good as, tell him what amp youve got and what youre after and he should point you in the right direction
thinking shipping is $28US on top of the tubes but usually works out cheaper than here.

otherwise check out freedom audio in ak if you want to source them locally, he just stocks JJ'ss i think.

i thought that was pretty normal for tubes to glow... js'ing

I got a full service and re-tube with Mullard (reissue) EL34's for ~$160 from Clarry at 34 Audio in Titirangi a few years ago. that dude knows his shit so if you're in Ak hit him up.
