Tubes for Antique Sound Labs 805 DT Mono Block Amp


I have just purchased the Antique Sound Labs 805 DT Mono Block Power Amplifiers, and I was hoping to get some advice on tube rolling. Specifically, I would like to find some NOS 805 tubes? 6L6 tubes? 12ax7 tubes. Where is a good place to buy these tubes. Thanks in advance.



P.S. Great amps!

Hi Jeff,

I have the stock version, but would love to hear your comparisons between the modified version to the stock version. Please let me know!

It just so happens that I had a pair of NOS Mullard 12AX7 tubes from a previous amp. The Explorer 805 came with a pair of JJ 12AX7's, but they don't compare to the Mullards. Right now, I have the stock Antique Sound Labs 6L6 tubes in the Explorer 805. What do you think is the best sounding 6L6 tube in this unit?

According to Jeff's Sound Values this is the newest version. The Explorer 805 does have the five transformers, but not the platecap. I would love to try the RCA 805 tubes, but wouldn't I have to have the platecap modification? Thanks much for your response.
