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 #5843 of 10320
how much up? i thought they where still considered an obsolete tube/poor mans 596?
post #5844 of 10320

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. ;)

Cool, Ultra can you please PM me the info if you don't mind. TIA
post #5848 of 10320

That is a bit of a shame since Glenn has more of a approach to save money for users and he keeps his total cost low. Those "investment hoarders" do not need that many tubes themselves and they still would need adapters to be built for whatever high price amps with high profit margins that can be made if that is their intention.
