$2850 for a pair? That is nothing. Many WE tubes sell for several times that for a pair.

Proof that some people have more money than sense sometimes.No way would I pay $5K for a set of tubes,I'd just make a set of adapters and use some $3 tubes....

Bought a pair of WE 274 tubes at a antique store for $10. They were in the original boxes with test data sheets in each. Sold them instantly on eBay for $500. That paid for my car insurance for 6 months. That was back in 1998 when I first joined eBay.
