  1. And here we go, Brimar again – I got lucky recently and received a lot of superb Brimar (BRItish MARconi) tubes. This tube is very nice. Transparent, airy, musical – worth searching for. The biggest issues with these tubes is that there are so many fakes out there. Brimar got abused during later days of tube manufacturing and the brand was stamped on tubes that were not manufactured by Brimar in UK. I had a lot of tubes that are branded Brimar, but are actually made in Russia. One sure way to determine that a Brimar is a Brimar is to locate Brimar’s date stamp, but that could be hard since Brimar is one of the few European companies that didn’t use acid codes, so they come off very easily and could be completely removed from a tube just by accident. Look for a tube with flat top, Brimar has one of the flattest top tubes and no creases like Mullard or Amperex. Also Brimar has either square or round getter (in the majority of cases it’s quite large). So look for it and enjoy!

    • NOOO!! Gosh.. it is INCREDIBLE the misinformation spread on these tube sites! Even worse when its the guy that runs it! Well, you are in good company, actually. Kevin Deal spews all kinds of historical and technical errors, Brent Jesse is even worse.

      Ok, so you gotta STOP with the ‘British Marconi’ stuff. That is absolutely NOT what Brimar means, dude. Repeat after me

      BRI-tish Made American Range.
