C'mon guys .... give me SOME credit.  I figured it out.  I keep clicking until I reach the place where it says , "BOB KEEP OUT", and then I stop.  What kind of dummy do you think I am?

One characteristic of the Stuttgart tubes is the top tip where the glass was sealed together was usually much longer than other tubes.  It was not uncommon to see part of the tip broken off even though the tube would work just fine.

The set on the right are the grey-shield Lorenz that I used to own...frown.gif

The right tube's tip is broken as I mention, but it played just fine.

I don't know if you saw this, but Tubemonger has a library of photos for tubes they have sold.  I pulled these photos from the site.  The focus is on the 3-mica tubes but the grey-shield, squat bottle, and fused-getter tubes are pictured as well.

 

3-Mica Tubes:

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 75CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 75

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 75CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 75

 

Grey-Shield (non 3-mica):

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 75CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 75

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 75

 

Squat Bottle:

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 75

 

Fused-Getter:

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 75

Great pics and  info !

I like the tapered waist.

That really helps.

Unfortunately, that's a trick of the light (or focus).  I don't remember any of the Lorenz having a tapered waist.  If anything, the tubes tended to look "over-inflated", as if they weren't using any mold or form to maintain the shape.

Ahh...the grey-shields...I see what you were talking about.biggrin.gif  I think they were formed by hand (looks it at least)

Not my day today .... I'm trying to copy & paste into my Lyr but it's not working

For folks like me that are relatively uneducated about the inner working of tubes, I stumbled upon this guide that I find fascinating.

Hey everybody, I got an e-mail from Tubemonger saying they caught our conversation on the Lorenz tubes.  They were kind enough to provide the sales reference page for each type they sold.  They also offered up some alternative brands to look for (unfortunately all are out of stock).  I'd like to thank the Tubemonger guys for providing the info!  Here's the e-mail I received:

 

 

Our tech noticed discussion on Lorenz PCC88 tubes on the Lyr thread. Here are the links of specific tubes we had for sale in the past.

That is very cool of them. Wonder why none of us asked for specifics in the past.

 

Thanks for relaying that info, HK.

...and since I was in communication with them, I did ask about whether they had any line on additional stock.  Unfortunately, they don't.frown.gif  I'm still hoping for some hidden cache of Stuttgart tubes to be discovered in some old stock room or warehouse along with Jimmy Hoffa...wink_face.gif
