VACUUM TUBE BOXES
If you're here that probably means you enjoy looking at all the various different tube boxes of all ages. Just like me. Most of the boxes shown are scanned from my collection. Some pictures were given to me, but none were lifted from other sites without permission. There are some boxes that passed through our hands many years ago for which we have no picture. These are listed on the 'OTHER' page.
That also reminds me. When we closed the store front many years ago, although I kept the new tubes, which are a portion of what's for sale on the main page, I threw out hundreds of good, checked used tubes, some very rare. Just trashed them. If only I'da knowed! The used tubes I've since obtained are selling as well as the new!
But back to the boxes. That's what this section is about. First a couple of comments.
I was there in the service business when Zenith was the first of the major American color TV manufacturer's to go all solid state and a watched a few years later as RCA was the last (even though they developed the first solid state TV). I worked through the change from tube to solid state in Marine Electronics and Commercial two-way radio. We serviced big old tube type Fax machines (made by Alden Electronics) for the Naval and National Weather services, before they were little boxes that every small business had (Ha! Now they're just software in a PC system). That's why you find receiving, transmitting and special purpose tubes on our tube pages. We did it all, and I know what tubes are what from that era.
So, select your favorite brand and look at the pretty pictures.
