Tube pulling, or as it’s sometimes known, tube rolling, is part of the reason we love our tube gear. We can try out different vacuum tubes to see what characteristics we’ve improved or gone sideways with while trying out new tubes. There’s vintage tubes, NOS tubes, and so forth. We also need to replace and refresh our vacuum tubes after so many hours of use. Over time, vacuum tubes can lose their life and luster and need to be replaced. They are, after all, the heart and soul of our vacuum tube based audio gear.
If you have tubes to replace in tight spots, such as the Stellar M1200 Monoblock amplifiers, or if you’d just like to make a clean job of it, here’s the perfect tool. The Tube Puller.
This handy device works for any small to medium sized signal vacuum tube. It is not recommended for larger, power tubes.
*This very same Tube Puller is included with the purchase of the Stellar M1200 12AU7 vacuum tube replacement kit.
