Valve dealers to avoid
« on: June 03, 2014, 08:21:42 PM »
TubeMuseum, eBay trading name,  tubemuseumusa.  This tube seller is one of the worst I have seen. The company's adds are all dresses up with bullsh!t to describe mostly rubbish. Some years ago they where caught out taking standard low performance tubes, then dipping the pins in gold to resell them as high performance gold pin valves. There is an example of there bull sh!t. These siemens tubes are worth about $200-$400. Someone paid US $1,498.00 for this junk.  Mint Genuine in box Telefunken ECC802S go for about US$650. They seem to pray on peoples ignorance to sell there hyped up sh!t. Keep a million miles away from this mob.

Watford valves - UK

Add them to the list of do not buy through, they walk away from dud valves despite saying they are matched.

We all like different things so lets all agree to disagree and if any common ground is found then worship it.  Mine is the KD hence being present on this forum.
