The tube is heavy if you compare it to the one Alto i have in my collection. All soviet tubes have a fairly thick glass, but the U tubes for some reason have even thicker glass. Interesting

New lighting technologies is a pity fest everywhere you look. From LEDs that last only for two months, to a never-ending global starvation of t8 fluorescent tubes.
We shall reinforce ourselves with good old full mercury t12s and HIDs made to surpass one's life, and give them all the middle finger ;

Thick glass and double coil filaments too, caked in emitter so very long life. I really like soviet tubes, there is just something about them that makes them look nice and vintage
