Glass Fiber filled PPS
8-Pin (Octal) Tube Retainer
pcX is pleased to once again be stocking a variety of Belton Engineering tube sockets (made in Korea). Regarded by many to be the best molded plastic (Micalex - glass fiber filled PPS insulation material) sockets ever made, these parts have become very popular amongst Guitar amp manufacturers, as well as an increasing number of high-end audio tube electronics manufacturers, due to their super reliability.
NOTE: Sonic Frontiers was one of the first high-end audio companies to use these sockets, back in the mid-1990's.
Featuring solder-plated phosphor bronze contacts, the manufacturing quality of these sockets is superb, with extremely strong contact elasticity.
The 8-pin (Octal) sockets require a 1 3/16" chassis cut out (with 1.5" mounting centers), while the 9 pin sockets require a 3/4" chassis cut out (with 1 1/8" mounting centers).
Note: All prices below are for a single socket. We show 2 sockets in each picture so that we can show our customers the bottom and top of each socket.
IMPORTANT NOTE: During pcX’s Monthly Sales, There is NO DOUBLE DISCOUNTING applied over and above any "special pricing” on any item, including items with quantity pricing.
