See if you can hook up with these dude!!!

These are real NOS Mullards! They're just re-labeled.

So are these:

The real name on these are Zaerix. They were common re-labelers, so was National.

Most people don't trust re-labeled tubes, but they are 100% legit. These are Mullard tubes. And the Nationals are 100% guaranteed. If you can pick up a pair for $60- $70, it would totally be worth it.

Give it a shot man. Don't give up on NOS just yet. There aren't any modern production tubes that can compare to these.

If you really feel like you would rather go with modern el34s, go here:

Call Doug, or e-mail him, and ask hime what would be bestfor your Vox. Our amps are two different animals, but Doug should have sound advice for you.

DO NOT ask him about preamp tubes. He'll just try to sell you on some modern preamp tubes, and they suck. They all suck. If you feel like Mullard ecc83s are too much money, you can always get some Matsushitas. They're dirt cheap, and still kick ass. I can think of about 30 different NOS tubes that kick the sh*t out of all modern preamp tubes.
