This listing is for the pictured single Telefunken EM80 vacuum tube. Also known as 6BR5

This has never been out of it's box! I was tempted to take it out in order to take photos of it for this listing, but I just couldn't bring myself to tear the rivet or cardboard flaps off...which is the only way to get at these vintage Telefunken tubes. Out of all the tubes I've gone through only a few were never out of their box, and I'm figuring there is someone out there who will appreciate this fact as much as I do! If you want to be the first to hold this after the person who put it in it's box all those years ago, get it in your cart. I don't think it will hang around too long at this price.

Vintage tubes are considered by audiophile and musicians to be better than the new tubes on the market today. This sweet, old EM80/6BR5 is the only one I have. I've read that these tubes have a green flurescent glow : http://www.solorb.com/elect/misc/magiceye/ That's pretty cool!

All of our vintage tubes have been stored in our garage in a repairman's tube case since the 1950's - 1960's. We do not have a way of testing them, but given the facts of how well they've been stored, there is no reason to think they won't work as fine as other NOS.

I have lots of other tubes...and am listing them as fast as I can. Feel free to convo me with a request for specific tubes you are looking for.

Well packed in Priority small flat rate box, USPS, within 2 days of purchase.

Thanks for looking!
