any websites where there are cheap sites to buy tubes? i went to guitar center today ( i need power tubes) and they said a matched set is over 120$ (for a b-52 at212). curious if there are cheaper places? oh and i went to one random site and for distortion tubes( sorry im not tube amp litterate) it said you can add hi-gain for $2. any ideas? thanks

$120 is a ripoff, you can do a full retube for cheaper than that.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

oh okay i found a chart that has all the tubes that it needs. i went to check out dougstubes.com and it has rating of: early distortion average distortion, and late distortion. what is that?

It means how loud it has to be for the powertubes to distort. For metal you will want late distortion because powertube breakup isn't really that disirable for metal. Classic rock or hard rock will probably require early breakup or average breakup.
