The VT1000 offers everyone an extremely simple, portable, reliable, inexpensive and safe way to test tubes.

The easy to use VT1000 is a fully automatic tube tester that performs a wide range of tests quickly and accurately. The benefits of using the VT1000 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. Until now testing tubes with little or no knowledge of valve theory was difficult, expensive and often unreliable. The VT1000 will test all popular power and pre-amp valves. Its ease of use will appeal to all tube users.

The unit has one octal and two nine pin valve sockets for different tube types; simply insert the tube to be tested into the correct socket, select the tube type from the list on the unit and press ‘START' 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.

Comments about Orange Amplifiers Tube Tester:

I delayed my purchase for over a year due to its price (hence my 4 star rating). I was about to order two EL34's because I assumed they were bad and realized I've been ordering tubes this way for years.
Enter the VT1000: I now manage my tubes from a position of power- Those EL34's were good and matched with decent gain ratings. A bad 12au7 was identified (recent purchase) and all my good tubes now have their gain rating marked on them. The dual diode preamp and phase inverter tubes have both ratings noted.
Construction- You will not believe the heft and quality of this unit. I recommend keeping it at your bedside in case of intruders.
