Brand(s): Armor, Burroughs

Armstrong Electric's first brand appears to be 'Burroughs', as referenced in Trade Names: A Compilation of 5000 Trade Names used by Radio & Electrical Manufacturers, Gauge Publishing, New York, 1927.[3]

I find no advertising for a 'Burroughs' tube brand, and was perhaps tied to a Radio line for distribution. Burroughs variant info will be added if confirmation can be made that tubes were braded as such. Burrough Radio Vacuum Tubes listed as made by Armstrong Electric in 5000 Trade Names, pg. 13.


Armstrong Electric's Armor brand appears late in 1929. As more info is found I will update this page. Their CF-501-A uses an unusual number, but is indeed a 1/4amp 201-A tube.
