Tubes for sale
09/29/09 at 04:20:59
 
I have decided to sell off some of the vacuum tubes I have collected over the years.  I have several lifetime supplies of driver, rectifier and power tubes and would like to "spread the wealth" a bit .....  

Really, I have an ulterior motive.  I would like to reinvest in more music and possibly some hardware.  After all, Steve will be showing the new DAC at the 'Fest this coming weekend .....  

Here is a LINK to the inventory list.

I will have the tubes at the DecFest.  I don't have a tester, but they all have lots of life left and are some fine sounding old stock gems plus a few other goodies.

All reasonable offers are welcome.

Thanks for looking,

(Tube rich and cash poor) Randy

The general pricing is as follows :
6DJ8, 6922, 7308, etc. - 35.00 each / 50.00 for 2
Rectifiers - 15.00 each except for Mullards and Sophias which are 50.00 each
EL84s - 50.00 per pair
Original Svetlana SV83 (matched pairs) 15.00

Thanks for looking,

I finally got around to updating the tube list with test results and prices.

The Link

A few of the choicest ones are gone, but there are still some very nice tubes for someone wanting to start or build their collection of tasty old stock tubes at "less than online vendor prices" .....  

Would it be too lame to say "get em while they're hot" .....

I can't believe those Sophias lasted as long as they did! I thought both the mesh and the solid plate 274b would have gone in a couple hours! Blame it on the economy?  :-/

I only wish I could've gotten a mesh plate, but I'm looking forward to trying this out on my CSP2.

sberger,

You have a PM .....


Thanks .....


buzz,

I hear that ..... for some reason, all of a sudden the tubes are starting to move.  I have sold a couple of dozen over the past few days.  I am trying to keep the online list up to date, but it's hard to do and still spend any time listening to music .....

I'm still not sure that the some of the folks checking out the list know what they are seeing.  Even though most (if not all) of these tubes are not NOS, they have a bunch of life left in them and will sonically stomp the snot out of most new production tubes.

Some of the prices asked by a few of the online vendors make me think that their tubes are filled with gold dust .....

Take care,

Randy

Hi sll,

I will see if I can find this information and get back to you.

It may take a few days, though.  My son is getting married this weekend and tonight is the "bachelor party", tomorrow is the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner, Saturday is the wedding and Sunday is the "wedding breakfast at the new in-laws home" .....

If I am still functional Sunday night, I will make an attempt to reply to you then .....

Thanks,

Randy

Howdy sll,

I just got back home from the rehearsal dinner ..... and since I had to pay for it, the experience was particularly exhausting .....

Here are photos of the tubes and the boxes :






If you are interested, I will check out the cost to send them to Toronto (M3C1C7) and let you know.

Have a good weekend,

Randy

PS ..... thanks to you and Lon for the congratulations ...... I passed them along to Cathy and Geoffrey .....
