Response to I thought nobody made tubes in the US anymore

I think somebody bought the name some time ago because of the brand equity and they are now marketing 300b SET tubes for audiophiles .

The people at vacuum tube valley are the authorities on such things .

I believe pittman has bought up old ge tube manufacturing equipment and is running it , maybe in pennsylvania somewhere .

The "red bank" tubes are still manufactured in jersey I believe and have been for quite some time . they make those for the military , they are VERY rugged cause they use em in missiles . they have to withstand 1000's of G's you know ,or hundreds , whatever it is it's alot !
