Night Time Shots Of Our Tubes Glowing -- Post Them Here!! - Page 48

Not exactly tube glow but found this video amusing.  Can't imagine anyone doing it to any live tube of worth though..

The one complaint I have about my Apex Peak is that I don't get that sexy tube glow.

Will it fit in your microwave oven?

For tube glow purposes there is just no beating regulator tubes - most of the glow in my Decware Mini-Torii comes from the four regulator tubes.

Heh, I just had this funny though to build a tube amp with a plasma globe in the middle. All that chargeup would probably be terrible for sound though... hmm, or maybe just ditch the audio circuit and use tubes to power the globe!

This is the bad thing about owning an SPL Phonitor...no pretty night time pictures with glow. Unless you count the VUs.

Can't wait to contribute to this thread (convincing myself to pull the trigger on something anyway)!  This is website is evil, mostly because of such beautiful threads as this.
