Last month I already reported the news about the ELROG tubes. I plan a series of posts with news from the factory floor. And also general news about tube availability.
The production line is in good shape and has been overhauled to get a better vacuum than ever. We are currently producing 845 tubes as well as 300B. Some 211 tubes are still in stock. The photo above shows a 845 with an RF induction coil around it to heat up the interior for de-gassing.

And a sign at the street to mark the way to the company location:

In the meantime price calculations have been done and the distribution scheme has been set up. In order to keep pricing reasonable all sales within the European Union will be direct. I am happy to announce that George Lenz of tubesusa.com continues to represent the Elrog brand in Northern America. We are seeking distributors for other regions but have not come to agreements yet. Any new distributor will be announced. Until further notice sales to all other regions besides USA and Canada will be directly from the factory.
Export prices outside the European Union, including shipping cost per matched pair:
ER300B : 900,- Euros
ER211 and ER845 : 999,- Euros

Stay tuned for updates from the tube factory. I plan to post regularly with photos and videos of the tube making process.
