We offer vacuum tube testing at no cost.
If you live in the Hudson Valley area we can arrange a time to meet with you and perform tube checks.
If you live outside the area we will still test the tubes you must simply pay the shipping both ways. Whether a tube passes or fails we will always return them with a copy of the test report. Check with us on how to ship your tubes safely.
Do not let your tubes go bad without knowing. They can damage other valuable components such as capacitors and transformers if they catastrophically fail. We perform a simple in house test with our heathkit TC-2 that will give you a very accurate output reading. Based on the information gathered you can decide when it is time to purchase a new set of tubes to keep your equipment sounding great. We offer the best prices on individual, matched pairs, or quads from all the top modern makers, and NOS vintage.
To arrange for test send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org telling me what tubes you would like tested and I will set up a time to perform the tests. You can either drop the tubes off and they can be tested around our schedule or we will make time to do them on the spot for you.
