Home Tubes Asylum

Questions about tubes and gear that glows. FAQ


I'm not disputing the air ionization factor, but one would think the octal bases of the potato mashers would show the ridges we find in larger power tubes like the KT-88's: providing a Longer pathway to prevent arcing over between the pins.

There may be more to the high altitude thing than we know. Then again, I never had an opportunity to take apart the potato masher base, so I have no idea what makes that base so unique other than its size.
