Some amps are too big, some too small. I need great fidelity and a big sound. Try to find that at a music store! And if you can't, it's time for a DIY amp!

Some ‪#‎amps‬ are too big, some too small. How about something that is ‪#‎handwired‬ using the best components, very rugged, relatively low power, has great fidelity and a big sound? Try and find that sitting on the shelf at the music store! This week's blog is Part 1 of John Templeton's 3-part series on designing and building a one of a kind ‪#‎vacuumtube‬ #amplifier for ‪#‎electric‬ #guitar.

In a market that has a lot of options for a 6L6, this #VacuumTube could be a stand out. Read the full review for the latest edition to our Preferred Series lineup. Could this be your next 6L6GC?

Any pedal junkies out there? Learning how to build your own pedal brings you a deeper understanding of the musical process. Once you have mastered building a pedal you can make your own adjustments and start to create a sound that is truly your own. Check out our blog where Alex provides some great DIY info. buff.ly/2j254VZ 
A good way to build confidence and learn a few things is to make some effect pedals. There are a number of places online where kits, parts, and circuit boards are available.

Your trusted online source for audio tubes.
Introduction
On Valentine's Day in 1999 thetubestore.com received its first order in the brave new world of e-commerce. We had about 40 products and 400 square feet of space.

We quickly became the number one seller of tubes online with innovations like our simple to use website, the Perfect Pair system, Shop by Amp, pre-amp tube selection and a commitment to quality products and exceptional service. We continue to be the market leader in innovation, service, and dedication to tube audio.

Thanks to our customers for many remarkable years - especially those brave enough to order online in 1999! We look forward to many more years of that familiar warm analog sound.
