EL34 Teonex identification

How can you get a great tone without a good understanding of what makes your amp tick? — EL34, EL84, 6L6, KT66, KT88, 12AX7, 12AT7, 12AU7, EF86, Output Transformers, Power Transformers, Capacitors, Resistors and everything else that it takes to make a tube amp sing!

Anecdotally, those mica "fins" are similar to ones on some counterfeit labeled, badly made Russian 6L6's I've seen.

No direct experience with EL34's like that, sorry...

They look very much like old Chinese tubes from the '80s or '90s.
