    I have a bunch of Rivera Labelled Chinese 12ax7's that look exactly the same. I know that they could no longer get them, but apparantly are now available again.

    The black plate has slightly less gain than the all chrome version. Great valves these, though, as long you want drive and a linear response. I use pickups with a broad response and I can't stand the relatively scooped Tung-Sols everyone seem to be going on about.

    Yeah, it looks like the recent "R9" version.

    Definitely not the "prized NOS" version from the '80s.
