Vacuum tubes, which date back to the 19th century, are a very interesting old technology. While they've been replaced by newer solid state technology in most applications, they are still prized in music where they are found in fine amplifiers for guitars and other instruments and in power amplifiers for musical reproduction.

The Western Electric 300B is a classic power tube that sounds great and gives off a beautiful blue and red glow when it's running.

Thanks for looking!

Hi ether, several years ago I picked up a used set of Wavelength Cardinal 300B amps. I like them a lot. My guitar amp is also tube driven. Old tech, but they sound nice!

I think I ready to try those super low powered amps soon.
My ProAc speakers are pretty sensitive and they match with tubes very well...though I never tried 9W amp.

Back on topic.... I think you should actually post the picture of the amp...most people would think it is something from the 50s
