    Good morning, all!

    I need to retube a few amps and am looking for a good supplier of tubes. I’ve read some threads on TB about poorly matched tubes and am looking for a reputable, reliable supplier. I know Mesa tubes are reliable and come with a 6 month warranty. I’ll probably retube my Boogie with them, but I’d like to get something else for other amps. Any thoughts or suggestions?
     
  2. I’ve used The Tube Store for decades now with complete satisfaction.

    Whatever tubes you go with, run them in your amps so if any issues develop, they can be exchanged under warranty.

    I like The Tube Store and Antique Electronics Supply. Yes, buy the Mesa tubes.

    Thanks for the input, everyone. I have bought from The Tube Store, Tube Depot, and Antique Electronics Supply in the past. I’ll probably order my non-Mesa tubes from The Tube Store.
