Am I right about that?

 

Thanks!


In most amps the current through the tubes is the same whether audio is applied or not.

And with audio the average current is the same.

So just leaving the amp on is using up the tubes as much as if the music was playing.

Thanks Glenn!

How long do you typically warm the Cary before you settle down and listen? There's :wink_face:somethin' about heat... and I like my fire bottles :tongue_smile:hot! Jimmy Smith ain't really cookin' on the Hammond B3 unless my amps are cookin'! :wink:

Been weeks since I used a tube amp. What's wrong with me? :rolleyes:

Of late, I've got the BIG SS in a 10 day rotation (once every 10 days); Glass rounding out the month.

Usually about 30 minutes....It is nice and warm by then.

Absolutely nothing. I listen to tubes, SSs, and hybrids all the time with nary a thought of my sanity. Huh? :D

It's true, I admit it. Well, partially. I've been using my portable rig with the LCD-2. The misses made me move all my gear out of the living room and I'm too lazy to get out of the couch.

At least you are still allowed in the living room!

Maybe take a nice pic of your lit up 300B and stare at it while listening to your little rig....

Stavros, Glenn, or anyone else, how do you test an ECC40?  It has 8 pins which are equally spaced and none of my testers have a socket that that tube.

You would have to have a adapter to test them.

I think I made some adapters for Stavros don't know if I have that strange socket right now

I will have to look when I get home.
