Don't buy NOS tubes there are a million reasons not , but the best is that it leaves more for me. I do in fact use NOS or old stock tubes but ir is very hard predicticting how they will sound in you system not to mention the less than great tubes circulating. Some high end tuybe suppliers may be able to help. I lmow at one point Andy's vintyage tube services retubed Aesthetix models. You may want to check with him. Some recent production tubes are really sounding quite good and are guarunteed, you may want to get a buch and see what appeals to yo you, ultimately it won't cost a lot more than really high quality NOS. But if you are bent on trying spome there there are more than a couple of decent Telefunken 12AX&s around and for 6922 the Amperex suggestion is a good one.
