Anyone know what Orange 12ax7's are?

They just say "Orange ECC83" on them. They're pretty dark-sounding. And I think they have long plates...although I don't know a lot about tubes...they definitely have longer plates than the JJ ECC83s...

I don't know for sure, but listening to interviews recently with Doug Doppler I've heard him say "Before Orange gets the tubes for the amps, they are tested by Ruby Tubes, and then tested again by Orange before they are put in the amp". So I'm guessing Ruby Tubes.
