9-pin B9A Noval Plug Play NOVIB Socket Saver© July 10, 2019
Reviewer: Jeremy from CA  
These are my go to socket savers as well as most tube enthusiasts I know. The reason? Overall quality with emphasis on build quality. These are the best socket savers I have used! With the inclusion of a vibration resistant base, they have the potential to help reduce issues with microphonic tubes. They make tube rolling much easier and help save your gear in the process. Highly recommend these if you are venturing into tube rolling.

Plug Play NOVIB Socket Saver©-1960s NOS British Mc May 7, 2018
Reviewer: Kevin B. from California  
Dear Tubemonger:

I received your NOVIB, Noval, 9-pin socket saver. Man, what a great piece of tube equipment. Build quality is superb. I’m using it in a DAC headphone amp that uses one, dual triode tube. The DAC sits on my desk top. Before using the NOVIB socket, any contact with the desktop would vibrate the tube, and could be heard in the headphones. With the NOVIB installed, you can drum the desktop with your fingers with no effect on the tube or sound. And the sound quality is sharper, more focused, and cleaner with the NOVIB. Amazing. And I’m not using “cheap” tubes, either. I have several well regarded tubes, including your BRIMAR CV4304 - which is also superb.

Well done, Tubemonger.

Plug Play NOVIB Socket Saver©-1960s NOS British Mc February 16, 2017
Reviewer: T. Kuhl from NY United States  
My socket savers came in on Monday and they are of excellent quality and literally cured my very microphonic 6DJ8 Phillips. I've tried isolation pads, other socket savers, herbies tube dampers, nothing silenced these tubes like your sockets.. so thank you! They are truly a work of art
