Default Trade: A box of NOS Tubes, mainly RCA and Tung-Sol for *Anything*

*Will have more details and pictures in a few hours, checking for interest*

I came across a box of Tubes and picked it up at an alright price- there should be at least 20-30 NOS box of audio tubes, mainly consisting of RCA branded ones and Tung-Sol, probably came from an audiophile and the box said "new tubes" on it. There are a few boxes that indicated used ones, but only a few.

I'll make a list of everything in it and a picture, but PLEASE do not ask me "does xxx tube blah blah" cause I really wouldn't know. I can take pictures of any of the tubes in particular to show the condition. I know there are a few expensive big ones in there so I'll get pictures. I DON'T HAVE A TESTER NOR CAN I TEST THESE!

Looking to trade it all as I, personally, can't use any of it with my skill level:
Anything Tubey- I miss my first Modded Art Dac
Power Amplifier
High End Pre-amp with a remote!
Speakers? Custom, I don't care as long as their quality. Heck, I'll even trade it if you can repair my Concept Audio 11 amp! (socal)

Currently I have a simple setup of Pioneer A-35r, okay mission speakers, tube little dot micro headphone amplifier, so anything above these would suffice.

I prefer to just trade it all to one person but if there's huge offers for 1-2 of them (over $30), I'll ship but I rather not.

Let's see what you've got. I'm also in SoCal and might be able to hook you up with some small speakers for these, if it seems a fair value proposition.

Pretty good at repair work, too.

I lied, I'll have pictures around 5 today... I've been a long time lurker here- yearssssss, and I really picked up the lot for you guys (community) in particular, it wasn't an amazing price but figured hard to find tubes- especially NOS RCA and Tung-sol ones would be worthwhile to builders, one that I googled was selling for over $100, but again, not looking to "make" money, just rather put them to good use and hopefully do slight upgrades to my current set up.

I'll take anything, even accessories- from terminated speaker cables, to power conditioning stuff, I'm a simple two channel purist... but wouldn't mind having a setup that'll last me a years and years before needing/wanting to upgrade, since there IS interest, I'll pm you guys when I get the chance with my site of the pics.

Just let me know what you want, and what you want to trade, again, since I'm not a full "hobbyist" or builder, random parts are useless to me but I wouldn't mind spicing up my "wiring."

So any offers like, "wanna trade me x tube, x tube, x tube, x tube for whatever" I'll probably take it. I don't really know the "worth" so I'll let you guys decide accordingly, again, these are sort of useless to me. Heck, if you said: "I'll trade you a complete tube amp for all of them" I'd probably do that too. Making a new thread though with the list in first post.
