Tube Store vs Doug's Tubes vs ?

  1. Looking to replace preamp tubes with NOS, was wondering what peoples' experiences were with the various tube sellers.

    I have always had great luck with Doug. When I first started buying from him, he didn't really deal with many bass players, but 8-9 years later, I think he has a number of bass-player customers. It's always worth asking Doug what he might have in stock that's not on the page... :ninja:

    That being said, I would also not hesitate to purchase from the Tube Store. :cool:
  3. Thanks for the recommendation, Tom... just got off the phone and should have some new glass by the end of the week! :D

    As an FYI, for an SVT4PRO he suggested the following (with the goal of tightening up the bottom and bringing in some more thickness / warmth):

    1 - Ruby 12AX7AC5 HG+
    2 - Ruby 12AX7AC5 HG
    3 - Ruby 12AX7AC5 HG
