The prices you see listed are average prices for these tubes on the Web. I’m selling for half those prices. Some, I’ve listed without prices: I am still researching prices for these.

I will test each tube before selling. If I sell a pair as matched, they will be internally identical. (Though pairs might be labeled differently, often they were manufactured by one company and merely “branded” differently.) I will also try to match pairs as closely as possible, generally to within about five tics.

I have more tubes, and some are premium. Ask for any you don’t see. Call with questions: 301 445-1243

Are these all NOS? If they're used, it looks like you're getting your prices from tubeworld.com, who charge about triple what everyone else does.
