vacuum tubes! - New Flickr Shot

flickr by andrewyang. Trip. I didn't know these were Electro Harmonix and made in Russia.

Update via zerozeroisland in the comments:
"Yes, it's pretty odd. E-H founder Mike Matthews bought a Russian vacuum tube factory back in the 90's, i assume so he could insure a steady supply of tubes for his products.

But he's been having a hell of a time holding on to it. apparently, corrupt Russian businessmen and officials have been trying to take over his factory. it's a pretty fascinating story; you can read more about it here & here "
