Hi,

Can anybody recommend some sites where I could buy vacuum tubes online? Being in Canada, I'd prefer Canadian sites if there are any, otherwise U.S. sites. I did a preliminary google search but I'd like to hear from actual people who bought tubes and were satisfied with them.

I don't think the tubes I need are particularly exotic: 6AU8A and 12BY7A.

Thanks

When I used to purchase tubes, I would purchase them from New Sensor in NYC.
Competitive prices, wide selection and they won't sell you s**t.

A1 Surplus in Etobicoke, outside of Toronto has a million tubes, both new in pack, and used loose ones. He also has a tester for tubes as well...salvaged froma old repair shop...one of those "test yer own" Kiosk type deals.
Call 'em up...they have literally TONS of electronic supplies....they have a website, and the owner name is GLENN.

Thanks to everyone for the tips. Kimbear, I just checked A1's website and it seems to be exactly what I need, so thanks a lot.
