by, even thru japanese sources connected to the us military....
they go for $65 - $80+ in japan.

.... and if you dont speak Japanese and you go through typical USA channels? Try to find some in the US and see how plentiful they are here and what sellers charge.

With this standard, you just put 99% (actually, it's probably 100%) of the people in this country out of business/work, including all doctors, lawyers, mechanics, accountants, etc., etc. One percent? Give me a break. Can we indulge in a little more hyperbole?

Sounds like;

Bendix 2c51 is rare in US.
Bendix 2c51 is not rare in Japan.

Comment from any other market?

Sorry Earl I thought when you said that you wouldn't pay 150 it was not worth that much to anyone. Because of course you are the tube man!
They can deleat all my posts if they want my story is true, and there are at least 3 other times I got smoking mad, ask Makhail my name is Mark Ferris!

What I said doesnt change anything else you encountered. But, he really wasnt price gouging in this instance, IMO.

I am the founder of Team Cheap Tubes .... that is why I did the first tube adapters for my SP amps. There was no way I was going to pay hundreds for 6SN7s with all these other good tubes available. I just cany bring myself to pay big prices for tubes when I can go with substitues for pennies on the dollar.

I truly believe we are all the better because of your love for tube.

I publicly apology for bringing you into this thread, I am sorry.

Also anyone here can do what ever they want with Singlepower, my point was in the 3 years that I delt with singlepower, It was for the most part "fun and informative" to talk to Mikhail, but to actually get anything from them:...man it was a struggle.

I'm sorry, but that is asinine. The idea that even 10% of people in this country behave at the "standards" of Mikhail is pushing it, much less 99%.

The idea that you apparently think we're lynching Mikhail leads me to believe that you're horrified at the idea that your amp has no resale value. Way to attempt to drag the rest of us down with you.

No money back. (I never expected any money back as they were my tubes to start with) I was going to sell the tubes I had left over from my MPX3
6SN7, then I had it made into a slam 5687 tubes and then I had it made into a SE 6BL7 tubes. I wanted to sell them. Mikhail was going to test them for me.

My point was send the tubes to tester get them back with the results!

Your last statment, answer:... He listens. He is a nice guy! Poor business man.

Uh, dude, if you read the post I was referencing, it appears to say that if a person makes a mistake with one person (e.g., a surgeon accidentally cuts off one person's testicles) and doesn't confess it, that means that person is a scumbag and should not be allowed to engage in that occupation. Thus, I was commenting on the 1% error rate (with the assumption that lots of folks make bad mistakes at some time in their life and don't always admit to them). Perhaps I misread the intital post. Or perhaps you did. But I think my post made it clear how I interpreted it.

I don't really care that my amp has no resale value (this is a little bit presumptious, probably reflecting your desires, but whatever), as I have no intention of selling it. I just think that, while it's clear that Mikhail has done some really bad things, and there should be consequences, people are engaging in a lot of hyperbole, and are being extremely judgmental, in certain of the comments. And that fact that you take my comment as indicating that I am worried about my amps resale value -- as if you are some armchair psychiatrist -- sort of demonstrates my point. People are losing perspective and getting quite emotional about all this.

And if you think my opinion is "asinine," so be it.

Fair enough, I think I may have misinterpreted your point, so sorry if I overreacted.

I actually do have a degree in psychology, though.

I am a lawyer. If I were to scam even one client, I would fully expect to be disbarred. The number of clients involved is irrelevant, its what you do that matters...

Large quantities of money does that to people. But then again, so does the ice cream truck coming down the road, on a hot summer night.
