I would check into the Ei tubes from Yugoslavia, I hear that these are pretty 
good in the preamp section. I am currently using one of their EL84 tubes and 
I swear that thing sounds like a Mullard in the power stage of a K-zoo. has these for $4.99 right now. If you want some good tubes for a 
low price these are the way to go.  I like Telefunkens as well, but I swear 
the price of them is ridiculous. They are rather nice though.
