Home Tube DIY Asylum

Do It Yourself (DIY) paradise for tube and SET project builders.

RE: Have you figured out your scope yet?

Gusser I do not dislike you I do not even know you. The whole scope thing came about because no one could give me a answer to why a voltage drop across choke was different than a resistor. Just got the scope for phase angles I needed to check. I am the first guy to admit my lack of knowledge of scopes. But if you notice no one came up with a answer just more questions. I put up the pictures and there are some nice guys who are still trying help me figure this out.

So is simple terms ,so this small mind of mine can grasp, why does a tube sound different than a transistor? Why do different tubes sound different? Transformers and caps. We will stop there because most people can hear differences in these components. Forget about the mechanical differences and let's go on test equipment. We can pick something as simple as a 300b vs 2a3. Do the numbers on what ever machine show what it is going to sound like??? And if you came up with whatever red flag does that remain consistent for other tubes.

Is there a machine that can tell how a how a 845 will sound like with the b+ at 450volts vs 1200 volts. Or 50 ma vs 100 ma idle current. Really your only way out of this is to assume all the variables are in our heads.

Well I guess if I am living a sugar pill illusion then at least I want my favorite pill. Because in my illusion the pill's sound is consistent.

Infinity may be a wee bigger than you think!!!
