Where can I buy these? I've looked around and can't find a price.

Those tubes aren't produced since the 80's...
Good luck finding some !

A pair of them came in an amp I bought, according to the previous owner, they're "new, maybe 40 hours on 'em." I can find the 415's at $250 a pair but not the 416's. I have =C= el34's and 420 6l6's and some cool ax7's I'm going to roll later on in my blue stripe.

They're out there. STR416s are really 6CA7 tubes. Search for 6CA7. The real trick is finding a pair that will suit your amp's idle plate voltage and Mesa fixed bias. Most tubes are not tested at Mesa plate voltages.
