Squeel Like A Tube

Now that I have my tube amp stable and sounding great I thought I'd indulge in some tube rolling.
Well I pop in this sold to me on ebay as NOS Hytron CBS branded tube... The sporadic sound can only be described as 1,000 fingernails down a chalkboard while 10,000 eagles screeched at their prey. I snapped this photo right before that noise happened. I must have jumped pretty high. Since this was not a success I put the RCA or Sylvania back in and  all was well with the world again.   
Such a pretty tube..
Such scary noises.

NOS 2A3 Stash

When a friend out of the blue starts asking about 2A3 amps I got a little suspicious. Let us call the friend the Tube Hoarder. I was going to call him Collector but he is beyond that at this time. Anyway I was at his place to listen to some tunes when he pulls out this amazing stash of 2A3 NOS tubes in beautiful boxes. I mean the tubes are still in the dam boxes. If they were mine I'm not sure I could open them. Anyway here are some pics of NOS 2A3 tubes in their original boxes unopened..... Sigh..... Wow....
