gu-29 tube
 
Hi guys, I am wanting to get some gu-29 tubes, or equivalents. Anyone know anything about these old Russian tubes. Anyone making current versions?

Thanks:)

GU29 is equivalent to 829B. I'm pretty sure nobody makes these anymore, but the NOS supply is fairly large.

Search for 829B. This tube has been discussed quite a bit.

no one makes them anymore, but there are tons, russian and domestic.

there are a lot of ca. 1980 "JAN RCA" 829Bs floating around... i figure one last run for the mil before they scrapped the tooling.

Thanks guys, , I couldn't seem to find much about them without the 829 info.

Looks like they took an 829B and squashed it huh?
