Here are a few sources:

http://www.tejastubes.com/

http://www.fourwater.com/

http://www.tubedepot.com/

http://tubeman.com/catalog.htm

http://www.vintagetubeservices.com/

I have not bought tubes from all of them, but some, and these have been recommended to me by friends.

Steer clear of NOS tubes on Ebay... Those "new in the box" tubes ( in my 2 purchases ) are not neccesarily new.... People seem to think a tube in the box, discovered inside an old radio means it's new... Nope, it's probably where the owner placed the tube he just took out... <-----2 cents

C'mon, guys, don't forget one of our own: genoo
I get all my tubes from him. He's fast, reliable, honest, guarantees every sale and charges more than reasonable prices.

I MUST bring this to the attention of everyone!

I made my mind up to go with

"GENOO"

Since I posted this, I have bought tubes from more than a few of the guys that you all gave me info on and genoo HANDS DOWN is by far the BEST! Strong (and I mean REALLY strong) tubes, fast shipping and Very well packed, and just an all around pleasure to deal with :-)

FINALLY, I have found my tube guru!

Thanks Gene. I just think that in this day and age, when somebody
does it Right, they should be Thanked.

Bravo Mr Kidd, A job well done :-)

Gene is email only, no web site.
But he's a member here and is prompt to communicate.

Gosh, thanks Doc! :oops: I really appreciate the compliments!
My tube guarantee is simple: If you don't like a tube I sold you, return it for a full refund, NO questions asked.

Thank you,
Gene
