||New Mullards: Fact or Fiction|
I was just lookin around at the Tubestore (www.tubestore.com) and noticed that they are selling "brand spankin' new" Mullards. (12AX7's)
Is this a true? Are they being made again? (we hope)
Or should the Tubestore watch how they word NOS!?
|And now, a word from our sponsors:

AFAIK, Mullard isn't making any new tubes.

If Mullard was making new tunes I'd be "all up in that" as they say now-n-dayz.
I seriously doubt they are like the originals. I could be mistaken and I hope I am!! I'd love to see a large supply of them avalible.

I'm sure http://st6.yahoo.com/cgi-bin/clink?thetubestore+PnMWVR+index.html" TARGET="_top">thetubestore.com didn't mean to suggest that the http://st6.yahoo.com/cgi-bin/clink?thetubestore+PnMWVR+mullardecc83.html" TARGET="_top">Mullards they have on sale this month are of new manufacture. The tubes are NOS, and the exact quote from the page in question reads:
"Brand new Mullard ECC83 / 12AX7. Need we say more? Available at a sale price until August 31."
This page is normally only accessible from the "http://st6.yahoo.com/cgi-bin/clink?thetubestore+PnMWVR+nostreasures.html" TARGET="_top">NOS Treasures" section of their site, but they put in a direct link to it from the front page this month because the tubes are on sale. There is a link on the page itself that says "http://st6.yahoo.com/cgi-bin/clink?thetubestore+PnMWVR+nostreasures.html" TARGET="_top">More NOS Treasures", though.
Disclaimer: If you visit http://st6.yahoo.com/cgi-bin/clink?thetubestore+PnMWVR+index.html" TARGET="_top">thetubetore.com using any of the links above and make a purchase while you're there, AMPAGE does get a small commission on the sale. I hope this doesn't make my comments seem biased.

Thanks for dispelling the myth!

I can't imagine *them* peddling fakes for $45.95, anyway!
I would note that the Mullard brand name is currently property of Richardson Electronics, Ltd, who has used
the name on Russian tubes (AAMOF, I have a couple "Mullard"
Sovtek 6V6-GT's here). They also own the Amperex brand name.
This isn't tubestore.com's fault, but given the circumstances I can understand why someone would want to
double-check on the stuff...
