Hi all. Need your help an shipping a tube amp. I just sold a Marshall head and want to know if there is a best way to handle the tubes.

Should I leave them in. This seems to me the safest way though I’ve heard people removing them. I would think that removing them there’s more potential of getting damaged.

I’m assuming that if removing them is the best practice, that they stay in the shell wrapped in bubble?

Thanks!

Remove them.
label each one with position, left to right.
Wrap each in bubble wrap or inside a toilet paper tube and put all in a separate box fit snug but not tight. Pack that box inside head if possible.

Hit all the major points re: tubes.

Only thing I’ll add is, if possible, double box the whole thing.
