Just something I want to know before I buy a new amp - How often will I have to replace tubes, which brand should I get, and how expensive will it be?
The amp I'm looking at runs 4 6L6's and 6 12AX7's.

There's no set time, but your power tubes will probably last 2 or 3 years, and preamp tubes often last longer than that, though you might want to replace a few of them earlier for better tone.
It's also possible for a power tube to blow after six months, in which case you'll need a new set of power tubes. It's just luck.

It will cost about $120 for a full retube, but again you probably won't be replacing all the tubes at once unless you really want to.

Depends on how much you play. I have to replace mine about every year and a half to two years. The 6L6's I've got now cost $60.
