Hi Guys

I recently picked up a Willsenton R8 and will be bringing in a few more, great amp!!! So far had them paired with my LS50 Meta's and was quite surprised, will be pairing them to some Lintons and Kef R3s soon.

Just wanted to know where do you guys source tubes from ? Would like to do some tube rolling. I know Russia has stopped export on tubes but surely there are other avenues

Locally: I second [member=2759]charles[/member] and you can also try [member=2569]Kent Kassler[/member]

Import: I second Tubedepot https://www.tubedepot.com and also try www.thetubestore.com
I have purchased loads of tubes from eBay. (Most of my tubes actually - I really enjoy looking for gems on eBay)

Not one bad experience from any of the above vendors. (I have a drawer full of tubes)
