Default My friends in the USA - tube stores in LA

A thread below inspired this quick question.

Apparently no decent tube stores in Washington but I am traveling to LA in a September.

Are there any tube stores (for picking up NOS tubes) in LA that I should visit?

Cheers,

Rob

All these places are in LA county, but are about 30-40min north of downtown LA.

http://www.pentalaboratories.com
http://www.groovetubes.com

I'm unsure if visitors are welcome at groove tubes as it is primarily a manufacturing facility, but the other two places customers can go and shop. Apex has just about anything electronic you can think of. Including many tubes.

Oh, groove tubes are current production. Apex and Penta labs have NOS.

Upscale audio is in Upland, an easy drive from LA (near the 60 fwy, I believe)
