    Picked up a Maggie 9304-10 tube amp over the weekend with all original tubes. The 6eu7's were made in Great Britain so assuming Mullard's but the EL-84's and 5u4's came out of Japan. I was wondering who manufactured those?

    Thanks,

    Probably Matsushita, but possibly Hitachi.

    I had some IEC-branded tubes that turned out to be made by Toshiba and sounded very good. So I guess they might also be a possibility?
