    I need a pair of 6V6's. I know about tube depot but if there's a local option that'd be fine or perhaps even better.

    Thanks.

    Online ordering is probably your best bet. Guitar Center is gonna charge you an arm and a leg for some re-labeled Mesa or Fender tubes.

    I reccomend KCANOStubes - he's a member here. Great selection and service.

    Agree with the KCA NOS Tubes idea, can't beat him. I have bought tubes at Dave's Sound in Whippany, NJ:

    If you're looking for new JJ's, Tung Sol's, Svetlana's, Mesa, Groove Tubes, etc, Rudy's Music amp shop carries a good selection - 30th st. Guitars has JJ's and maybe a couple other brands, if I recall correctly. When I need a tube in a hurry I buy mine at rudy's or Main Drag in Brooklyn.

    I've hung with Dave and Bill Baker for a while when visiting their shop. Great guys and great service.

    Another vote for Dave's Sound.
