FWIW there's a company here making 300Bs (and a couple of rect. tubes) but these don't have much to do with guitar amps (i.e. very expensive stuff for the audiophile market) :

p.s. too bad that Blackburn(?) 12AX7 type went out of production

Dai,

Wow nice gear! Still cool to see high quality tubes being made,if only for our purposes :| .
Probably wouldn’t be profitable for a company like this to branch off into the goodies we like…

Then again the way NOS is going up maybe the lines will intersect with certain types?

interesting question. Wonder what will happen to toobs in future?

Here's another Japanese tube maker. More of a boutique/back yard type:

also FWIW, Guyatone has apparently gone out of business as of the last day of last month (JAN 2013).

I think there will be a market for sometime..I hope!
Cool homemade valves :) but what is that racket in the background? just joking opera fans.

Gotta admit looking at those amps makes me want to build one for the living room.

Ah noticed the Tek 576
