Hello all, if you've been following my Curse You thread you know that I have two tubes that I've been loving in my Melos a ton, but recently one has had a very low level intermittent hiss that you can hear when the music isn't playing - heck, that could be the fault of the Melos, not the Tube, but I have no tube tester so I wouldn't know. It's definitely one of the tubes and not both, because I swapped sockets and the hiss started coming out the other channel instead. So you will get one perfectly working legendary tube that fits in any 6922/6DJ8/ECC88/7DJ8/PCC88 socket, and the other you can consider a gift jobby. Plus, I have an eBay replacement coming, one Disk-Getter USA Amperex 7DJ8, and if it doesn't match well with the working A-Frame, then I'll toss that in the mix. Of course if it works well, I might retract this whole deal, which is why this is a IC and not a FS.

THE DEAL AS IT STANDS RIGHT NOW - Since I scored both for $120, I'm interested in letting both go again for SOLD FOR $60 Shipped. That's USA only, Paypal fees included, and delivered via USPS Priority Mail. That's like getting the second A-Frame for free, and yes it still works and sounds great when music plays - it's just that little hiss bothers me. Again, this is an IC, I'm waiting for the replacement tube to come in, but if you convince me before that tube arrives I'll move on the deal.
