Comes with original EH6922 tubes as supplied by Parks Audio
I
rolled some tubes the first month or two , and still have a matched and
tested pair of Sylvania 6922's available for purchase separately. They
were purchased from Arizona Tube Supply.  I paid about $ 80 for the pair
and will include in this offering for for an additional $50.00

The
preamp is in perfect operating and cosmetic condition, and has seen
very little use about 50 hours. Im sorry to sell but moving out of
country and cant take my Audio Equipment.
The Item is also listed in Ebay and will close this listing when sold
