Re: mesa sp12ax7..shrink wrap
I've done a little experimenting with this and discovered you can get the same stuff Mesa uses at almost any auto parts store. It's like rubber tubing. It does help when you are dealing with Dual Recs and super high gain amps.  
WARNING: After trying the shrink wrap thing I wouldn't recommend shrink wrapping 12AX7's as a rule because when the tube get's hot the shrink wrap keeps shrinking! Thus the tube get's crushed. Nasty mess! (ha, ha)
