I think collectors of things have a mindset much more akin to gamblers than consumer minded people. And are thus prone more to outrageous outlay's of income just to get their "fix". Like a gambler's, just one more play. TubeDepot can sit on these baubles for as long as they want for maybe, just maybe, some needy collector has to have this rarity. Or, they'll put them up for auction some day if no one bites. Either way, who the hell would collect these things? But, people do. For my amps, each using 16 output tubes, (6c19pi) I've had to shop far away, to the mother country, the Russian Federation to get reasonably priced replacements. Fortunately, the amps do not devour output tubes like other otl designs. I'm still on the original tube set.
