Siemens are a huge German owned manufacturer that has made and developed some of the worlds best vacuum tubes. Siemens first patented the x-ray tube On March 24, 1896. Siemens have made some of the best sounding audio valves that have become highly sought after for their sound and build quality.
These Siemens ECC88 are known for a having a smooth mid-range and clear high end with an excellent tight bass response.

These were a very popular item for any high-end line stage or phono stage application. Most of our customers bought back-up sets as they were very pleased with the musical performance of this valve.

These have all the hall marks of the Philips Siemens valves as they have the seams on the top of the valve bottle. They also have the distinctive dimpled lorry wheel disc getter with A-frame support. The anode plates are the typical frame grid style plates.

So as Philips sold the tooling to the E.I factory in Yugoslavia my belief is that these were made in Yugoslavia by the E.I factory with the Philips tooling and sold to Siemens.

These valves have an excellent sound quality with a nice balanced and musical sound which outperforms the modern made items. These come in the Siemens orange and blue box.
