    Buying Tubes at a music store

    would you?
    do you always anyway?

    I've just got an impulse/curiousity on trying some new stuff NOW TODAY and don't want to wait for my usual beloved mail order tube testing vendor..WANT NOW.

    These would be Groove Tubes branded.
    Does that make it a little better?
    Yes I probly sound like a SNOB.
    thanks

    After all the good stuff you've tried, it seems strange to be so fascinated by Groove Tubes especially since they're just Sovteks, EIs, JJs, Chinese tubes with GT markings (and price tags) on them. There are a few exceptions like their new "reissue" line, however.

    I'd never buy tubes from a music store,
    I've been in a few and seen them dropped.
    Most don't understand that the glass
    doesn't have to be busted for the tube
    to go bad. Stick to the tube dealers.

    Where do you guys recommend buying tubes? I'm in a location where I'm most likely NOT going to find a store that sells quality tubes.

    Where do you guys that order them order them from?

    KCA NOS Tubes. Call Mike

    I just ordered NOS tubes from him last Sunday. They were delivered Thursday. Packed nicely. Would have been here Wed. But we made a last minute change.
