VACUUM TUBES AND RELATED EQUIPMENT WE ARE BUYING



This page lists tubes we are BUYING and current bidlist prices we are paying. This is not a page of tubes we have for sale. Did you get to this page by mistake? Return To Vacuum Tubes Main Page

This is a list of vacuum tubes and related tube equipment I am currently buying. It is a long page, use your scroll button and scroll down the page to see it all. These are the tubes I need the most, and I will consider any quantity you have to offer. I mainly need new old stock in original box, but whiteboxed and bulk packed NOS are acceptable too. If I am accepting used tubes, it will be noted in the chart. We must test and evaluate all tubes and equipment prior to accepting them for purchase. This page details the terms of selling tubes to us. By sending us your tubes, it will be mutually understood that you agree to these terms and conditions set forth on this page. Before you read any further, please understand that we are RESELLERS and these are WHOLESALE prices based on our recent purchases from other vendors, and the demand of these tubes in general. If you need retail prices for your tubes, you should not sell to a reseller, but instead list your tubes on eBay or Audiogon. Please read the following information, and then scroll down on this page to see our complete bidlist.

Prices listed are for new old stock (NOS) in their original boxes. If a used tube is accepted, it will generally be priced at approx. one half the price of NOS listed, depending on how the tube tests. Tubes without original boxes are generally considered used, except for some military types and those in bulk trays. Especially fine NOS and used tubes of types in high demand, and very rare tubes, sometimes can be paid at premiums above these listed here, and will be judged on a case-by-case basis. Prices for out-of-production tubes are unstable. Depending on our stock and market conditions, these prices are subject to change without notice! If a brand is listed, the price applies to that brand. Other brands are accepted, but may be at a lesser bid price, or at a "used" price. Tubes may also be downgraded to "used" pricing due to poor or missing labels, manufacturing defects, or late (after 1977) production versions. We suggest you check tubes for country of manufacture, as often listed on the tube itself. Tubes made in China, Russia, Yugoslavia, Japan, or Taiwan are generally not acceptable, or will be downgraded to used rates at best. We suggest you check even premium brands, as production after 1977 was sometimes outsourced to these countries. Tubes made in USA, Great Britain, Germany, Holland, France, Canada, or Australia are usually what we need the most. I will make offers on many other types of tubes as well, but to list them all here would be a waste of time and ultimately confusing. The tubes listed here are the types I need most often, but I am interested in ANY tubes you may have to sell. I am also buying tube testers and vacuum tube equipment. I have brands listed I need the most, but will consider any brand you may have. I believe these are fair, and very competitive wholesale bid prices, and can offer you a much simpler, and far more pleasant selling experience than selling your tubes on eBay or Audiogon. I can also usually meet or beat any bid prices from another vendor who is offering to buy your tubes. PLEASE E-MAIL ME WITH YOUR LIST OF TUBES OR EQUIPMENT YOU HAVE TO SELL BEFORE SENDING ME ANY!

HERE'S HOW TO SELL YOUR TUBES OR EQUIPMENT:

Please e-mail me your tube inventory list first. This is very important, as any tubes we don't need that are sent to us without our approval will have to be returned to you at your expense, or else disposed of here. Please email your tube list as a simple text file or rich text format (.rtf) as my virus checker does not allow e-mailed Word or Excel documents. I will give you shipping instructions. Pack the tubes carefully, with an inch or two of packing material around the tubes. Double boxing large tubes is suggested. I cannot be responsible for any shipping damage or lost packages, so shipping insurance and parcel tracking is recommended! PLEASE include your name and return address on the outside of the parcel and on a note inside. ALWAYS REQUEST A SIGNATURE CONFIRMATION FROM THE POST OFFICE, OR UPS, AND A TRACKING NUMBER SO YOU WILL KNOW WHEN THE PARCEL IS DELIVERED!! IMPORTANT: We cannot be reponsible for any tubes received without identification of the sender. Unidentified parcels of tubes having an incomplete, illegible or missing return address will be held for 30 days. If unclaimed after 30 days, they may be disposed of or sold for storage fees.

IMPORTANT:
  • Please call, FAX, or e-mail us with your list of tubes first.
  • Please include a note packed inside with the tubes when sent indicating your name and full mailing address. Parcels with no identification of the sender are held for 30 days only, then disposed of if unclaimed.
  • We are resellers, and so these are WHOLESALE bid prices. They are as good or better than what you would be offered from any other online reseller.
  • If we have previously agreed to bid prices that differ from this list, you MUST indicate this in your note packed with the tubes!
  • You also must indicate in writing if you wish any rejected tubes returned to you, otherwise rejected tubes are disposed of and NOT returned.
  • Packages should be sent surface, economy, UPS ground, or parcel post. We recommend insurance and tracking services be included, and we will pay those fees.
  • ALWAYS request a delivery confirmation, tracking, or a signature confirmation number so you can track your parcel shipment to us! WE CANNOT be responsible for parcels of tubes lost during shipment to us!
  • I will examine and test the tubes, and cut you a check usually within a week. If we receive heavy volume of tubes this process can take longer. My payment will include economy shipping charges.
  • Please don't send tubes by priority mail or any express or premium shipping method as we will not reimburse shipping beyond that of parcel post, international surface, or UPS ground published prices. Shipping services such as Mailboxes, Etc. charge higher rates than if your package is taken directly to UPS or the post office. We cannot pay these extra shipping charges.
  • We do not pay handling charges of any kind.
  • We are currently VERY busy testing and evaluating incoming tubes. PLEASE, your patience is greatly appreciated!
  • If you wish your rejected tubes returned, your payment check will be packed with them when they are returned to you. The return postage fee will be deducted from your check.
  • Once again, REJECTED TUBES ARE NOT RETURNED UNLESS YOU REQUEST US TO DO SO!


Tubes sent without original boxes or bulk trays (i.e. if sent loose or individually wrapped by you) will be considered used. All NOS tubes and tube boxes must be marked with the tube type and brand and, of course, must correspond with each other. Tubes in boxes with a different tube type listed on the box, or a different brand (example: a GE tube in an RCA box) will be considered used. High demand or rare tubes that are used MAY still be paid at NOS prices depending on condition and test. Any tubes not passing testing or visual inspection will be disposed of. You must indicate in advance, or in a note packaged with the tubes if you want any weak/bad/unacceptable tubes returned to you. We normally throw out bad tubes since packing them for return takes a good deal of time, but we will do it for you if you request them back. We will automatically return any bad tubes if more than 30% of what you sent us does not pass our inspection. Any tubes returned will be sent by surface parcel post and the shipping will be deducted from your check. Our agreement to evaluate your tubes does not imply we will purchase all of them, they must be evaluated and tested first. We reserve the right to return most of, or the entire lot if more than 30 percent of the tubes do not pass our inspection. We also reserve the right to return any tubes that, upon our inspection, prove to be of Russian or Chinese origin, or rare/valuable tubes that may be of questionable origin, even if you have not requested rejected tubes to be returned. The cost of these returns will also be deducted from your check. Don't forget to indicate in an included note if I have spoken with you or e-mailed and quoted you prices that may be different from those on this page! Please do not send tubes until you have received my reply from your e-mailed list! Check this list often, I am continually updating it. I believe these are fair wholesale bid prices. Thanks for your interest!

Questions? Call us at 847-496-4546 from 8 AM until 4 PM, Monday through Friday, USA Central Standard Time. Or, e-mail us.
