Home Tube DIY Asylum

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

It's Just the Cost

Many people DIY because it's less expensive. The cost of NOS has skyrocketed over the last few years. I think it's also reasonable to say reliability has gone down, simply due to the better examples being culled out. Many of the tubes sold now were discarded by previous owners as being microphonic, unbalanced (twins), gassy, etc.

Buy Chinese. Bury freedom.
