Tube tester

Hey guys,

I think one of my 6dj8/6922 has gone bad, does anyone near Pittsburgh have a tube tester I could utilize? thanks in advance!

Thanks Emp.  It was a dead Siemens 6922 (ouch)

As much as I love the sound of tubes, they come with pre loaded wallet anxiety. Took me awhile to find what I was looking for, if any of them go bad I don't look forward to finding and/or paying crazy prices for replacements. I use a quad of Siemens EL84/6BQ5 from Lithuania and a pair 6201/12AT7WA then there's the Telefunken 12ax7's.

Sorry, don't have any 6922's here.
