|HALF PRICE TUBES
Half Price Tubes has over 3
Million vacuum tubes. This website is dedicated to helping
people obtain old premium tubes at a highly discounted price so that
they can maintain their equipment or experiment with vacuum tubes.
The regular selling price of the tubes is averaged from multiple tube
vendor prices on the web and averaged so we are using competitive web prices then
we give you a
50% discount off of these already competitive prices. We need
to shrink this small mountain of vacuum tubes and think that by giving
you a super bargain that perhaps this mountain will start to shrink down
to a more manageable height.
RESTRICTED TO ONLY A FEW OF EACH TYPE, THIS WAY WE CAN OFFER TUBES TO
MANY COLLECTORS INSTEAD OF JUST A FEW. IF YOU NEED MORE THAN 2 OF
A TYPE, PLEASE EMAIL OR CALL US FIRST BEFORE ORDERING. THERE IS A MINIMUM
ORDER (AFTER DISCOUNT) OF $ 10.00US PLUS ORDER PROCESSING AND SHIPPING
This massive collection of receiving and transmitting vacuum tubes came
from a single estate from a gentlemen who spent most of his life
collecting tubes. This mountain of vacuum tubes consists of tubes
in varying physical conditions. Some are apparently new old stock
tubes, some are tubes in boxes that may not match the tube type to the
box label, some are tubes without boxes, and some are tubes that were in
original equipment manufacturer's (OEM) egg-crate containers that were
stacked 144 tubes to a layer. Some tubes are in original boxes
that were deteriorating and when opened, the boxes simply crumbled into
pieces and some were just stored in boxes or metal cans. Some are
dirty, but most are clean. For the dirty ones, a little alchohol
will clean them like new. 99.99% of these tubes are USA or
European made tubes. We do not stock Far East or Russian made
tubes, and we test all tubes to insure that they are good tubes before
We are providing a secure manually entered ordering system for making your
orders. The picture below is but one pallet of tubes of the
thousands that contain this collection of vacuum tubes.

We are selling our tubes by the tube type/number, not by brand name.
The tubes were indexed by tube type, (ie 12AX7), not by RCA 12AX7 or
Amperex 12AX7 or the like. Because we have so many tubes, it takes
several days just to pull the orders before packing and shipping them.
So expect processing time to be about 5 days before your tubes are
shipped or put in the mail.
Tubes are shipped by first class mail for both domestic and
international orders. Priority mail and Tracking upgrades may be done at extra
cost. A 1 lb. shipment in the USA costs $ 6.00 via priority mail.
This can cost upwards of $ 25 for international postage for the same
weight. There is a $ 5.00 per order processing fee no matter how
many tubes are ordered on the same order. Because of the low cost
of the tubes, this processing fee pays for the time to pull
the tubes as well as to offset the labor cost of packing and for
packing materials. Because of the nature of vacuum tubes and their age
(tubes haven't been made for almost 40 years), there are no returns for all the obvious reasons. We accept cash, checks and money orders for payment
as well as all the major credit cards of American Express, Discover,
Mastercard and Visa. We can also take PayPal payments. All
orders are subject to prior sale and availability. If out of stock, we
will delete those that we don't have from the order and process the balance
that we can ship. Click the
