    Fascinating! You'd think going to that much trouble they might actually make decent tubes again...

    Well, some of the info is dated.. But it's still of value and useful information.

    The only way to know for sure is to look at it's bottom. No matter what it's labeled, if it doesn't have a diamond in the center of the pins it's probably not a Telefunken made tube. Even true labeled Telefunkens.
