like they say, they ain't making em anymore yet folks still want em
Andy at VTS has the 5AR4's made in the Japanese Matsushita plant set up and tooled by Mullard for in the mid-$60's last I looked. You would be hard pressed to hear a difference between them and the Blackburn Mullard's for three times the price. A boat load of those tubes were sold in the US by Westinghouse and other long gone brands. Just today I rotated one into my Supratek preamp in place of a Blackburn Mullard and can't hear a bit of difference.
This is a long thread, and I want to mention Antique Electronic Supply again:https://www.tubesandmore.com/
Be careful buying "NOS" tubes from them. The ones I received were most definitely well used.
