Default '37' UX5 Triodes

Hi,
Does anyone have a couple of these they could spare ?
I need them for an old circuit where they're being used as class-C oscillators.

If you get stuck on here Langrex's stocklist says they have 359 of them.

Cheers,

Yes, I'd seen those and they're very nice - however, they cost more than I think they're worth..
I don't need brand new matched valves of the same make/shape/print/getter shape - even one good used example would be useful to me, hopefuly with a more acceptable price.

Thanks for that link John, I'm still waiting to hear back from Langrex with a quote.

It would seem that Langrex don't want to sell any of these, as they have not responded to my e-mails..
Does anybody know how long they normally take to send out a quotation ?

Why not just phone them?

01403 785600 - according to their website.

They probably get thousands of pointless emails from all over the world and just bulk delete them all. As a small and very busy business I don't blame them, as I'd probably do the same, otherwise they'd never get anything else done. Phone calls are so much easier and quicker to deal with and it is the 'proper' vintage way to do it anyway!

Update : I was too impatient - I've received a quote from Langrex for two #37 valves at a reasonable price so I've ordered them via telephone and am now sorted.
So - Mods, will you please close this thread.
