    Functioning or not? Used or unused? Soldered to the PCB? Any particular tube or just any tubes?

    I suggest trying Sim Lim Plaza. Other than that, eBay, or search google.

    Tubes of any sort, working or spoilt. I'm using them for a construction project. I'll check out Sim Lim, was hoping for a local source.

    What tube types are you looking for? Pentodes? Tetrodes?

    NOS (new old stock) tubes can be found on eBay, but as you probably already know, are expensive. In fact, finding and selling NOS tubes is a profitable cottage industry in itself.

    Like others have suggested, you can try Burlington Square. They mostly sell brand new, or NOS tubes. I would be very doubtful if you can find a good deal there, if bargain hunting is your objective.

    I'm not looking for anything in particular, just need a few old ones for making a sculpture. Don't need working ones. Does the sungei road area have them occassionally?
