Great tube site, lots of information covered here. It has some fun reading if you're the interested in tube amps, or just tubes in general.

www.eurotubes.com


I ordered a quad of matched EL84's for my Peavey Classic 30 together with a Weber attenuator, been chatting a bit with Eddie on e-mail about pulling tubes in my other 100w amp and some about the tubes I had ordered and he's always prompt on replying the same day, helped me a lot. Teriffic guy and teriffic service. biggrin.gif


And I saw there are complete retube kits to get, makes sence to order a full retube kit every second or third time when chaning the powertubes.

Confused.
Eurotubes imply it's in Europe but prices are given in dollars.
I ordered my Weber from Weber and it ended up pretty expensive with shipping and taxes.
Weber was very nice dealing with too, assembled on order, swift delivery.

So what I'm getting at: What did it all end up to? Have I paid to much?

/edit: NVM, I found it. Milwaukie Oregon.

On the matched quad of JJ EL84 tubes for $38, incl the $26 shipping I saved about $30. The Attenuator added to the shipping up to $49 though and so did customs tax dry.gif But that doesn't matter, can't get one of those here anyway. So counting the tubes alone = a bargain!


And, I rather shop from a tube professional than being a "dumb" customer at the local shop. tongue.gif

There's a link on the site but for your convenience, click here. His wife on vocals I believe. Not bad.

You mean bad I assume? I think it's a pretty nice tone. Not necessarily 'smooth' or anything, but a nice tone nonetheless. As Mickem says, reminds me a bit of heart, I hear some sabbath and deep purple in it...

Thanks. You answered what I really wanted to know without asking. If you had found someplace to buy the Weber's without doubling the price with the shipping and tax. The tax alone was a nasty surprise sad.gif

Well, anyhow. I don't feel stupid now, knowing it was as expensive to you biggrin.gif

The great thing about Eurotubes is you can also buy the high gain matched sets as well. Great guy to work with and very informative. I also bought a Weber Silver Bell from him as well all for my Valveking 50W 1x12. It sounds pretty amazing for what I think is a low cost combo amp. The amp new was around $400USD and another $200 for the tubes and speaker. I can't find that anything that compares to this amp in this price range.
