Production and delivery of new production tubes in danger according to TAD:
(As of 16 March 2022)
Without a doubt, the current situation on the tube market can be classified as dramatic. In any case, for years, there have been only three noteworthy manufacturers of audio amplifier tubes such as 12AX7 / ECC83, EL84, EL34 and 6L6GC.
In August 2019, the largest manufacturer Shuguang closed its factory in order to move to a larger and more modern location. Unfortunately, the new production facility has not been granted permission for two years now. In the meantime, leading employees have left or have been compensated. This probably means the end of the Shuguang Electron Tube Factory.
The second major manufacturer in Russia, known mainly for the Sovtek, Electro Harmonix, Tung-Sol and Gold-Lion brands, can no longer export tubes since the Russian sanctions came into force.
This leaves only JJ as the smallest of the three big manufacturers. And their delivery time was already up to 18-20 months, even before the Russian sanctions.
My advise: stock up your tubes before other do!

Lelystad, January 10 2022.
New for sale are offered the NOS RFT ECC82's! These are made in East Germany early 1960's. RFT's are known to be quiet and low microphonic so an excellent choice if noise is an issue. Also they sound very good!
3 types of getters are sold:
- First type with solid elliptical disk getter (most early RFT types);
- Second type with large O-getter and thin double support;
- Third type with large O-getter and FAT double support.
As the solid elliptical getter is the most early rare type these are the most expensive. All types come in matched pairs and are in stock for 24 hours shipping!

My name is Wijnand Kuijt, for more than 25 years I have been collecting and selling tubes and classical records. When everybody got 'digital' I started collecting classical records.. I have a catalogue of more then 6200 collectable classical records, I reside in Dronten, The Netherlands and I'm a keen audiophile as you can see on my page with my equipment. I mostly play analog music, no CD's, no hi-res downloads, just analog records. This doesn't mean I don't like 'digital' music, just never got started with digital.
I love tubes and I'm using them with my Jericho 08 hornloudspeakers (105dB). I use the Line Magnetic 219 SET tube amplifier and DIY 2 x 12 watt EL84 pushpull amplifier. To play the vinyl I use the Transrotor Fat Bob with Jelco 9" and TMD and 3 motorunits from Transrotor combined with a Dr. Fuss powersupply. And a restored Thorens TD166 MKII with Rega RB251. Also lots of cartridges like Van den Hul, Audio Technica AT150MLX, AT3mono/LP, Nagaoka MP110, Benz Micro 2,5 mV and a Sumiko Bluepoint Special. All in a 'Phonodude' MK3 phono amplifier with 6X4, 5755 and 6N3P-DR tubes. Wonderful sound!
