What are new reissue tubes? Ebay is selling new reissue Telefunken Tubes. What are these?


Recommended Posts

Do you mean Viva tubes? They are made in Slovakia apparently. If so not actually Telefunken. Telefunken's are, were, made in Germany. On their site at Ebay. 


"Please note, this is a new production tube, made in Slovakia and NOT an original / vintage Telefunken. These are considered reissues."

Mixed impressions about Viva here:



So far I understand Viva is a dealer and not a maker of tubes. And in the thread link above, some customers disagree with the way Viva uses the definition of NOS.


Regarding those „Telefunken“ tubes. I can't find anything new information about these American Telefunken rebranded tubes that were supposedly made at JJ.
