Has anybody seen the 12AX7 buying frenzy from this seller: payson_salvage . Here is an example: http://www.ebay.com/itm/160787075883?ss ... fresh=true
. He is selling 35 lots most 10, 15, or 20 tubes. About 32 of the lots end within a half hour of each other.
I E-mailed him and he stopped two of the lots and made them end later. He bought a Wurlitzer dealer that was going out of business (he said).
I needed one 12AX7, so I paid $15 for two with free shipping. Now I found 3 in an old TEK scope I had.
Edit: I think I was mistaken about the two lots that were removed and dated later. I couldn't find them. In the first batch he sold 639 tubes for $6542.36. One batch of 10 sold for $452.. Thats $45.20 per tube. Now he has listed about 45 more lots.
