    Hey fellas-

    I have a billm modded Blues Jr in my practice room that sounds really good. But the tubes hang down from the chassis, fighting gravity etc, and they often get loose. There is a spring loaded holder for the EL84s, but the preamp tubes just hang...

    I've tried adjusting the pins as well as the little springs inside the sockets, but ideally I'd like to replace them with some good maybe ceramic tube holders?

    Can this be done relatively easily, without reinventing the wheel? All recommendations are welcome!

    Thanks
