I can only say I regret my misspent youth. I could have bought these things for a couple of bucks a pop all day long. I keep hoping I’ll stumble into a warehouse full of classic tubes, cases and cases of pristine goodness.No question that my HXDA will outlive me by many years.
Just gonna say we pretty much think alike...But you have more! In addition, you get bonus points for springing for the Tube Cube.
I feel insecure now.
I mean, what if I live long enough to use all the tubes I'm saving for the future, need more, and can't find good NOS stuff? Will I be forced to dumpster dive as a very old dude, looking for "previously owned" tubes?
"But these test the same as new, Les!"
"Oh sure. But who knows what sockets its pins have been in?"
Oh, and a date with Ksenia Buzina, while I’m dreaming.
