I switched over to Elrogs.

They are nothing short of stunning snd I’m loving the sound AND the brilliant glow!!!

Everyone with Elrogs needs to remember, these are completely different tubes from the classic 300B architecture. The reason they sound so different (superior?) is because they are essentially different tubes, that just so happen to have the same electrical characteristics. Much like a Honda Civic and a Ferrari California are both cars but are engineered and perform on different levels.

Yes, you and some others have said these are not a classic or traditional 300B sound.
I only have the stock EH Gold and now the Elrogs so that is the extent of my comparisons. I can say that I prefer Elrog's take on a 300B and by a long shot!

If you enjoy collecting 300B's and comparing them or rolling them with a particular type of music or amp, great!
Personally I have too many tubes (WHAT??? kick his A** out of here!!!) sitting in boxes and totes unused and hope to NOT start collecting 300B's!!!!
