Hi guys,

I have substantial collection of old stock 6SL7s and rectifiers. This thread will be dedicated to my bargain tubes. These are tubes that are used, but test well. They do sound good in my amplifter and some look new, however they do not meet my criteria for new either do to testing or because of there looks. All tubes have been tested on my personal Amplitrex AT1000. I spent time speaking with the owner of Amplitrex around the right way to test 6SL7s using the AT1000. His advice was to use the auto bias mode, and that any tube that had values above 70% were testing in the new range. In his experience most new (old stock) 6SL7 tested lower then the traditional 80% and up.

For those who do not know how the AT1000 works, it measures values and then produces results. For the vast majority of tubes new starts at 80% and goes to 120%. Again according the manufacturer of the AT1000, the 6SL7 can be extended down to 70% based on what his has seen in the world. I personally follow the rule of 80% no matter what. You should expect that these tubes have some use on them. As with any vintage vaccuum tube, they come with no warantee and are sold as is with no returns for any reason. They have been tested, they do work and the results are what is on the box. Please ask any questions. Prices do not include paypal and shipping. Please see test results on the tube boxes in the pictures.

These have not been selling, so we will try something new, PM me a list of tubes you want, and an offer. All reasonable offers will be responded to.

Tube List:
2X RCA 5691s
4X RCA Grey Glass 6SL7(a perfect matched pair can be made as well)
1X Sylvania Black Round Plate 6SL7
1x GE 6SL7 Tall Glass Silver Plate
1x GE 6SL7 Shot Glass side getter Silver Plate
1x GE 5AR4 tests new (NOS tests between 5/5 and 7/7)


Minimum order is $50, happy to make deals if multiple tubes are purchased at once.
