The following is a list of dealers in the state of Victoria.

Easy enough to phone them and find out, I guess.

All those Ray has listed are in Melbourne.

You may need to tell folks you need a 6BL8 rather than an ECF80.

Same thing but best known by the 6BL8 number in Oz. Should be easy to find. I know I have 30 or 40 on my shelf at home - but I'm not in Melbourne.

Thank you very much for your much appreciated help. What brand are those 6bl8 and are you willing to sell it to me? I live in Singapore currently. Please tell me if you can and the price. Thank you.
