In my latest restoration, I found this 35Z5, and I've never heard of this brand before. I'm sure this company didn't make their own tubes, but do you know who did, or where they may have been sold?

Shield tubes were rebranded tubes sold by Olson Electronics.

I think a lot of those Shield branded tubes were Japanese made.
