    I've bought new, used, and nos valves off ebay and they've all been OK so far, but there are few guarantees....you pay your money, you take your chances!

    Earlier this year I had a big buying spree on Ebay for valves, (ECC83/12AX7/5751 types). Most have been great. The odd couple or so that have been microphonic I sold on for a profit. Like the man says, you pays your money and takes a chance. As long as it doesn't get stupid expensive, go for it and see what happens, but remember: it's a global car boot sale!
