All components in BOLD are loaned; all components in standard face are owned by me as of fall 2016

Two Upcoming Tube Fests

by Steve Graham

Tube Fest No. 1

A friend and I decided to sell off the majority of our collections of vintage and classic European tubes.  Part of the process was educating our customers about the intertwined and labyrinthian nature of tube production in this golden age of tube making.  It occurred to me that a primer on a pair of the most popular small-signal tubes would be of use.  A soon to be posted article will be an introduction to the minutia of the 6DJ8/ECC88 and 12AX7/ECC83 tubes produced in Europe and Great Britain. … Read the full article
