Price check: a package of 50 silicone o-rings of the right size runs about $10 from McMaster-Carr. Let's see, if I call them "Ponn-Fahr Tube Damping Rings" and create a nice line of BS, I should be able to get $5 apiece.
Isn't that your average business calc.?

The short answer, yes this can help.

The longer one: if you want to kill two birds with one stone use Pearl Tube Coolers.

The longest short answer: roll your own or avoid microphonic tubes/circuits in the first place and avoid excessive dissipation.

Your pick,
