Isn’t it a mini tube in them? 

It is indeed and soldered into the circuit board so it looks like a pig of a job to do if you want to have a crack yourself. Tubes are hard to get as well.

Hi Guys .Found said tubes on ebay £5 plus postage.NOS.

Yes, but that's the only ones I could find too other than £25 plus VAT (plus shipping?) at Watford Valves. I agree that desoldering this tube would be tricky. It's most likely lead free solder (RoHS compliant) which is a pig without higher temperature equipment. If you really want a Markbass head with a valve pre I'd strongly recommend one of the older TA series.

If they are good for 5000 hours perhaps something else is making you think it might be a dodgy tube?

 

Playing amped for 5 hours per week = 260 hours per year = life span of 19 and a bit years.

How old is it?
