I'm looking for some dead or tubes that you just think suck 5751/12ax7 size. I'd like to build a shadow box display with tubes in it. I think it would look nice in my "music room". Let me know.

Lextek,

What are you up to? What is a shadow box and why just 12AX7's?

Well a shadow box is like a deep picture frame. The tubes would appear floating in the frame. 12ax7 is a nice size. ECC83 are close too for you Melos owners.

Lextek,

I think you ought to power them tubes up. You'll need a fan in there somewhere but it would be great effect. I got it! What about usiong the twinkle contoller of a set of Christmas lights.

Anyhow, send me your address and I will send them Sovteks back to you.

Man, I shouldn't have ever bought that Melos from you. Lately, besides getting Carlo to mod my amp I have bought a several sets of expenseive tubes and I'm taking nightly clases with Hirsch to learn what to do with them.

Talk soon.



Best
Brian

there's a lot of 8 junky ones at the top; and because some of them probably still work, you could probably light them up too


Thanks. I'm high bidder. Don't get any ideas. It said something about a Raytheon?
