Testings are inconsistent

I had high hopes for this product but I've been very dissappointed. The test results are inconsistent to the point of being useless. I'm aware that the manufacturer warns that differences in room temperature might produce different results but I'm talking about results produced in the same room, with the same tubes. I do realize that the tubes need to be cooled down before re-testing. Even with hours between the testings the same tube can measure up to 2-3 numbers apart.

I've tested output tubes that I already knew were rated very far apart and they measured identical on the VT1000. In contrast, I've had professionally matched sets of output tubes measure as un-matched on the VT1000.

I've tested preamp tubes that I already knew were balanced and they tested as unbalanced (triodes up to 2-3 numbers apart) on the VT1000. How can I trust the VT1000 when it says a tube IS balanced?

Basically I can't trust any testings done on the VT1000, except perhaps to check if a tube is broken or not.

The ratings given by the VT1000 is obviously not comparable to the detailed measurements given by professional tube testers. I was hoping to simply use the VT1000 for fast and easy matching of output tubes and also to identify balanced preamptubes. It turns out the VT1000 can't be trusted for any of these tasks.

The only reason I didn't return the VT1000 for a refund was that I was just going away on a holiday when it arrived so I didn't have the time to test it properly before the 30-day return policy had passed.

Very poor product!

Just what the Doctor ordered!

I'm a qualified radio tech and a guitarist that takes care of his own gear. I recently aquired a stereo el34 based amp with issues.

Tracked it down to the tubes with this unit. As a check before fitting the new tubes I ran the new tubes, which were pro selected as a matched quad set through the VT1000. The tubes showed up as perfectly balanced, confirming the supplier/ manufacturer figures for matching.

I also tested other new and old tubes and was able to detect the weak from the strong and those defective.

Awsome product, pity more tube types are not supported...

A worthwhile addition to my equipment.

As somebody who builds and fiddles with valve amps, a valve tester was on my list of 'Stuff to buy' list. The traditional valve testers can be quite daunting and I felt required a degree of skill to operate and interpret the results.

Enter the VT1000.

Very simple to use and gives results in just over a minute for most valves.

Whilst not a cheap piece of gear, it has a sturdy metal case and ceramic sockets.

As has been mentioned by a few over people, it's a shame it doesn't test rectifier valves and a few other of the lesser known types. The design has limited it to the most common types which will suit most people.

Overall I'm very pleased with it and would recommend it to anyone who's 'into' valve technology.

Five stars for quality but four stars total due to the limited range of valves that can be tested.

I'm Liking This A Lot!

I've been tekking guitar amps for quite a while..and built some of my own. I select valves based on "in amp" measurements and my ears. I've recently started doing fixes for a local guitar/amp shop and have quite a few amps in for a fix. Testing valves in amp takes ages..I bought the VT1000 in the hopes it would help make thing easier and quantifiable....I started with my own amps and stock....It's like "psychotester".. preamp valves I'd picked for low gain came out lower ...valves picked for PI came out matched..power amp pairs/quads picked for in amp measurement matching came out matched...I'm impressed!
I was however scared to death when the thing refused to let me change valve type..stuck on EL34...so I tried holding down the selector button and then powering up...which seems to have sorted it..phew!
I'm now at the stage where I can feel like I trust the measurements..First thing with an amp through the door is a VT1000 check on the valves..so far a couple of failed valves it would have taken me a while ( poking around high volts) to find...and enabled selection of balanced preamp valves for PI. So far my customers have been delighted! Best thing is it's idiot proof!.. I get them to test their own valves while I check other stuff!..They love it!
