Question Who do you buy parts from?

I need to pick up some chokes, filament transformers, and tube sockets. Anyone have any suggestions for buying online that you would recommend?

AES is good:


you might be able to get slightly better deals on some items at other places, but overall they're pretty fair and have good selection..

For Hammond transformers, www.angela.com usually has the best prices I've seen. They don't have an online order system though, so you'll have to fax them your order and CC info, or call.
