Amplifier valves & re-valve kits: (digitally tested & matched):
Our valves are supplied brand new, boxed & tested direct from the manufacturer. We then re-check the valves performance data at our repair centre using calibrated test equipment & closely match the power valves using an accurate digital machine. See valve testing & matching.
Valves can be purchased from our on-line shop. We can advise on valves if you are thinking about upgrading or even just replacing stock valves. Check out our large selection of valve amp kits if your tube amp is sounding a little tired out!

Sustain is improved in the top three strings as hoped for and the jumbos feel just right. Great work!
All the best, Les”
