My tubes become very warm when I use it

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hello

 

This is my first time using a tube amp, I am using Little Dot MK II with the HD650

 

And once I started using them, the tube became very very warm like a lamp bulb

Very warm my hands felt like burning when I touched them

 

Is that normal ?

It may come as a shock, but tubes get warm. Something to do with filaments and electricity I guess.

Heya,

 

It's normal.

 

It has a lot of energy flowing. Energy translates as heat. Take a look at an older light bulb, hood of a car engine, the CPU/GPU in your computer, etc.

 

Very best,

Sound normal. My Little Dot I+ tubes don't get too terribly hot, but my friend's Little Dot MKII tubes sure as hell do. Accidentally swiped my hand up against it and almost squealed. tongue.gif

This may also come as a shock....but it's possible to answer a question without being rude and sarcastic
