Update from the Elrog tube factory. They were busy with the renovation, but now tube production is in the full run. You can see the new 300B tubes, with refreshed packaging with the name company change, but it still keep the Elrog as brand name for the tubes.
Newly introduced are tube bases with more massive pins, that are custom made by Reinhöfer Electronic and glass bulbs, that are now produced by professional glass blower for laboratory glass ware.
Glass itself remains the same special glass made in Germany by Schott, but they now deliver the raw glass tubes to Schmidt Laborglasgeräte where they can manufacture more constant and uniform look from tube to tube.
For those, prefering the traditional hand made look, they are still produced.
With these changes each part of the tubes and each manufacturing step is entirely done in Germany.
