Default Techtube valve buy

Anyone interested in going in on a USA group buy? I figure anyone interested can post here and then I'll notify everyone when they're available and we'll go from there. I figured I'd give 'em a call tomorrow (oct 28 2008) to see what's up.

Specify the type and number you're interested in.

The only thing I have that uses 12AX7A where I might want to invest this sort of money is in my ReVox G36..

I'm interested in 4 at most, and that is very dependent on the final price - as is my decision to purchase. (Just trying to be fair, if it is far north of $120 the 4 I probably won't proceed.)

So 4 E813CC with the above proviso. (tentative)

I would be interested in 8 each of the E813CC and E811CC .
Also, with the above proviso, in the kevinkr post #2.

It would seem that "Pricing will be 30 per valve". That shakes out to $48.24 today. It's possible if the dollar gets stronger as the world economy slows down that will go down. I'm hoping if enough folks get on board we can get a price break. Either way we can save on shipping especially if you're in the DC Metro area. I need to start hording bubble wrap.

Availability looks to be end of November, so I would guess early December.

I'll likely only pick up an E811CC, an E812CC and mabey three E813CC's.

That's just a little rich for my tastes.. A lot of money for something that no one has heard. I'll have to wait for a review on 6 moons or similar before I commit that kind of money.. The is comparatively weak to the dollar as it is, (historically it has been much higher, and these days it does not seem to move around that much) I can't imagine it is going to get much cheaper. Oh well..

I expected that we would see something by now. Either they're having problems with the product or they've run out of $$? Oh well.
