Wink Where to buy powertube KT88 or 6550C ?

Hallo everybody! This is my first question in this forum. I┤ve tried to buy direct from JJ Electronics in Slovakia and from a russian factory. JJ won┤t sell under 1000 euro and the russian company don┤t answer e-mail at all. Can anybody in US or elsewhere tell me where I can buy powertubes to a reasonable price? I┤d be very grateful for Your answer! Greetings from Stewen in Gothenburg, Sweden. (Kevin O┤Connor from Canada visited us last week. He┤s a specialist in guitaramplifierbuilding)

What's your prob?

Want to buy in quantity?

Are you representing a company? An individual?

Let me know, I'll try to guide you...either way why buy USSR valves through the States?
That alone will add some 9% of import taxes to the bill...

I ordered my JJ KT-88-s from Mr. Losconi. You can check his homepage here

I ordered 12 pcs. of KT88-s, in matched quads, and the difference was less than 2% of the valves!

triode electronics is also recommended. Fast and relatively cheap.
Keep an open mind. It helps.
