Wow! Thanks! I will never look or think of a tube the same way again. Like seeing a baby come into the world.

Goodness

Tool cool. I'd like to know what one of those sounds like. Unfortunately, they cost $9,000 each. But, they come in a nice cherry wooden box.
Now that's what I'm talking about! Take THAT transistor boys!
Here is another one.

thanks!
Absolutely fascinating. But if i never hear "The Man I Love" again, it will be too soon :-)
There is a amplifier manufacturer that makes his own output tubes, pretty good sized ones. He has a short video on his site, but I can't remember the name.

Does this ring a bell with anyone?

Here is a factory tour of Western Electric.

This is the amplifier/tube manufacturer I was thinking of. Nice pictures, but no video.
