And there was much rejoicing!  beyersmile.png

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 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 #3547 of 10646

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

post #3548 of 10646

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.

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

Thanks!

 

I'll put up a list of tube types I have and can use in my amps and then start from there.

AM I correct in saying most tube testers just test for leaks/emissions and good/bad without putting values on it?

Tube testers are almost as varied as the tubes themselves.  If you talk to bob and tell him what you are looking to accomplish he will point you in the right direction. He is very opinionated but he has the right to be since he knows so much.  I have never been dissatisfied with any purchase from bob.
