11 hours but they have over an hour delay.

Just got a new fuse. Original was a T 3.15A L 250V, new one is a T 3.15A 250D but I tried it and it seems to work fine. I've revived the 2359Glenn 300b Integrated Amp!

 

I'll be buying a Tube Tester next. Stavros promised to help me find a good one for the tubes I need but welcome to any tips :)

I've just been very lucky since I joined Head-Fi meeting so many nice people like you X.

Ultra, that's great, sorry I couldn't be of any help.

 

I've learned the hard way about the value of testers.

I spent a lot of time and had plenty lessons from Bob Putnak of tubnesound.com who is one of the best when it comes to testers.

 

I am ready whenever you decide to look into the subject.

I own 4 tube testers that I bought from Bob Putnak. He's a good friend of mine. We also share cooking recipes (believe it or not). They all have been calibrated and one of them actually has a rectifier in it. It is a tube tube tester!!!

 

Here are the Hickok Model 799, and the PACO Model 10-12.

What budget are we looking at for a tube tester?

post #3536 of 10999

For under $500 you can get a tester from Bob and that'll be all you ever need.

post #3537 of 10999

That's what I had in mind. Better shoot stavros and Clayton an email :)

I just got a Jackson 646 from him which I really like.

post #3539 of 10999

Any info/sites I should read up on? Are there any sellers in the EU (would save up on customs/sending costs)
