Does anyone know where I can find a decent selection / variety of tubes local to the Chicago area?

Triode Electronics is on Irving Park Rd. I've never bought there, but they seem to have a decent reputation.

I've made a few purchases at Triode. They have some good stuff....if they can find it. I can't remember the last time I saw a shop in such a shambles! But their prices were good too.

I did well with Triode.

Triode, baby, for sure. I love going in that place, it's always a wreck.

Jim McShane is another REALLY good source.
I have not bought anything from Triode since "Uncle Ned" Carlson left.
Jim has fair prices, but he also has far more experience with high end audio and basically screens his stuff better.

Never been there but have ordered from them. Great service, nice people. Did me right. Mike.
Triode has been very good to me!
