Valve Amps, what are they?



Here at Audio Images we have noticed an incline on interest in Valve Amps.

But what is a Valve amp?


A valve amplifier or tube amplifier is a type of electric amplifier that uses vacuum tubes, to increase the amplitude or power of a signal. Low to medium power valve amplifiers for frequencies below the microwaves were largely replaced by solid state amplifiers during the 1960s and 1970s. Valve amplifiers are used for applications such as guitar amplifiers, satellite transponders such as DirecTV and GPS, audiophile stereo amplifiers, military applications (such as radar) and very high power radio and UHF television transmitters.
