  • Hey Tubeheads ;)

    So I've got the chance to buy a HUGE selection of radio and TV tubes. Guy who was a TV and radio repir guy for many, many years died and his son is cleaning out the basement. Theres some testing equipment and tons of original manuals, etc; I know the TV tubes don't have a lot of value in themselves, but a lot of the radio stuff is in original boxes and seems to be NOS. I'm thinking the manuals and all could have some value, and I guess there's some original cabinets buried under everything too that might have some value. If I manage to score it all I'll post some pics ;) I imagine I'm just going to start ebaying the lot since I don't have any tube gear left myself. If anyone is looking for anything specific let me know. Tons of RCA, Philco, GE, and International tubes.

    Let me know if you have any 6j6. BillnChristy made a few pre amps using these as they are inexpensive...

      Could always use more 12au7s.

      And tube testing equipment for same.
      There's a fine line between gardening and Madness.

              I'd be happy to take a few poor 'lil 7591/7591A or 6L6GC tubes off your hands. Of course everyone else would probably like to do the same! :)
