There are only 3 major manufacturers of vacuum tubes in production today that are available for electric guitar and bass amplifiers. Many other companies "relabel" these tubes with their own logo, but a few of them like Tube Amp Doctor, ARS, and Mesa Boogie do extensive testing and matching before boxing and shipping to the customer.
1. The JJ/Tesla plant founded in Czechoslovakia, has been around since the 1920's but are now building in the Slovak Republic.
2. The Xpo-pul plant in Saratov, Russia, builds for Mike Matthews, CEO of Electro Harmonix. He has the rights to Sovtek, Tung-Sol, Genelux, Electro Harmonix, Svetlana, and Mullard.
3. The Shuguang, China plant known as Sino/China, builds the Valve Art, Golden Dragon, and Sino/China etc. tubes. Their quality control has really gotten much better these days and many large manufacturing amplifier companies install these tubes in their amplifiers.
*** The JSC., or Winged C plant ceased operations in January 2014. They really made fantastic tubes, but it appears that this facility has been reallocated and will no longer be in the vacuum tube busines. ***
