Never heard the 60s WEs so not sure about that. 50s Foton double micas are very good, and I had some 1985 Russian Reflector 6N3P that were outstanding - not equal to the Holy Grails mentioned before but very very good and cheap. I have some 60s Raytheon 5670 square getters that are good also. Don't recall if I tried Tungsols, but if so - they didn't make an impression.

I don't know about this seller but this is the size lot I got back in 2017. These tubes are incredibly good for the money. The seller I got mine from a few years back sold them for the same price (for 8 tubes) that were NOS) but now, he sells matched pairs for $70+ His storefront is Jetparts.

You can give these a try as they're super cheap.

Or these

Or even this one but it's not a 2c51 variant, Still excellent especially for the money

Thanks for your help and opinion DRhamp, particularly in the LP. I will move over to the LP tube thread and don't want to derail the Ember tube rolling thread! I do own a Garage 1217 really basic amp, Project Starlight, and am very happy with the opamp and tube rolling this allows! Was't quite sure if folks had done more than 6zdj8 / 6922 / 7308's in the LPuntil I finally found the TP tube rolling thread.

The ones @koover mentioned from jetparts on EBay are the 85 Reflektors I mentioned ( in fact, Koover led me to him) - I paid $22 for 8 of them, and that included shipping from Russia - they are still one of my all-time favorites

Trust me (yeah right, haha) these are literally a steal. Go for it. Especially the ones in the 1970’s. Check out all the links as they’re all very very good for the money. If you don’t like the cheapies, I’ll buy them from you. But I’ll wager you’ll like them for less then a $1 a tube. Lol
Personally I have 4 pairs of the Redlektor triple micas and they’re a hair below the Foton triple micas which are as rare as a unicorn.
