That's my understanding of it as well, as described by MB. I've read somewhere that they are extensively prescreened and then the band (which looks like thick shrinkwrap tubing to me) is added to further enhance resistance to microphonics. I would be willing to bet that as far as manufacturer goes, they are just whatever cheap flavor of the month MB is selling at the time (which for the longest time were the chinese tubes but I'm not sure anymore).
