A tube just blew on my stereo. And to be honest, I don't know jack about vacuum tubes.

I have purchased replacements online, because I was unable to find anyone local. But I would REALLY like to find someone locally, as not all tubes are created equal.

Any ideas?

He who must not be named knows about vacuum tubes. Helps Amateur Radio people with them.

I just bought two matched sets of "Groove Tubes" for my '57 100 watt Silvertone Hi-Fi at the guitar store on West Sahara. Sounds groovy now....

I already have the replacement tubes on the way. I'm looking for the person who knows the difference between an Electro-Harmonix tube and a Shugaung tube.

Audio Xperts can GET the tubes, but they don't keep a lot of them in stock. Thank goodness guitar players still use tubes, otherwise the whole industry would likely die out.
