Home Tube DIY Asylum

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

RE: Vintage Tubes

New old stock tubes have become prohibitively expensive, in most of the desirable audio types. The non audio tubes sell less because the guys who fix up old prewar radios have been dying.

But are less people building things in general? Well, 10-20 years ago you could buy hobby electronics magazines and stereo magazines at any grocery store. Now? Not so much...
I think less people want a hobby which involves building things these day, it's it to be cultural.
