Just ask away, I'm sure people will answer...

What you want to buy depends on your market perspectives...

Former USSR export tubes are usually of better quality compared to what you may find locally.

I usually bought through agencies in the Soviet Union and quality was not bad at all...

Cheers,

Oh, I certainly won't consider myself an expert...Experienced maybe...

There's little point in importing tubes you have no use for, so what do you want to do with them?

Cheers,

Build a pre and a power tube amp. Hence the question about what amp and pre to build and wich tubes to get for such.

Sure...That's still pretty vague though.

Preamp: Linelevel only?

Poweramp: How many Watts do you need? SE or PP? Class of operation, etc.

It's not a simple yes or no game as you may notice...

Cheers,

Errr...pretty much the breastline of that avatar you're displaying....

Flamin' hormones...Excuse.

By linelevel is meant a CD or equivalent source not really requireing amplification even a lot of people use some.

Think low mu, low Zout tubes acting as semi-buffers to the amp.

That's a huge raft of tubes from triodes to pentodes...

Any preference for directly heated triodes or whatever?

Cheers,
