While testing some tubes today I ran into a problem testing a couple 7236 tubes (Cetron, Sylvania). I had the tester set for 6AS7 thinking this was the class of the 7236. Both tube read out at 200-300 on the GM meter, unlike the 5000-5800 for other tubes marked 6AS7G (Min 1800).
Not wanting to damage the tubes stopped seeking clarafaction of the tube class or settings.
Any advice is appreciated.
The short answer, "I'm stupid".
The long answer, my tube tester (TV10D/U) has a rolling chart split into two columns left and right. I am used to reading off the left column and the 7236, along with hundreds of other settings were on the right.
Use the settings at all checked out fine.
Have Fun and Enjoy the Music
