I prefer coke bottle, NOS, not necessary NIB, better to be RCA, GE ---American Brand, Please don't tell me to get it from ebay, it's ****!
Thanks a lot.

This site definately is the most specific about options and choices.


These guys have a good inventory of general NOS American tubes. They are also good about returning noisy tubes.


Antique should have some decent NOS 6L6's and 6V6's. They also have the rebranded tubes (if that interests you), and they seem to be the only American company carrying TAD tubes.

I buy every (NOS) tube from Roy Golden at Radio Tube Supply in Ohio.
Very good prices, and nice people to deal with.
