Svetlana makes a lot of big power tubes still to this day and they are good quality. RF Parts carries them:





Beware some of the cheap "chinese" tubes. I got two and they literally fell apart in my hands since the glue used to hold the base and top terminal was not designed to withstand heat :-p Once i glues them back together, they just arced and blew up.... I like Svetlana! The people at RF parts can help you be sure you get good ones. Svetlana's websites seem to be forever down :-(

RF Part also sell all kinds of other goodies!

        Tubes of the kind you'd need for that kind of test equipment are easy
to find at reasonable prices.  Quite a few guys have good stocks on hand
and have web pages.  Antique Electronic Supply is one example.
