Need help location tube sockets.

Anyone know of a US supplier that carries GM70 tube sockets. I'd rather stay in the US if I can but anywhere I can order from and not have to wait till February to receive them will work.

Thank you Jake. I have come across those but don't want to use $400 sockets for prototype work. Trying to find standard ceramic ones for jow.

No even in Rússia there is GM70 sockets,
only the cheap sino rca stile,
look at GSTUBES.com located in Moscow.
I rec the De Haviland the best there is.

For a low cost solution any cerâmic septar socket will fit if you enlarge the hóles.

Those look pretty nice for $6.40 each.

Certainly Tubedepot and PCX have the 6c33 version.
