How much total for a pair to ship them to US/Canada? Could you please let me know?

I will check the Swedish Royal Postoffice tomorrow. The tubes was something like $5 or 6 when I bought them , so ... $10-12 + postage.

I will check what kind of 6T9 brands I have too, should have 10+ tubes.

Does anyone know a good source for 6T9. Spare Time Gizmo contacted me desperate to source some 6T9. Not sure he ever found them. He said some sites claimed they had them 'till you tried to order them then magically they were out of stock.

Let me know if you come across some tubes. Spare Time Gizmo was also having problems getting tubes.

These are hard to find now. They do pop up on eBay but the typical going rate is $15 to $20 each. Best bet may be to scour old electronic repair shops that are still sitting on old tubes and ham radio swap meets - you might get lucky.

Cheers

I have a few not sure if they are manufacturer matched. I must keep at least one pair as I sold my brother 6T9 amp which he uses daily and loves. So need at least one backup pair. Haven't checked the tubes in years but if anyone is absolutely stuck Ill dig them out and see what can go.
