  • Do you remember I had an amp that did not function? I found the problem

    It was missing a pre-amp tube . I put a new one in and boy does that sound good now. I had forgotten I've taken it out. It was sometime ago. I had a dissimilar experience.



    I took it expensive tube out of an amplifier and replaced it with a cheap one. Then about one year later I have it repaired. When I got it back I saw that cheap tube and I thought the repairman stole my good tube . I went back to him and let them know in no uncertain terms I did not appreciate his thievery. Then, long long time later I discovered the missing expensive tube stashed in my closet. You see, I've taken it out put it there and forgotten. Can you imagine how much of an idiot I felt? I went back to him and profusely apologized. Have you ever done anything that stupid?

                The ancient Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu, sometimes called the first libertarian thinker, said, "The more artificial taboos and restrictions there are in the world, the more the people are impoverished. ... The more that laws and regulations are given prominence, the more thieves and robbers there will be."

                  I have moved a lot of maps in my life and never has a pre amp tube or power amp tube just fallen out.



                  Fender has a springy clip thing in there power section and a springy cover thing in there pre amp section, Mesa copied this, Marshal has a 2 spring and a ring that hold power tubes in place.



                  I forgot what Vox does, but how they hell does a tube just fall out?

                    I bought some stuff off E-Bay which was not quite what I expected. I whined and sent it back and later found out that it was exactly what I should have expected, if you know what I mean. I still feel silly.
