I thought The Tube Store sale does not start until Friday.

Have a look at KO Amplifiers and Effects Pedals Kevin O'Reilly in North Bay, Ontario. I love his Stout Drive. Big fat fuzz with great note definition, and sensitive to pick attack. Also love the Clean Machine. Can play whisper quiet, or gig volume. No worries about ripping tolex or getting wet.

I went on line late last night - it was after midnight out east - and Tubestore sale was already on.

So I bought new tubes for my LSS (Preferred Series 7189) and TA15 (Mullard EL-84), my main gigging amps. I also bought a few low gain preamp tubes, 12AT7 and a 12AU7 (since shipping was already covered). Preamp tubes don't wear out, and I've got lots of them, it's power tubes I worry about. They get more expensive every year, new production is questionable, and I don't think it will get any better any time soon. So I figure I may as well stock up to get me through the next decade or two.

I pick up another set of Preferred 7189s every time they go on sale. They're going to run out of them eventually so best to stock up.

I was in Walmart to last night to get washer fluid (ran out) and they had 30" smart TV's for $299, 55" RCA 4K smart TV's for $499 I figured that was not bad.
Never buy RCA TVs. I did a few years ago. Out of the 4 I bought 3 were defective. RCA has the worst warranty phone system. The one still in use doesn't have proper remote codes so the Bell remote cannot turn it on/off or volume. Just don't do it.
