These Beltons are the real-deal vintage-type sockets, like those found in many vintage amps. I prefer these to the flimsier plastic jobs sold by Tube Store (which are okay for generic use but not as robust). Having double perforations in the lugs makes for easy soldering and nice clean work when attaching things like heater wires and resistors that tend to clog up space on your output tube sockets. I only ordered a small sample of Beltons so far, but am switching to these for all my future builds and restorations.
Nice quality socket, perfect fit for vintage Traynor amps.
