Be sure your tubes are ready to rock
Think you've got a bad tube? Now you can know instantly.
The Orange VT1000 Valve Tester makes it easy to know if your tubes are good or bad. Even if you've never worked on an amp before, you'll be confident that your tubes are ready to play or install. Don't let your amp die mid-show!
Simple to use
The Valve Tester is truly plug and play: just connect the tube, select it on the tester, and hit OK. The tester springs to life, instantly running 15 tests in two minutes, making sure the tube is fully functioning. You'll know if your tube is good, bad, or worn and ready to fail.
But it's more than just testing tubes
You'll also get a "Matching Value", so you can perfectly match power tubes and know the performance of preamp tubes—manufacturers charge extra for this critical step. Matched tubes let your amp run safer and keeps your tone more consistent.
You don't need to be an electrical engineer
If you've ever used a conventional tube tester, you know how complicated they can be. Lots of information, but not just the simple facts you actually need to know. The VT-1000 gives you the critical results so you can play and match tubes with ease. Say goodbye to mystery tubes and mismatched pairs forever!
With one octal socket and two 9-pin sockets, the tester works for all common power and preamp tubes used in countless amps.
