Recommendation for UK Tube supplier please.

Postby JollyJeweller » 28 Feb 2012 10:58

I'm going to a have a little play about with some tube rolling.
The 12AX7 and 12AU7's in my amp are non branded tubes, and I think I'd like to try some others.
They handle the pre and phono stage in my amp, 4 x AX7 and 3 x AU7.
Any suggestions on brands to look at and UK suppliers?
Thanks.

These people list valves (tubes) depending on what characteristics you want. I don't know how good their analyses are, but they might be useful. https://www.tubeworld.com
I have bought from Watford Valves; they were OK. http://www.watfordvalves.com/home.asp
