Curt says on his website that Barco 1200s can come with either Sony or MEC tubes. Can anyone tell by looking at the electron gun (I guess that's what you call it) in this photo which tubes I have? Or tell me how to tell the difference? Thanks!
The bell is not visible without removing the tube. The front of a 1200 chassis is like a box. The tube faces are on the front of the box and the tube necks stick out the back side thru holes in the box.
The focus wire is a give-away, but looking at the CRT's fosfor surface should also make it clear. MEC tubes fosfor look somewhat like the sea surface and SONY tubes have a flat and clear fosfor surface.
