The tubes in the Lyr look very recessed and a nightmare to remove.
I've seen it on here that some people use masking tape...? How does that help? Do you guys mean duct tape, because the 'masking tape' in my country (UK) barely sticks to anything and I don't see how it would help...?
Has anyone broken a tube inside the amp trying to get the tubes out? That must suck, and it must be a fairly commonplace accident to happen with this amp!!
A related question: how long are you meant to 'warm up' the tubes before each listening session?
