    I have 6 old Magnavox 7027A tubes for sale. I bought them back when I had an Ampeg V4 amp, to have a ready spares. I never needed them and I sold that amp almost 2 years ago. I don't foresee ever getting another, so I may as well quit hoarding these tubes.

    When my amp was first being serviced, I had my amp guy test these tubes to identify me a matched quad, if possible. My amp guy, at the time, was Skip Simmons (http://www.skipsimmonsamps.com/), out in CA. He is awesome with vintage amps. He tested all 6 and wrote on the tops of each one what they tested at. 5 of them are labelled "110" and one is labelled "105". Obviously, 5 of them are perfectly matched. Whether you consider 105 to be close enough is your call. Personally, I don't know enough about these things to say how good a match that is.

    Let me be perfectly clear: As far as I know, these tubes are used. I did not buy them all together. None of them were sold to me as NOS and none came in original boxes. But, also as far as I know, they are good, strong tubes, ready to go.

    If you have an old Ampeg V4 or V4B, these would be a perfect set of power tubes plus 1 for-sure spare to just drop in and 1 that would probably be fine to drop in, if needed.

    I think they are probably worth $150 for the set. I looked on eBay and it seems these are hard to find. Coincidentally, $150 is what I just paid for a new set of tubes for my B-15R, which is what made me think to dig these out and put 'em up for sale. I am no vintage tube expert, but I know enough to know that there are tubes that look the same to me, yet people will pay twice as much for one as the other because it has a black plate or a red base or two halos or whatever. So, if I am completely out of touch with reality on my asking price, please send me a PM and explain it to me. OTOH, if this really is a good price, feel free to reply in this thread and say "Wow! That's an awesome price! Someone should grab these, quick!" :D

    I know there's a V4 or V4B out there somewhere that would sound a lot better with these tubes... :)

    I would love to put these in my Peavey VB-3 and do some very nasty things. But alas, I no longer live in the USA.
    Somebody buy this great deal.

    I don't know who moved this thread, but thanks! I realized much too late that I probably should put it here instead of in Amps. I was contemplating figuring who to ask about getting it moved. Now I don't have to!

    Since I'm trying to sell a couple of basses, I may as well mention that these are still available, too.
