Cifte were a French manufacture of valves Compagnie Industrielle Française des Tubes Electroniques aka "CIFTE". The valves were of very high quality due to excellent quality control.
These are the Original Cifte French military 5Y3GB rectifier that date from March 1963.
These have the famous 1950’s ST style shoulder shape bottle which is fatter than the small bottle 5Y3GT. These are identical to the Mazda 5Y3GB and built to the same military specification.

The 5Y3GB is 4 inches tall by 1.75 inch wide a 5Y3GT is 2.5 inches tall by 1.5 inch wide by comparison.

These 5Y3GB are one of our most popular rectifiers as not only do they have a striking visual appearance but offer superb performance and headroom.

Customers tell us of improved performance over the GT types; this may be due to the larger glass envelope, larger anode plates and bigger internal vacuum.

The anode has a black grey coating and has and internal strut support. This valve in both audio and guitar applications offer superb performance and headroom. The valve comes in the original Cifte military box.

We have only a handful of these so they are on a special low price.
