Question Help me pick up some good tubes! Urgent!

Hi all,
I can get up to 50 tubes choosing from this list.
Of some I know the available quantity (listed after the part #)
The stars indicate the interest I can have for them based on my limited knowledge.

Can you spot among these some useful tubes for audio?

Cheers

Andrea

ECC82 and ECC88 to start with. Phasesplitters and pre-amp as I understand it.

PL36 and PCL86 are both sweethearts in the correct circuit.

Those would be the ones I'd grab

Seconded.

Also, I would grab those EL504, which make very nice pass tubes, and some PCL84, which is quite universal for SE and PP frontends (pentode section triode strapped) or small PP amps.

This list look like the typical tubes you find in old boxes in radio-tv repairman shops...

However, take: ECC82, ECC85, ECC88, ECL82, EL504, PCL82/84/86, and don't forget about PL36, wonderful in triode mode.
