These are advertised as "improved" and they are guaranteed.

Bet the British sold their tube making equipment to somebody behind the
"Iron Curtain"...

I don't work for New Sensor but I do have an interest in keeping them
around.  They have JAN tubes, Sprague high Voltage capacitors, transformers,
etc.  True, they are geared toward musicians; but they have decent prices
and they are nice folks.  (BTW, they sell the Tesla KT-88, acclaimed as the
best sounding high-power audio tube available today;  and the low power 300B
for the triode freaks, too.)
If you have a service shop, request their commercial catalog; the prices are
significantly lower.
