Brand(s): Detectron


Detectron brand tubes prove to be very difficult to identify.  It is likely that the detectron crystals were made by the same manufacturer, though we may never know. I supect that most if not all early cylinder plate, pear shaped tubes come from the same true manufacturer.

Detectron Sales Co. briefly advertised their 'Detectron' radio crystal. It was featured along-side the introduction of Royaltron tubes.

Was there a connection between Detectron tubes and Royal Mfg? Was there even a connection between Detectron Sales Co. and Detectron tubes? No trademark registrations have been found.

I would love to hear from anyone with more information on this tube/maker.
