Let's pray that the forces of good, if they exist in Russia, somehow put a stop to this!

I guess I didn't realize that only three companies in the world manufactured tubes. I realize that guitar tube amps or audiophile amps, preamps, etc are products used by a minority of the population, but it seems that would be an open market that could be filled by someone industrious or by an existing high end company.
Sovtech, Sveltana, Ei, (the Chineese), Tesla-JJ, Western Electric, KR Enterprises, Philips, and the list goes on.
It would be as loss but this will not justify and attempt by toob theives, er salesmen to ramp the price up again. Toobs are already at the critical price point.
As SS catches the sound of toobs without the hassle of bias and burn-out the justification for toob usage is starting to wane. And yes I still use toobs.
