Over the next
few weeks (ok MONTHS!) I will
be trimming the
collection as
it is getting
too big. If you
are interested
in any valves
other than CV
and military types
let me know!

New exhibits added 15 April 2015. See also Coming Soon
Stats:2587 valves in the collection, 2148 on the website, 86 coming soon.

Diode -- Triode -- Tetrode -- Beam tetrode -- Pentode -- Hexode -- Heptode -- Octode -- Nonode
Voltage regulator -- Other valve -- Current regulator -- Voltage reference
Thyratron -- Ignitron -- Cathode ray tube -- Camera tube -- Image converter -- Photocell
Photomultiplier -- Tuning indicator -- Display/Indicator -- Counter / selector
Magnetron -- Klystron -- Travelling wave tube -- Backward wave oscillator
Heil tube -- TR cell -- Other microwave -- Trigatron -- Trigger tube/spark gap
Surge arrester -- Relay / switch -- Noise diodes and sources -- Gauge -- Sensor
Light source -- Glow modulator -- Strobotron -- X-ray tube -- GM tube -- Semiconductor diode
