The Orange DIVO VT1000 Valve Tester is one bit of kit that no working guitarist should be without. Saving your gig from bad tone, and potentially saving your amp from a costly blowout too, the Orange Tube Tester allows you to check the health of your tubes, and help you to match pairs in order that neither one in the pair is working harder than the other!

Managed by a clever, computerised system internally, the Divo VT1000 is able to test all the main preamp and power amp valves found in guitar tube amplifiers.

We’ve heard initial pricing of £349, which might sound a little pricey, but when you think about preventing damage to expensive tube amps, and the ease and convenience of using the Orange Valve Tester, we think it probably makes sense for many guitarists. Particularly those who are gigging night after night!
