That's a nice collection and I recognize some of them. I have a small collection of big bottles myself. Perhaps the rarest is an Eimac 4-750A tetrode. A prototype that was never produced. The only other one I know of is owned by a friend in upstate New York. My biggest, a 24" tall triode type E4000/10,000 (sorry, no camera at the moment)

I found this site looking for a pair, or just one, RS607 tubes. Like hens teeth.

Was thinking the same thing about earthquakes...!
Or for that matter, just one inadvertent nudge. Likely his Great Dane lives in *another* room.

I like the spring mounted tube in its shipping container!

Interesting. The guy is a member of the Tube Collectors Association. Who'd have thought?
