Questions about tubes and gear that glows. FAQ

RE: OK I gotta ask. Why no more 6p3se / 6n3ce for sale other than on Ebay?

Many (most?) of the 1970s and earlier production tubes were not made at Saratov. They were a slightly different tube. Were the tubes you compared Saratov made?

The Foton and other 60s-70s vintage tubes are getting hard to find and pricey. If you check on the 'Bay right now there is a group of 20 NOS Fotons for $500.00!

I'm not saying the Fotons weren't superior, but the Saratov made tubes are the tubes most people have been speaking quite highly of. And the current production is Saratov made as well.
