| ADMIRAL |
|These two tube boxes represent the Admiral style from the 1950's through the early 1970's. Tubes from these boxes usually carry the GE (188) or Sylvania (312) EIA/RETMA manufacturer's code. Date coding was by the year-week method.|
We acquired these from a friend who was an Admiral Sales and Service Center and we often traded needed parts back and forth. In later years we became an Admiral Service Center ourselves, but by then they were mostly solid state.
Admiral was an equipment manufacturer, not a tube manufacturer. -Maybe! Admiral's original parent company was Continental Radio (later Radio & TV). In the 1930's their products were branded Continental. In 1940 they began branding products Admiral while retaining the Continental corporate name.
