Well, I recently got in a whole bunch of MG Head tubes in, off eBay and everywhere else. And I realized I only need 8 of 'em. (Two sets of EL84s, two Tung Sol 5751s, two Sylvania 5751s. Why two? They burn out, you know...)

SO, I'm thinking of putting the following up for sale:

- An "Ultimate MG Head" pack, consisting of a Sylvania 3Mica Blackplate 5751 [NOS, to the best of my knowledge, worth >$60 on eBay], two Ei Yugo EL84s[NOS and tested good], and (maybe) a Tung Sol 5751[also worth >$60 on eBay].
<tanfenton called dibs>

-Maybe a quad of GE El84s.

- a SINGLE Sovtek EL84.

- At least two more Ei Yugo EL84s.

- Two Amperex 7025s. <called by timoteus>

- Two Tung Sol 12AX7, one in a "Standard Brand" box. (recently went on eBay for $209/quad, not worth it though) <tanfenton called dibs>

And I've decided to group the following tubes as the "Misc Pack"...<called by Andrew Pielet>

- One Amperex 12AX7

- Two Rayethon 12AX7. (one in a Curtis Matthes box)

- A Sovtek 12AX7.

- Two "unknown" 12AX7s.

- Two RCA 12AX7s

- A TrueTone 12AX7, unopened in box. Looks very old.


Note that this is an INTEREST CHECK ONLY!!! I'm still typing up my review of the tubes, to be posted before I sell 'em.

But you're welcome to post bids...

And I'm going to sell the "Ultimate MG Head" pack LAST.

I call all three of your Tung-Sols if you do decide to sell them.

I'd like to reserve the Amperex 7025 if they come up for sale.

Deleted the Silvertone, one side is dead and the other doesn't work right.

I would like dibs on the Two Rayethon 12AX7, if you so choose to sell. You got a tester? Or are just doing a quick roll so they would still be "new".

I don't have a tester; I'm currently in the process of typing up a review of all of 'em. NONE of the tubes except for one of the Sovtek 12AX7 and the Amperexes are NOS.
