The prices folks are asking for tubes these days are the result, in the most 
part, of dermands by "audiofools" who have driven the prices up.  This is not 
to mention the prices sellers are getting on auction sites and just plain 

The best way to deal with this is not to buy from sellers asking for the sky. 
 Careful prowling through hamfests, classifierd ads in magazines and on the 
internet will yield more reasonable prices.

Late this summer, I found brand new, original box tubes like 6L6s, 12AT7, 
12AU7, 12AX7, 12BY7, 5Y3, 5Rr and many others for from $2.00 to $3.00 each. There 
were NIB 6146s at Dayton for $12.00 each. There are reasonable prices out 
there.  "Let your fingers do the walking." and let these "dealers" wilt on the 

Happy New Year and 73,

John,  W4AWM
