Things things are absolute trash. My tubes ran hotter and took longer to cool down. 10* hotter after 10 minutes of cool down. Unless you're amp chassis itself is bouncing around, you don't need anything like this.

These went into a 1949 Tweed pro clone. While I’ve always liked the sound of 6SC7 tubes, they can be microphonic in a combo amp. I did notice a difference right away, but speak to me in 100, 000 miles when I’ve worked the amp hard. It’s a very inexpensive item that may make a difference long term.

Great investment!
They are cheap and easy to install.
Tried them on an old Crate Palomino V36 head that was a tad noisy and voila! Quieted the tubes down nicely. From there I thought to myself ‘shipping is almost more expensive that the product, let’s buy more”. Three or four orders later, I have installed them on a Red Bear MK-60 (made it quieter), an early silverface Fender Vibro Champ (did help), Hughes Kettner Attax 100 Head (no change but they’re in), Jet City 22H (slight improvement). About to order for 3 more amps.

Point is: will help with noisy tubes. Installed them on quiet tube with the idea that I will not be able to tell if they ever go noisy.

Word of advise: on some amps, the rings might give off a slight smell of burnt rubber the first time you use them. Remember, you’re installing a rubber ring on a red hot tube.

Big two thumbs up from me
