A new amp is always exciting stuff Don. Good luck with it.

Make sure you grab a lifetime supply of spare tubes as well. They are no 
longer in production and they are getting very expensive and extremely 
hard to find.

Personally I would lean towards a brand that used current production tubes.

I own an amp which runs a Russian tube which is now all but 
unobtainable. Thankfully, last year, I was able to find a NOS spare and 
didn't need to sell the wife's car to pay for it. It happened all so 
quickly with the tube in my amp, going from good numbers available all 
over the world, to unobtainium. I'm talking about the GU91b/4CX1600B. My 
original tube is still 100% ok but without a spare, that amp is 
worthless should I ever think of selling it.

The GU84b and even more so, the GU78b are now disappearing at an 
alarming rate and I wish the stock market would rise at the rate of 
GU74b prices.

Stock up. Don't get bitten. Enjoy your new amp and your trip to Europe.

73, Alek.
