Not an auction but still a crackpipe sale price for a 12AX7 from one of the larger online tube seller.

Fucking unbelievable....

That is outrageous.
And you still have to pay $4 more for one that is tested for low noise and microphonics. :lol:

Audiophools-you know the people that buy $300 gold plated interconnects and Pearl Anjou cables for $7,000. :smashed:

When it comes down to it, these are the people that are really driving the market and pricing. It's easy to listen to music but more time consuming to make it, hence the relatively small market of the guitar industry.

Tube prices really have gone crazy in the past couple of years. I cannot believe how much NOS 12AX7s and 6L6s are going for compared to the prices people were asking two years ago. It makes sense since the supplies of NOS tubes are dwindling, but it is still surprising to see the prices.

I wonder what the audiophiles think of guitarists. I would imagine the idea of us burning up 4 NOS 12AX7s in a ratty guitar amp that is going to be hauled to practices and gigs makes their stomachs turn.
:hihi:

Of course we're the ones actually creating music, but if I had to guess I would think most of those guys are exclusively into Classical music.

I love the desperate plea he concludes with! "BECUASE IT IS WIERD AND IM PRETTY CERTAIN THERE ARE SOME MAJOR PENNY COLLECTORS OUT THERE, I COULD USE THE CASH ASWELL,AND DO ALOT OF GOOD THINGS WITH THE MONEY. EVERYWHERE I GO THERE IS BAD PEOPLE THEY SAY IM CRAZY,AND MY PENNY IS WORTH HALF A CENT WHEN I TALK ABOUT IT BUT THEY HAVE NEVER SEEN IT UP CLOSE, SO SOMEONE DO ME A FAVOUR AND HELP ME PROVE TO MYSELF I MADE A GOOD FIND...
