    Just got a MB Compressore ... wow, talk about a buttery smooth sound. Amazing how much control it offers.

    Although I'm perplexed about something that being the tube doesn't glow at all. Is this normal for this unit?

    What about those of you that have one. Does the tube glow in yours?

    Some tubes don't glow very brightly. The one on my old Compressore was very faint so I don't think it's an issue.

    Mine does glow. Even with the pedal disengaged.
    And I though that was an issue… :)
    But as long as it is sounding good…

    That's how mine was. In some light you can't see it at all.

    Some tubes glow more than others. The stock 12AX7s in my Orange Bass Terror light up like a Christmas tree, but the Gold Lion ones I put in there don't glow at all.

    Some pedals have silly LED lights that make the tubes look like they are glowing brighter than they really do.
