Vintage NOS Pila F40T12 CW fluorescent tube

Vintage NOS Pila F40T12 CW fluorescent tube

Click to view full size image

I have two of these NOS Pila CW F40T12 tubes. These have a really eye-pleasing color to them, much like Tungsram CW t12s witch I am in deep love with. I like these tubes, too bad that I only have two of them. They also last exceptionally long time and are very bright. They did not skimp on the production part - these tubes are full mercury and have strong filaments with moderate amounts of emitter. Pila tubes for the win, Tunsgram tubes for the lamp God!
