Anyone interested ? One DF91 Lorenz !!!!! Maybe there are more sets to buy !!!! (Euro 19.90 per set)
Just had a very detailed telephone conversation with the shop owner of the link above:
So as a summary (ianmedium you are the lucky guy) lorenz stopped own production of tubes in a very early stage of selling them, instead rebranded and sold tubes where most of them were made in the united states. He mentioned for example the companies silvania, tungsol, general electric.
Before he buys any lorenz tubes, he checks pictures and codes of them to be sure of the origin.
So it's like playing russian roulette what you get.
But besides the set on ebay he has no lorenz df91, maybe one can understand now. One of the first sentences when calling me back was 'why the hell do you want especially lorenz?'
Maybe we should start looking for Usa made tubes?
The only company producing tubes in their own factory until near the end was telefunken, while a lot of siemens tubes are rebranded soviet tubes or from jugoslavia, Hungary or tschecheslovakia.Edited by GermanGuy - 6/14/13 at 8:20am
