In the very early 1950s CBS bought Hytron Labs who was one of the America's leading valve producers. This made the combined CBS Hytron group one of the leading suppliers and manufactures of TV and radio electronics. In the mid 1960 CBS who where hungary for market share bought Fender musician instruments.
These are U.S.A made military Hytron 5Y3WGTA made for the American military. These are very high quality and have become much sought after for their sound quality & reliability.

The 5Y3WGTA were long life military contract valves which were made to the highest standard. These have thick box anode black plates with extra support rods and bottom mica spacers which prevents rattle.

They have the micanol light/dark brown base which was a special heat resistant base that was specified by the military for use in communications equipment.

These valve dates from the mid1950 and due to storage and testing the print and base have some discolouration. These are a really an exceptional 5Y3GT
