Do you guys use tube retainers in your 5E3's? Are they completely necessary and what is the best type for 6V6's? I tried to use some 6L6 ones by shortening the springs,but what a nightmare trying to reattach the springs to the clips.

Nope...skipped 'em altogether myself, the ceramic sockets I have seem to hold very securely these tubes...of course if they do ever loosen up [I can't see how they'd tighten...lol] than I might regret not having installed them.

i used to not use them, but now that i basically store the amp in the trunk of my car, it's become necessary. I use 6L6 tubes and the over-the-top retainers.
I prefer the fender claw type, however, as there's less chance of any rattle problems and they work with every type of tube equally well.
