    Didn’t claim they were. Was just letting people know where to get some tubes.

    Dang Russkies, I was on an Audio Research wait list for an ARC quad of Sovtek 6H30pi and they emailed me today. They are now available at $600 for a quad! Insane, I guess I will try the Upscale audio "ARC" tubes.

    Glad I have a nice supply of KT120 on hand. I think I paid 21 dollars a tube a while back.

    I just paid for a pair of Tung Sol KT120's and they are twice as much as what I paid a little more than a year ago for the exact same tubes.

    It's a good thing that I just purchased a Threshold solid state amp and preamp from @engie490 😁 now I can put the Tube amp away until this situation is resolved.

    I've got several sellers of tubes bookmarked on ebay selling original 6550/kt88 tubes. I know its probably a backwards move, could be something to stock just in case if your amp can use them.

    So effectually, everyone's tubes are tied?
