Looking for tubes

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know of a reliable dealer on the net, or in Illinois, or Iowa, USA that sells the Ken-Rad VT-231 driver tube, or the RCA 6AS7G power tube. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Thanks for the information Tuberoller. If they have either one of them please let me know. You people in the big city got it made. There is nothing where I live.

The Ken-Rad VT-231 or 6SN7 is becoming a rare bird. You can get them on Ebay from tubemanaus. These are from Australian military NOS. He usually sells a pair of these every couple of weeks and has a good supply. I bought a pair of Ken-Rad VT-231 and Sylvania VT-231 from him about six months ago and highly recommend him. I'll try and find a link for you with his contact information.

Here is a recently completed auction. I would try and sidestep the auction thing and see if he would sell to you directly. I think his minimum bid lately has been about $89.00 for these. Other brands of this tube can be bought here in the U.S. for less, but if you have your heart set on Ken-Rads and don't want to mess with questionable used tubes, he has the good stuff.

Sure- On the ebay link just click on "tubemanaus" or click on "ask seller a question". I have deleted my old emails so I'm not sure but I think his name is Neville Keatly. The price might seem high but a year from now it will seem cheap. I need some backup pairs or I'll run the risk of kicking myself later. He has been selling Ken-Rad, Sylvania, and RCA VT-231's circa 1944-1945 and 1952 Sylvania VT-231's.
