    A professional grade hand-held vacuum tube pin straightener. Used to straighten and align vacuum tube pins. Great accessory for professional musician's, audiophile's and repair shop's working with tube-based audio components. Compatible with US/European and Russian/Chinese miniature 7-pin and 9-pin tubes with B7G bases (e.g., 6AK5, 5654, 6AU6, 6AQ5A tubes) and B9A bases (e.g., 12AX7, 12AU7, 5670, 6BQ5, EL84 tubes). Bent tube pins can permanently deform and loosen the contact between tube pins and socket contacts, which could negatively affect sound quality. Inserting tubes with bent pins into a socket can also damage the glass-metal interface along tube pins, resulting in reduced tube life or glass breakage. Modeled after vintage hand-held pin straighteners - but with significant improvements in machining accuracy and material. The straightener is CNC machined from a premium-grade martensitic stainless steel and hardened to RC50 (Rockwell C50). In addition to providing long life (as well as corrosion resistance) we chose a premium grade stainless for good reason; if a softer material is used for a pin straightener, for example aluminum alloys, pin contamination can occur (aluminum transferred to tube pins can form Al2O3). This pin straightener was designed for many years of troub...

  • Guitar Amplifier Handbook

    There's a huge amount of hype and mythology surrounding tube amplifiers in the guitar world. For years, experts have argued over the tiny details of exactly how they do what they do, and how their various components interact. What's undeniable is that, far more than being just a “loudness booster ” the unique combination of tubes, capacitors, resistors, and transformers in these amps can contribute enormously to the quality of sound derived from any electric guitar. In this thorough and authoritative book, Dave Hunter cuts through the marketing hyperbole, and the blind faith, and supplies all the information you need to choose the right amp, and get the best from it. The book also features exclusively conducted, in-depth interviews with leading figures in the tube amp-building world – including Ken Fischer, Mark Sampson, and Michael Zaite – and even provides full instructions on how to construct your own high-quality tube guitar amp from scratch.
