Questions about tubes and gear that glows. FAQ

But doesn't that take all of the fun out of owning tube gear?

Tweaking the bias every 10 minutes during the first 12-24 hours of run-in is part of the fun of owning tube amps.

And then, as a bonus, you might get lucky and find that one of your 'platinum matched' tubes refuses to hold bias even after 48 hours of use and you have to decide on sending back all 4-8 matched tube for replacement or just the one that won't hold bias which. of course, means your 'platinum matched' set is now of a lesser grade of valuable metal.

Like maybe 'brass matched'?
