    Hi tube experts! I have a chance to buy a lot of old tubes for a low price...the owner claims that they are all NOS. They are almost all odd tubes though and I have no idea if they are at all useful for anything. I am hoping someone who really speaks the language can give me an idea as to whether or not I should go pick these things up.

    To facilitate, I have posted photos of the COLLECTION

    I'd appreciate any info anyone can offer.

    I don't see anything worthwhile for guitar amps!

    They look like TV tubes. I have purchased lots of these just to get the good amp tubes in the lot. These are not worth much at all.

    Thanks...that's what I suspected. I could see a few 5u4s in there, I think, but not much else. The cases are cool at least.

    If you can get the lot for not that much, I'd take it and trash the TV tubes but keep the tube boxes and tube caddies.

    These have been picked over already. Don't waste your money.
