ONE DAY THERE WILL BE NO MORE LEFT. On my tester a B&K 747 tester.
I will never sell a tube that is below standard. I will work with you in good faith if there are any problems, or if you are unsatisfied in any way.
All tubes are tested for shorts, continuity, and emissions. I will bend over backwards to make sure that you are a happy customer. PLEASE NOTE: Tube silkscreen (lettering on the tubes) is VERY fragile. It can be wiped off and destroyed VERY easily.
DO NOT handle the tubes or hold them from the cylinder. ALWAYS hold them from the ENDS. TESTING: I test all tubes that I sell in one way or another, or I will state "untested". I have a B&K 747 tube tester. This is a mutual conductance tester.
It give a percentage value of gm for the tube under test and checks for shorts and grid emissions. I also use a Tektronix curve tracer for testing triodes. I give a number of evaluations for tubes. One evaluation is a screen shot of the tube with a high voltage applied to the plate. The Curve tracer steps the triode through 10 gate/grid voltages starting with -10 volts and going to 0 volts.
The lines show how the tube conducts throughout that range. At 0 volt the tube is at max conduction and is the top line on the display. It is easy at that point to take where that top line intersects the plate voltage, find the milliamp level and compare it to the datasheet. I give those numbers for you in the "Item condition box". This can then be compared to other tube sellers using inferior test methods such as Hickok.The Tektronix curve tracer gives values within 3% of the actual value. The very best portable testers only can approach 10% accuracy. Please note: The numbers given for gm are what I see on my tester.
I DO NOT guarantee that you will see those numbers on your tester. I only guarantee that these tubes will test good, with no shorts, or gas, on a decent calibrated tester. I don't guarantee or imply anything else. Vintage tube testers almost always, due to age, have VERY LOW HEATER VOLTAGES!!!
Every tester I have ever bought is below 6 volts when selecting 6.3 volts. They average 5.8 volts. The voltage NEEDS to be 6.3 and 12.6. You can calibrate a vintage tube tester all you want. If the heater voltage is not right, you will NEVER get the right gm value.
I have customers complain that their tubes are not the same as what I see on my tester. They say they have a calibrated tube tester. I have 40 tube testers. On all of them I have an outside regulated DC power supply that feeds the tube tester the correct heater voltage. I don't check each and every tube for noise or tone.
This is SUBJECTIVE and it is too time consuming. Please wait for us to invoice you for the correct amount.
This is an honesty issue. We are honest with everyone to the best of our ability to do so. We want you to trust that what we say is true. There cannot be that trust, if we make false statements knowingly to anyone.
