Looks like you have some lovely tubes there @FranZAR , their condition is amazing . I don't know them all , but some are quite rare and valuable .

Very nice examples there.

Can think of some headphones amps using the 6AS7G, 6080.

Any 7236 or 5998 tubes?

Was lucky to recently find a 2 pairs of JAN-7236 Cetron NOS 1983 tubes to make my Woo WA22 sing with more power. The 5998 seem still very expensive and elusive.

I will have a scrounge but I doubt it. Possibly 6SN7 at best.
