    Here we have some fine and rare vintage tubes. All purchased as NOS and sound fantastic. Just not using so I’d like another audiophile to enjoy these. Tubes of this caliber need to be used! Nothing wrong with any of them. If you are a tube roller you know of the status each of these.

    1. Telefunken Germany 12AT7 ECC81 $40 (No box)

    2. Amperex Holland Bugle Boy rare red tip medical grade 12AU7 ECC82 $75 (original box)
    Very nice specimen with graphic in tact. Super hard to find red tip.

    3. RCA 12AT7 ECC81 rare black plates $35 (original box)
    Often said to be the best USA 12AT7 and getting hard to find.

    Deal at $275 for all. Siemens is gone. $185 for all four remaining.
    PayPal is fine.

    Anybody who has a stock Fender blackface or silverface Bassman amp should be hopping all over that RCA 12AT7, as that is OEM for the phase inverter before the power tubes.

    I'm adding a Brimar CV4034 to this list. Sounds awesome. Best sounding 12AU7 tube I've used so far. The CV4034 is coveted and is the "flying lead" type tube which has a base soldered. For my configuration it isn't quite what I need. But awesome tube that some claim is the only 12AU7 you ever need. $80 shipped CONUS.


    SOLD
