Home Tube DIY Asylum

Do It Yourself (DIY) paradise for tube and SET project builders.

RE: Vintage Tubes

I wouldn't expect DIYers to be a huge factor in the overall market. 10-20 years ago, NOS hoarders were hoarding. Nowadays the hoarders have what they want and are largely out of the market. What is available seems to be tainted by suspicions of.....ahhhh.....misrepresentation. Combine all that with the availability of decent new mfg Russian, East European and Chinese parts esp for the types most popular in HiFi and MI apps and NOS looses much of its former sparkle. A big unknown is what the market will do when the heirs of the hoarders need to liquidate the estate.
