    Default Ebay: 2 ECC803S (ECC83) Telefunken $1001

    Has anyone heard these 10-50,000 hour tubes? I think I'll try JJ's ECC803S's.

    A couple cases of those found on a shelf in the backroom would be a nice surprise huh?

    Unless you're 69 and senile that's not gonna happen but why not put a ad on craigslist Wanted: Radio tubes... like I see once or twice a week.

    Kevin Deal from Upscale Audio is really into finding rare tubes. Here are some of his adventures on tube trips that are interesting to say the least.

    Kevin is hardcore. I've purchased tubes from him and he's a great guy to deal with. Answered all my e-mails.

    That was actually a very good price. tubedepot.com was selling the same tube for almost $900 a piece when they still had them in stock.

    What I hear from the tube vendors over at audioasylum is "availability and demand" which drive their prices up. Not sure why nobody's remade them but the Ei X7 is a copy of the Tele flat plates.
