Engl powerball problem.

So playing my Engl for a little bit this morning. Noticed the volume pots don't really do a fat lot.. (I near enough maxed it out on both and it wasn't really that loud at all)
Started to get fizzy too so I'm assuming the power tubes are going. No lights have come on yet though.

Just wondering what the best (not costing an arm and a leg cause im skint) 6l6gc's I should get.

Might replace the pre amp tubes too if i can afford it.

UK websites too are a big plus.

UK, not too sure. Tubedepot is pretty decent, but they're USA.

JJ's are fine.

I think they're using TAD tubes as stock nowadays. You can try those from tubeampdoctor.com. I've read of lots of folks putting JJ's in them too.

Can only think of Watford Valves in the UK, their might be more. And Eurotubes but they aren't based in Uk, but they deliver to Uk. Someone else might come up with Uk based companies.
