Default EL34 SED Winged C with Black Prints & Logo: fake or original??


Recently I purchased a match quad of EL34 SED Winged C
They arrived, but the logo and all the prints are black, not gold.
The seller told me that in the last 2-3 years the prints are black, not more gold.

Tha's correct??
Recent production of SED Winged C (EL34) has black prints???
OR ARE FAKE??? and only tubes with gold prints are originale SED C from Pietroburgo

Did you buy them from a reputable source?
Your other thread suggests tubesandmore.

Did you check google?, lot's of these tubes appear with black silk screen.

Maybe an image would be useful?

Are they fake? I don't know.
Like Marco said, research into what the internal structure should look like.

Different sellers are reffered that are the same tubes, both with gold prints and with black prints and more gold in the past for the american market......are also reporting that for european market in the last period only black prints tubes sed c are available and very few tubes.

I don't know......but maybe
If you look at european sellers you'll find black label sed c.
