    Just received these from the Tubestore in Hamilton, Ontario. Complete sets of tubes for my Blues Jr. and 68 Custom Princeton RRI. I thought I'd pick them up just in case....

    To me retubing is always exciting/if not nerve-wrecking.
    It is such a gamble.
    Hope you found the perfectly right tubes for your amps.

    Thanks L&L. I'm not planning to retube any time soon. These are spares for when the inevitable does happen. I used the last two of my 12AX7s in two Vox Valvetronix amps (15W and a 50W with attenuator). The original tubes in these lasted about 10-15 years.
