The ECC88 is a VHF double triode with separate cathodes. The ECC88 was designed for service as a cascode amplifier in the front ends of VHF radio receivers. One triode acted as the local oscillator and the other as the mixer (frequency changer).
The stylised logo was introduced in 1970. In this exhibit the glass is marked as Imported - accurate and not pejorative as was the earlier use of Foreign, designed to suggest that British was the best.
The anode has a deep recess. The internal face of the recess is the working face of the anode, the rest of the metal is for support and heat dissipation.
The thin glass tube envelope is 20 mm in diameter and, excluding the B9A base pins, is 47 mm tall.
