Karltone are a U.K based company offering great prices and a friendly service on guitar and amplifier accessories.

All our valves are premium tested by us on precision digital and analogue equipment.

Our power-amp valves go through our in-house 'platinum & matching testing' procedure which entails a 30-40 hour burn-in before testing and matching. The reason we do this is to get rid of any faulty or weak valves and as a pre-grading process to allow the plate/grid mechanism to relax into it's rest position. Tiny differences in construction make for enormous differences in electrical characteristics, and thus if a tube is graded after it's been burned in then the measured characteristics hold true over its lifespan to a greater extent. This seems simple but it's amazing how many vendors ignore it. It's the reason so many people complain about poorly graded valves.
