I want to place an order. Is it difficult?

Ordering couldn't be easier.

Once you've decided on what you want, just click the "Add to Cart" button for that product. That product will be dropped into your cart. You will notice that you don't have to leave the product page for each item you place in your basket. When ordering tubes, remember all of our tubes are sold singly. By default, the number 1 is shown in the quantity field. If you need a matched pair of power tubes, just enter the number 2 or click the up arrow on the right side of the quantity field and you will get a matched pair. If you need a matched quad, input the quantity 4 and select the "Match these tubes" radio button. You will automatically receive a matched quad.

If you are finished shopping and ready to checkout then select the "Proceed To Secure Checkout" button and proceed through checkout. You can checkout as a guest, but if you want a faster experience, then go ahead and create your account. You will be able to track your orders and see your order history.

During the checkout process, you will provide your billing and shipping information. Please make sure to provide accurate billing and shipping information as orders with incorrect information can lead to delays or cancellation. The billing address is the address where your credit card statement is sent. You will then choose your preferred method of shipping, input your payment information, review your order and send it. Thats it.

Will you confirm my order with an email?

Yes, we will email tracking information and your invoice upon shipment. If you placed an order and you have not received an email with a tracking number, it may be because of "Spam Blocking". Unfortunately these "Spam Blockers" may see our tracking confirmation email as Spam. We have no control over your Internet Service Provider and the way they stop Spam. If you have not received a tracking number for your shipment, please email or call (Toll Free: 877-289-7994) us and we will be happy to provide it to you.
