Default 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.
