VIDEO: Randall Smith ~ Tube Manufacturing, Testing and 'Tube Town'
MESA/Boogie Founder, Designer and President Randall Smith walks us through Tube Town and explains the processes involved in Mesa's advanced tube testing system – nicknamed ROBO-TUBE. Developed by Aerospace Engineers to our demanding specs, only the highest quality and most consistent vacuum tubes are tested, hammer-tested, passed, matched and finally labeled with the Mesa Engineering logo and color code.
Randy explains some of the tests performed by ROBO-TUBE as well as some in-depth insights into vacuum tube construction processes. Enjoy!
