ECC31, EBC3, HL23DD.
|Shown above is a Mullard TDD4, which is Mullards
equivalent of the MHD4 previously seen. Again two diodes are
included within the envelope. 4v heater with amplification factor of
27. Height of 135mm with B7 base.
||Shown above is a Mullard ECC31. This valve
is notable for having two separate triode sections within the same glass
envelope. International Octal (I.O.) base with heater of 6.3v.
Amplification factors of 32. Height of 105mm.
|Shown above is an EBC3 from Mullard. P
Type side contact base, which seems to have contributed to a lack of focus
again. 95mm height, 6.3v heater and amplification factor of 30.
||Shown above is a Mazda HL23DD. This uses a
Mazda Octal base. 102mm height, amplification factor of 32. The
metalised glass envelope also contains two diodes. Heater voltage of
2v, this valve was designed for battery or portable receivers. Mazda
often sprayed metalised valves designed for battery sets green so they
were easily recognisable.
