Default 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.

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?
