    Branded by a relabeller as Teonex EL34s.

    Had them since the 70’s, originally in a Hiwatt but they sound good in my Marshalls.

    Wondering what they are.

    There are some similarities…and some things that are different. The getters are not similar at all. Guitarteach’s pictures leave much to be desired compared to the pics in the sell ad. the plates seem to be similar. Same maker, different production???

    I was gonna guess old Tesla EL34's but then I noticed the getter rings and the oddly shaped support pieces that hold the top mica spacer. It does remind me of something from the Russian Reflektor plant or Sovtek.
