Good thread. This is something I need to know more about.
Very very helpful, thanks alot!
I highlighted the ones for guitar amps in white But it is a ridiculous list, have you got a link to the eurotubes one?
Printe and will be readed. Thanks
a bit late in this response..
should be it!
^ those are brand specific, so it's not exactly an unbiased resource.
but seriously, yeah, that's a gigantic list of tubes. kinda cool, though... makes you realize how many tubes COULD be utilized, and how few actually make it into production amplifiers.
yeah it's biased - the man wants to sell his product lol. (and it is a good product)
is anybody opposed to me copying and pasting the info post to another site? i'd link it to here..
This is well worth checking out if you haven't already:
How Amps Work
Cool, added it in as a resource link
Also cool, have added the warning about bias as well
No problem, I don't mind, as long as the corrections make it back here, as there may be mistakes, and it'd be nice to have them rectified
shibby, thanks james
I'll post a link back to the thread, but i dont know if non-ss.org members will be able to get to it? they should..
Kickass explanations! A lot of things I wanted to know in here.
I was actually never sure how you were supposed to turn on a tube amp.
There's a lot of useful info in this thread, I certainly leant a lot about tube amps... just makes me want a "real" amp more & more now...
great ceasars ghost.. I actually didn't know that , not that I'm super knowledgeable .. but I was doing it the way you described it above most of the time,,, & sometimes just shutting it down(power-off only) when pressed for time. THANKS!
I'll be sure to pass along the info-just shut it down & nvm the standby.
I am considering buying my first tube amp, and found this page very helpful.
Stupid question : how long you guys generaly wait before putting the amp on "Standby" if you want to take a break, but know you'll be playing later on?
Like, is it worth putting the amp on "Standby" if you only stop for 15 minutes?
I know I wouldn't let the amp "on" for an hour without playing, but I'm just curious to see.
I've left it on standby for an hour before, really the longer it's on standby the better it'll sound when you come back to it. Generally I only turn the amp off when I'm going home/leaving the gig. In fact, sometimes if we're headlining and the venue wants to setup a backline, I'll turn my amp on and let it warm up while the other bands play, then I just show up on stage and go.
So to answer your question: yes.
This amp is awesome and is chalk full of information. Great read.
dont you mean thread?
