how to see if a Mullard 12ax7 reissue is long or short plate
Can anybody help me out how to see if my re-issue mullards are long or short plate ? How do can you tell the differnce? Any special markings ?

The length of the plates themselves, there should be plenty of photographic examples online to allow you to verify this.

Take a look at the Mullard photos on the website. They clearly show the difference between long and short plates.

The reissue (Russian) Mullard 12AX7 is the exact same tube as the Sovtek 12AX7LPS, which are both long plate, with a spiral filament.
