6AS7 getting rare?
 
I just checked the prices for 6AS7s, and just a few years ago they were around 20 bucks each, now over 70!!!
Anyone know if these tubes are out of production for good?

On what planet did you check the prices? That's way high.


edit: and yes, they are out of production, probably since 30 years stateside, and 20 in RU.

When I was trying to sell some, I couldn't give the darn things away.

What stoner is selling so high? :confused:

Cheers!

Pretty much my experience when I unloaded the 24 or so I had on hand a few years ago.. (same brand and lot #) I got < $4 a tube if memory serves on eBay..

Does Svetlana no longer make this tube either?

Do you have a link? I don't know this shop.



Wow! I have a matched pair of 6AS7G RCA and pair of 6080 GEC made in 1960's. Both are perfect and new in box. How much are they worth?
