A HIGH-POWER OUTPUT TUBE - THE 250 - 1929

An early article about the 250 from the Westinghouse Lamp Company.  I wonder if Tesla was still working for Westinghouse in 1929?
  
Here are a couple examples of the mighty 50. The first is my fave as the construction is over the top compared to the others which I am sure are great tubes. But you have to admit they look sad by comparison.

  1. Westinghouse had many interesting types. Curtis Schafer wrote an article in 1948 or 1949 which was published in the Audio Anthology 1 or 2. He used the 300B as a final but stated his original preference for the RJ-563 or DRJ-564 Westinghouse types. The price of these at $25 each was, however, prohibitive.

    1. I was not aware of the 563 and 564 tubes. Thanks McStinky I will add them to my research list.
