hi all, yes very common in states, but not this side of the pond...shipping and customs from USA would probably be a too much, judging from what ebay sellers have listed...if i could get reasonable shipping i would take 1/2 dozen..its for amplifier.

I'd question the wisdom of building something around a part that is difficult to get. You just know what the fates are going to do to you....

Billington have them, though no idea of price. The Tubestore has them in the states and AFAIK customs is prepaid and shipping minimal. Also last time I looked there are no customs charges for stuff under about 600 - https://www.gov.uk/goods-sent-from-abroad . Frank sent me some toobs and there was no customs, he'll sort you out if he can find them, which may take some time.

Customs duty is payable on goods from non EU countries with a value of over 135 and VAT is payable on goods with a value of over 15
