Default WTB: tubes: 6GM8 ECC86

Hi guys,

I'm sick and tired of being shot down time and time again on fleabay for a set of these tubes. All I want is four of these guys to experiment with, so I'm in a good situation to learn without having to worry about whether B+ is going to kill me or not.

Anyone who has a hoard of these (I know you're out there, somewhere) feel like cutting a guy a deal?

My usual supplier is out of stock too, hmm...

Last time I bought a quad of these, for $4.10 each, I got bugle boys. tubesandmore.com had them, but I checked and they're out.

Every place I've checked is out. Or wants $20 each.

Have you thought about tinkering around with this one?


From what I hear from other folks who have used 'em, they can sound pretty darn good, set up right...

I have quite a few... the usually come as pairs so a matched quad probably not, but 4 or 6 (in unknown condition) are likely doable.
