I bought an Ampeg VL1002 head which was loaded with these preamp tubes which I'm thinking are maybe Ei. They are called Hot Rods, say "SLM Electronics"; "Made in Yugoslavia" and "95-127-01".
Anyone know who the manufacturer is or any info would be appreciated.
Thanks

Yugoslavia would indicate EI as the manufacturer. I could confirm if I could see the plates more clearly.

They're most likely 12AX7s.

Thanks for the help, they are definitely 12ax7's, I was curious about the manufacturer. I guess Ei was/is the only Yugoslavian manufacturer.

Yes, EI is the only Yugo manufacturer.

In general, you can't trust country of origin markings on tubes due to tube fraud/fakes, but no one in his right mind would mark a tube "Yugoslavia" if he wanted to get a higher than market price for it.;)
