RE: Help identifying Shindo nos tubes for Montrachet

Thanks for all the input. Another knowledgeable friend agreed with the opinions here. RTF they are. I had them tested on a B&K dyna-jet tester and they are all good. The one that briefly lit up in the Music Reference RM-9 amp before it's tube fuse blew is just as strong as the others (90), despite what that 1 second did to its appearance. No shorts in any of them.

Given that these are Shindo-supplied tubes, am I right that they were carefully selected and matched? I hear all kinds of things about Shindo's selectivity. Does this impact their value? I imagine the discoloration in the one tube will hurt the value a bit, on the other hand.

So should I ask $50-75 each or is that too low? Unfortunately I paid $500 three months ago for this set, including the input tubes that are probably not worth much.
