Amperex was a long-established manufacturer of transmitting tubes when they were acquired by the Dutch firm, Philips in 1955. Philips used the Amperex name to distribute their new line of Dutch-made miniature tubes, such as 12AX7, 12AU7, 12AT7 to feed the American Market. Classic hi-fi brands such as Marantz, Fisher, and H. H. Scott, Inc., used Amperex valves. Amperex also produced the 6DJ8, 6922 and 7308 frame grid tubes. The 6DJ8/ECC88 was developed by Amperex in 1958 and originally developed for video and radar use, the 6DJ8 also excelled in audio amplifiers. Amperex valves were original equipment parts in many models of Tektronix and Hewlett-Packard test equipment. Although Amperex especially the original "Bugle Boy" series) are now very sought after for their sound quality.
Amperex 85A2 made in Holland and is fully equivalent to OG3, CV449 and 5651. This is a small, special quality voltage stabiliser and was designed to operate in the high shock and vibration applications. These valves were made for long life and were aimed at industrial and military applications.

These were used in some of the Croft range of amplifiers as a voltage regulator.
Very good quality item which comes in the original box.
