audiogurujax,

Thanks for the information. I just ordered 4 TAD 6L6GC-STR Premium Selected RCA-Style Black-Plate tubes.

Great price on those Tungsol el34's.

Wish they had the Tungsol's 6SN7's on sale.

Wow, looks TGTBT. But I ordered quad sets of the TAD Premium Select 6L6GC-STR RCA Style Black Plates, the EL34B Tung Sol's, and the TAD Premium Select EL-34B STR tubes. All tubes plus shipping was just under $100. I likely will not be having to purchase tubes for some time. Thanks for the heads up!

Two of the TAD EL34B STR. I've been wanting to compare them to my other EL34's.

Hi

Thanks for the deal but wanted to know if anyone ordered the TAD EL34B and recieved the TAD 6L6GC-STB instead. Didn't have any issues with the rest of my order.

wln1111,

I ordered the 4 TAD 6L6GC-STR Premium Selected and received the Tung-Sol 6L6GL-STR tubes. I was thinking the same thing when I saw them.

Darn it, looks like I missed out on those TAD-STR EL34s.  Would have liked to have had some at that price.  But I am already well stocked, so I can live without them.

I called them and they are sending the correct tubes. They realized there was a mistake in their inventory codes.

I'll call them too because I also didn't get the tubes I ordered. I suspected this was TGTBT. The tubes were also boxed rather poorly with no padding. Just the tubes in their boxes put in plastic bags to separate the models. The box was a bit damaged and some of the tube boxes were a bit smooshed, but so far the tubes appear ok. I've had tubes damaged in shipping before and you could see some particles of something floating around inside if you turned them upside down. But I'm thinking of sending them all back. We'll see.
