There are two types of Taylor’s VT-4C, different getters, solid thick disc getter and tin getter

Differences: GE vs Taylor
Although they seem to be identical construction, there are big differences. Taylor has just a bit squared plates vs completelly oval plates, tripple welding points at base (Ge has two), two screws (GE has one), strip line vs wire, …

Both grid and plate leads brought through side of stem instead of press, thereby preventing punctures and dielectric losses because of close spaced leads in press, as is the case in other 211 type tubes.

This tube sounds better than GE, it’s very close to RCA and United Electronics 211, in some amplifiers it’s even better
