Not available in Colorado, which is a bummer because it's Awesome! . My wife's sister brings me a few cases every time they come out for a visit. This time I got Amber, Pale Ale, Oberon, Kalamazoo Stout, Java Stout, and Porter. They're visiting again this month, so I'm requesteing some Best Brown, Third Coast Old Ale, more Amber, more Oberon and Expedition Stout if it's available.

Sorry for the thread Hijack Dave. How much was retail on Vacuum tubes that haven't been manufactured in decades anyway?

Hijack? Please, this is a thread about nothing. :-)

Good used and NOS (New, Old Stock) tubes can be very expensive, particularly certain 12AX7, 6L6, 12AT7, 2A3, 6V6GT, EL34 if they come from RCA, Telefunken, Raytheon, Mullard, GE, Sylvania, Philips. A Telefunken 12AX7 will usually pull in $40 in nice shape and people will pay $150 for an old European (e.g. Dutch, English) or American EL34. If these are new in their boxes, they'll easily go $50+ and $200+ each. Most pre-amps have four 12AX7 and a power amp typically two 6L6 or EL34 per channel...

Thing is even good solid state transistors can be expensive, too. It's not just old tubes. A set of NOS Lambda 15K100/16K100 or Motorola MJ11015/MJ11016 BJTs can be just as expensive. These are 15+ years out of production and there is just as little call for replacements they might as well be tubes. Ironically some of the best places to find good heavy duty transistors is blower motor controls in old cars and trucks. Everything now is FETs, but back in the 1970 and 1980s more than a few higher end cars used BJTs (with HUGE heatsinks!) to continuously control motor speeds.

Theres nothing like the warm, orange glow from a pair of 8163s driving the 2,000 watt linear on a cold, winters night. Tubes rule!
