Continuing our proud record of delivering innovative solutions to musicians, Orange Amplification is proud to present a pioneering technology to match, test and grade valves the Orange Valve Tester. This ground breaking product will help every guitarist, rental company, valve amp manufacturer, guitar tech and guitar / hi-fi store across the planet.
The compact and extremely easy to use Valve Tester is a fully automatic valve tester, which performs a wide range of tests quickly and accurately. The benefits of using the Valve Tester are clear and wide reaching; users can quickly and simply match and test valves, plus receive a reliable health check as to whether their valves are good, bad or worn.
Orange Amps developed the worlds first fully automatic, portable, digital Valve Tester, to make it easy to test amp valves. Until now testing valves with little or no knowledge of valve theory was difficult, expensive and often unreliable. This product will test all popular power and pre-amp valves. Its ease of use will appeal to all valve users whether amateur, professional or in the music retail trade.
The unit has one octal and two nine pin valve sockets for different valve types; simply insert the valve to be tested into the correct socket, select the valve type from the list on the unit and press OK to test. The results are displayed clearly and concisely using LEDs and will test for a wide range of fault conditions, which could easily cause damage to other components. The simplicity of operation belies what is going on inside the box, where a CPU controlled testing system is in operation, allowing full control over all inter-electRODE switching and measurement operations.
The Orange Valve Tester incorporates patent-pending technology and really opens the door to everyone to have an extremely simple, portable, reliable, inexpensive and safe way to test valves in minutes.
