In the Thread: Get, or made up a tube tester, it’s necessary
Post Subject: Deep enough...Posted by Paul S on: 1/7/2007
Wise words that mirror my own renewed concerns, Romy.

Any recommendations for a particular tester, anyone?  The last time I put my hands on a tester to use it was in a drugstore, one of the many places you could find them back in the day when radios and TVs were almost all tubed.  Oh, and it was as big as a two-drawer filing cabinet on stilts...

As much as I do NOT want to OD on DIY, I have long wanted to be able to test my tubes for myself, both to extend my purchasing options and to add that capability for process-of-elimination trouble shooting, just like having a good DMM or dB meter, etc.

Although I am in no way "committed to tubes", I suppose I have to face the fact that my aural tastes have long tended that way.  In any case, I don't see the ML2s getting superceded any time soon...

Best regards,
Paul S
