Would appreciate a pointer to a good shop. Thanks!
I've had good dealings with Mike at KCA. http://kcanostubes.com/
+1 for KCA
If you like NOS, talk to Mike
If you like hand selected JJs, talk to Bob
If you like green eggs and ham, talk to that German guy
Keep an eye on e-bay for sellers with good feedback as well.I just picked up a great quad of RCA NOS 6L6 blackplates for $400.00 and another pair for $189.00. This compares very favorably to the $400.00 a PAIR some people are charging. Only buy tubes from e-bay sellers with good feedback of course. KCA is good too as is Brent Jesse recording and Doug's tubes.I am sure there are others but I do like to troll the Bay as well.Also just snagged a nice NOS Telefunken 12AX7 smooth plate for $56.00................
Doug at Doug's Tubes worked with me and was very helpful when I was searching for some not so noisy EF86 tubes. Very good customer service.
Thanks! Just placed my order for a 5879 and a 12AY7.
Great choice. Mike's very knowledgeable and ships immediately.
all with good results. But lately I've been ordering from tubesandmore.com, because they are in Tempe and I'm in Tucson. Yes I have to pay sales tax, But I get my tubes usually the next day with Priority Mail.
Want to sell half of the quad of blackplates? You beat me to them!
I've also heard good things about thetubestore . They are in Ontario.
Another vote for KCA
+1,000,000 for Doug Preston at www.dougstubes.com
Great guy. Excellent customer service. Stands behind his products. Well-tested tubes. Very fair shipping charges. Doug's a good cat.
I have complete confidence when dealing with Doug at Doug's Tubes. http://www.dougstubes.com
