    Add to the fact Genalex never made a 12AX7, most of these
    are re-labeled Mullards.

    I'm not looking to start a "museum of tubes". I just want some reasonably priced NOS that sound good in a Marshall. Preferably priced much closer to new stock.
    I can't find them now but I saw a pair of 6L6 that was closer to $5k. Ridiculous.

    Thing i noticed with NOS tubes is you may hear a difference recording in a controlled environment but live gigging run CP tubes, nobody will notice/care.

    Well, I admire the seller's optimism.

    Optimism???? Delusion is a more appropriate term.

    I'm just being nice about it. Christmas spirit and all that happy horseshit, you know?

    It won't be the seller's fault if someone out there actually wants to pay his asking price. I am not my brother's keeper, I'm just the guy standing there with a camera, waiting eagerly to get pictures of him in the act of failing.

    One think that gets me is that my dad was a Radio Ham during the 60's, 70's and 80's.
    I bet he had a s#it ton of useable tubes just lying around in draws and in junk equipment.
    All gone!

    Free market. You can price anything anyway you like. When it's still sitting there for sale 5 years later maybe you'll have learned a few things about economics.
