$156 to ship from Switzerland on an item(s) already bid up to $700 doesn't seem that bad to me. I shipped an $800, 30 lb preamp to Canada once and it cost me almost double that! #-o #-o :-s :-s

Shipping from Switzerland is very expensive. Considering that I have paid $25.00 in shipping for 2 tubes, I'd say his shipping price really isn't bad.

The fact is that shipping from Europe in general is expensive compared to what we are use to here.

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
