Why 60 cheap 12AX7 tubes?

 

Inherited a box of some 150-200 tubes, a wide variety of glass. Even four '80s' but one tested poorly. Might even have a '52' or so. There's a handful of notables I recognize but nuthin' I'd currently use. Most of the collection is pedestrian ham radio offerings.

Totally.

 

The Sriracha were great and the Cheesy Garlic Bread were best.

 I ordered 3 and one has a broken external connector. The other two look like they had never been out of their original box's since they were shipped from the factory!

 

We'll see how they sound over the next few weeks.

 

Do keep us posted, it's one of my fav rectifiers!

Will do. So far so good.

Okay, I can't find any more RK-60s and last month there were more than 40 available at $9 each. Who bought them all?

I'll send Clayton the info, I'm 110% busy for the moment. so maybe he can take over if he's interested.

RK60 prices have already gone up though :blink:

post #5832 of 10694
how much up? i thought they where still considered an obsolete tube/poor mans 596?
post #5833 of 10694

They were very cheap but I think someone is monitoring this thread and realizes the frenzy that Glenn brings about when he discovers an unknown NOS tube. In September 2011, the 596 was $8-$18. Now it's going for $200. The RK-60 was going for $9 around that time as well and now I can't find any. Or at least my original sources are dry. A few months ago before Ultra- really started to post that he preferred the RK-60 over the 596, the RK-60 was in large supply. Now they are hard to find. Someone is hoarding.

Let me know Ckayton, if you are busy and the price is not crazy high. I can buy a brunch and sell it back at cost.

I am pretty busy as well. So why don't you hook up with Ultra- on his sources and see what you can find. I got my supply of RK-60s back in 2011 so I really have what I need. Thanks, though.

 

Ultra-, even though you are running at 110%, make time for beer. ;)
