What if the best sound was achieved decades ago? In 1938, Western Electric manufactured the first type 300-B electron tube. It was a breakthrough power triode, but in those days it hummed away from behind a curtain in early Hollywood sound systems. The same things that served moviegoers back then—low noise, ultra-long life, sonic purity and warmth—made it a standout tube for music lovers and vintage audio collectors as the years passed. Deep into the age of the transistor, communities around the world in search of true, original, high-fidelity sound rediscovered the 300-B and its exceptional performance. New amplifier designs brought the tube front and center, its customary yellow lettering on proud display.

Sometimes, the old ways are the best.

Today, the 300-B is re-entering production at the Rossville Works. Our new manufacturing home was custom-built to master the dozens of individual demands of tube making, from sealing the iconic glass bulb to the complex metallurgic processes within. We’ve modernized the production line here and there to establish forward momentum at a company with 150 years of history. Western Electric believes twenty-first century listeners deserve twenty-first century manufacturing standards.

For the 300-B’s 80th birthday, we’re announcing pre-orders will begin in the US on January 11 and in select countries February 15.

IMPORTANT: Pre-ordering is for customers who wish to purchase tubes directly from Western Electric. You will not be charged until your order ships. You may update, cancel, or otherwise edit your order at any time using your confirmation email. When charged, you may be asked for approval by your bank or credit card provider. In the event that your payment information changes or expires in the time after your order is placed, you will be asked to re-enter your information or contact Western Electric to ensure fulfillment. Your information is not visible to Western Electric and is stored using the highest PCI compliance standards available.

Western Electric is committed to meeting renewed, worldwide demand for the 300-B. Exact time of delivery is based on a first-in, first-out allocation system and a scheduled ramp in production at the Rossville Works. Quantities will be limited and restrictions apply. For questions regarding the pre-order process, email

Customers in select countries outside the United States will be able to pre-order beginning February 15, 2019.

Did you hear? In December we announced 300B pre-orders would begin in the US January 11, 2019 and in select countries worldwide February 15, 2019. See the official announcement. Limited quantities, restrictions apply
a7ff6789-f95a-494d-a636-5132096aea0d.jpgAll the action behind the highly anticipated return of the 300B is at the Rossville Works, where construction was completed in time for the holidays. Progress will continue in the first weeks of 2019 when prove-in and full scale production begins. As a subscriber to this mailing list you'll be kept up to date. 

At this time, we are in the crucial testing stage, during which every piece of machinery on the factory floor passes final inspection and we see the various pieces of the first trial tubes come together. We’ll run tests, second tests, third tests, then do it all over again until the Rossville Works meets the Western Electric standard of quality on every operational level.

  • What is 300B pre-ordering? Keep scrolling for a step-by-step guide.
  • Scroll further for a sneak peak at Western Electric's latest amplifier, the 91E, debuting this spring at Axpona.
Western Electric is committed to offering an easy and secure pre-order process for the 300B. Pre-ordering means early access and a spot in line for the first available tubes out of the Rossville Works. You won't be charged until your order is ready to ship. Read how it works below:
*Minor design changes may occur during final production
In addition to completing our new electron tube operation in 2018, we made great progress with a new integrated amplifier, the 91E. It was recently taken from prototype stage three into pre-production. The 91E embodies a new proprietary Class A2 parallel feed current source topology (patent pending), combined with toroidal output transformers, and microprocessor controlled automatic bias. It will achieve in excess of twenty watts per channel—a never before realized, revolutionary level of performance for the 300B in a single-ended circuit. 

Today we’re excited to offer a first-time look at the final design. The new look is for listeners who appreciate luxurious amplifier design balanced with Western Electric’s sturdy, function-over-form style. 3D rendering technology allows us to provide a stunning sneak-peak.

You can hear the 91E, the ultimate 300B amplifier, when it debuts this April at Axpona. We hope to see you there.
