Tube Amp Myths

For fun, or in all seriousness, let's see what's out there.

Here's mine: You don't need to wear a hazmat suit to pull tubes. Nor any kind of gloves to protect the tubes from 'skin-oil'. Washing hands is enough, and is even likely unnecessary, unless you just finished a 'meat-lover's slice' or were working o a greasy engine.

Tube amps always sound better than solid state amps (which can cause hair loss and excessive nose/ear hair.)
Indeed, the clean on an Orange Tiny Terror leaves much to be desired, my Peavey Bandit sounds better.

Now, crank the citrus and t's a whole other ball game.

If you stick your hand in the guts you’ll zap the shit out of yourself and it hurts like fuck...

I must admit to handling and installing the tubes in my Studio One with a cloth.
