    a bit of a noob question, but:

    i'm gonna get a rather large assortment of 12AX7 tubes soon, but i dont feel like opening and closing the hoods to my Demeter and Aguilar Pre's every time i power up for a test run. can i just leave the top open as i play the pre?? or is this unsafe?

    btw, some of the notable tubes i'm getting are a pair of JAN-Phillips, JAN-GE and Tungsram 12AX7's, pair of JAN-GE 5751's, and a coveted pair of Mullard CV4004's. i'll post up a tone report for y'all when i'm done.
     
  2. Is it unsafe... you betcha! Is it going to hurt anything... probably not. Just don't touch anything internal, even by accident... don't let your kids, wife, or dog touch anything either... and don't spill anything liquid... you know the drill.

    Can't wait to hear your reviews... keep us up to date.
