Tesla started production in 1922 under its original name of Radioslavia Ltd in Czechoslovakia. It has a long history of manufacturing high quality transmitting valves and defense equipment. The Tesla factory was known for making some outstanding valves. The Original EL34 better in terms of microphonics and reliability than the famous Mullard EL34, hence Marshall used the Tesla EL34 from the mid 1970’s onwards. The frame grid E83CC was due to its construction the most expensive of it type to produce. Still to this day it is one of the best sounding ECC83/12AX7 types ever made. These are just a few of an endless list of pioneering valves produced by this great Czechoslovakian factory that sadly is no longer with us.
The Tesla ECL805 is an improved version of the ECL85 and these were made at the Zavod Trintec factory and have the factory code of 32 on the glass with the original Tesla Yellow print.

These valves have a very balanced warm sound with plenty of high end detail .This valve has also used in many other audio applications with excellent results and work really well In the Croft super micro amplifiers.
