Just wondering if anyone has a spare set laying around as I wanted to stick them in a pair of VAC mono blocks and I only have 4, need another 4.

    I have 3 good ones, one bad. Of all the tubes I own the Psvane are the only ones I've had issues with. After contacting Grant Fidelity I have written them off and will never do business with them again. Oops, just struck me that the black bottles weren't Psvane. My bad. Anyway, I have 3 good gray bottles from Psvane.

    PSVane/Shuguang is the same company, so you aren't misspeaking per se. You do want to get these tubes through the proper channels and I'm disheartened you had an issue with Grant Fidelity. I bought my Shuguang monoblocks from them before Ian passed and was happy with the experience.

    Shuguang/PSVane is a major OEM and produce most power tubes in the market, especially for the 845 market. They do make good tubes, but tubes will be tubes.

    Thanks to Jesse's recommendation, I have a quad of these 6ca7 Treasures in my Dodd 50W and they are amazing (wish I had a spare set honestly). At the time, I purchased direct from PSvane fairly reasonably - interesting that now you are automatically directed to the Grant Fidelity site vs the manufacturer site...

    A great tube for sure, I wouldn't part with mine - GLWTS!

    Good Luck With The Search (not sale) - yep, I knew that, I was just musing aloud that you don't seem to be able to buy direct from Shuguang anymore... no intention to derail the thread though - sorry everyone!
