Imagine they "get damaged" in the post and all you get is broken glass. Which courier will accept its liabilities for those - none.

Sounds like a bloody good scam to me - flog off knackered valves on evilbuy

If you need that amount of power (and you aren't running a radio station) then you're doing something wrong!

Saw an amp with valves that size at John Caswell's one time, in for repair. Came from Poland I think he said, used radio mast transmitter valves.

I never got to hear it but he said he wasn't all that impressed. The transformers on it were quite big, but not nearly as big as I suspect you'd need to light the thing up properly. Heaven knows what sorts of voltages are involved.

Bit small if you ask me. You need a GM100, really, if you're to have any credibility.

I still want to know why there is a screwdriver stuck in the left hand one
You smash it down with your hand, and see if anyone catches the tube by reflex as it sails through the air...
