Small triodes: Bright and Dull emitters for radio enthusiasts
The valves listed in this section belong to the so-called Vintage Years circa 1915-1930. Bright emitters refer to those valves whose filament glow bright orange at a temperature of around 2300-2600 K. The first valve of this kind was made in France and is familiarly known as "R" type. The dull emitter instead has thoriated tungsten filament working at 1700-1800 K, lower temperature then compared to the tungsten filament of the bright emitter.
