    Hi everyone,

    I'm looking for some new tubes for my amp. I need
    5 x 12AX7/ECC83’s, 2 x 12AT7/ECC81’s and 4 x EL84’s.

    I really don't need NOS tubes, but some good ones from the new stock.
    I live in Bryan/College Station, TX, but I can buy something in Dallas, Austin, Houston, or even by the Internet.

    What and where do you recommend?
    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Regards,
    Francisco

    Doug's Tubes.

    Doug has a great selection, tests every tube, ships quickly and stands behind his products.
