    Relisted -couldn't edit the old thread! All tubes listed are pictured. Prices include shipping and are OBO. Willing to trade!

    The old USA branded tubes were purchased by me several years ago at Mendelson's, a local liquidation outlet store. They have two tube testers and all tubes tested between 100% and above on both testers. You can see some were once used despite testing excellent. Do I call them NOS? ANOS? Guaranteed not to be DOA.

    Back row left to right:

    Sovtek 12AX7WA - $8. Lightly used in a Valve Jr for between 20 to 50 hours.
    JJ ECC83S (12AX7) - $10. Lightly used in a Valve Jr. Probably less than ten 10 hours on it.
    [del]GE USA longplate 12AX7 x3 - $35 each / $100 set OBO. These are probably the best sounding 12AX7 I've ever come across. Amazing overdrive. i don't know if I want to sell these to be honest.[/del]
    Sylvania USA 12AT7 - $15 OBO.
    National USA 5963 - $15 OBO. Nearly identical to a 12AU7 with lower plate voltage.
    Beckman USA 5963 - $15 OBO.

    Front row left to right:

    Sylvania 6SN7 - $20 OBO.
    [del]EHX 6V6GT (matched pair) - $15 OBO. Bought these for an organ and I never used them. [/del]
    GM Delco USA 6SL7 - $30. Super cool looking tube! Some car/amp junkie like me would love having this in their B-15.


    Left to right:

    USA 6201 (12AT7/ECC81) x3 - $30 OBO / $10 each.
    National 12AV7 - $15 OBO. Like a hotter 12AU7.
    USA labeled 12AV7 - $15 OBO.
    Westinghouse 5963 - $15 OBO. Nearly identical to a 12AU7 with lower plate voltage.
    [del]Lowrey labeled USA 12AU7A - $15 OBO.[/del]


    Groove Tubes GT-6550 Blue Fender matched sextet - $150 OBO. I got them in a trade with another TB'er. Still new. The blue paint means it's in their 1-3 range.


    JJ 4x 12AX7 + 6x 6L6 matched set - $95, same as I paid. Perfect for a Mesa Buster or whatnot.


    There may be more tubes to come. These strings are also FS. (Make an offer.)

    Rotosound RS 666LC 30-125 x2
    Rotosound RS88LD 65-115
    Rotosound SM66 40-100
    Rotosound RS 66LD 45-100
    Rotosound RS 666LD 35-130

    I also have a lot of misc dead strings free, just pay shipping-Roto 66, Circle K, Musician's Choice. Just ask about it.
