Need source for 26 Globe tubes
« on: December 07, 2015, 03:47:03 PM »
Anybody know of a decent source for 26 tubes? Need these for our new 26 linestage.  I found a source that has a few pair of ST styles but looking for some Globe style pieces.
Prefer US sources but will look at all options.
Appreciate any leads.

I reached out to some sellers and got a reply back.

Do the 26 tubes have to be new? And how many are you looking for? Also I'm assuming they have to be matched pairs?

Hi sleepy. Thanks for your efforts. The tubes don't need to be new but do have to test good and yes, preferably match or close.
I found a decent supply of ST glass 26s but looking mainly for globes now.

I don't know if they sound any better, but I do like the way the globes look.

Different is good.  :thumb:

The globes are supposedly slightly warmer. I like slightly warmer and do like the looks of them as well. Just want to have different types to play with along with some 01As. The Master 26 comes equipped with ST style 26s.

Hi Bill,

I reached out to Jim McShane on your behalf to see if he had any 26 Globe Tubes and he didn't have any. I also reached out to Brent Jessee and no word from him either.

Best of luck on the hunt.
