Also one of my favorite smells!
Well this being my first tube amp and all, how would I know why it was smelling? I mean, I DID say this was the first time I ever cranked the volume. But thanks anyway for the useless egotistical reply, douchebag!
That tube smell takes me back to when I was a kid, when we had those big humongous tube television sets.
I live in an apartment.
The best ones smell like that.
You should take a whoof of my Mesa/Boogie TC100, you can get that sucker hot enough to heat the room. I haven’t even pushed it that hard yet, maybe 1/3rd volume or so. They even put a fan in it so they must know how she cooks. I don’t dare cover it for an hour or so after playing.
no need for lube when a Marshall's warmed up.
I guess Hoppe’s 9 has been a lot of folks 'go-to' for the longest time, but for me it's WD-40 (though "Brite-Bore" from Remmington is mightily impressive on the cleaning front - less so on the smell)
As for cranked valve amps and glycol foggers- that's the smell of good music...
Just means you have a larger audience. Just file a noise complaint every time you play and they won't think it is you.
My tube amps smells like fart... As it should.
Go ahead and fry your tubes if that gets you off along with your name calling. Sure, it is useless to check your bias. You know that now, don't you?
You either want to get laid or you don't.
If your bias is set correctly and the power tubes are not red platting then do not worry about it.
The first time I fired up my Vintage Modern, I started smelling something after about an hour. It definitely wasn't awesome.
Luckily it was just a bias issue (biased 20mv too hot). I set it to the correct bias and a year later its still running like a champ!
Watch out for the reds.
