I wasn't making fun of him. I was laughing WITH him, not AT him, and I'm glad he's still with us after that scare! wink.gif

Besides, after what you did to your Crack, I think you've waived the right to call anybody else's ridiculous.

Sorry, Im not too familiar with tubes, what is that tube and adapter? price? 

The orange-base input tube is Psvane CV131 Mark II and the power tube is GEC 6AS7G Brown base. Also, the tube adapter is a Chinese adapter which I purchased from Ebay.

 

Cheers,

Kratos.

Yes, you're right ;)

 

There are many people who are willing to pay hundreds of dollars just to make their amps look more awesome, so don't be afraid to pull the trigger, I guarantee you that your Crack will look much better after installing this tube, not to mention how it will sound :tongue:

Ahhhhh, but you see, my Crack isn't ridiculous.

More like insanely overkill territory. You may as well start de-soldering all the caps in your house appliances and attach those fist sized motor run caps for better transients and power deliver. Might make your fridge run colder or your microwave a faster heater. :o

That's because thus far I haven't figured out a way to rig the rocket booster packs such that they will enable the Crack to maintain a constant velocity of 88 mph. With variable thrust and acceleration, it is still too difficult to time the lightning strike just right...

Physical propellant? Oh come now, we both know a magnetic levitation system is the best way to provide a constant speed and voltage for those tubes...

Does it attract women that is the question?

Yes, but it turns out she was my mother.

You're joking, of course. It is a well known fact that the only thing in the universe that turns a woman colder than sci-fi/fantasy role playing games is tube amplifiers and flux capacitors.

Calvin Klein underwear, on the other hand, is a major turn-on. Especially if she thinks you're Calvin Klein...

You are a little too well versed in BTTF trivia. Disturbingly well versed.
