    You might be a Dynaco tube fanatic IF ..

    Post by Bob Latino on Fri Jul 11, 2014 10:35 am

    1. You can remember the pinouts for every tube ever used in a Dynaco amp but forget your anniversary.
    2. You've ever been thrown out of the local land fill for pulling up trash looking for Dynaco tube gear.
    3. You cry when your kids get you a matched quad of EL34's for Fathers Day.
    4. You always walk around with a pin straightener in your pocket.
    5. You can set the bias on your amp but could never seem to remember how to set the clock on your old VCR.
    6. You say you are going out in the morning to get some "Mullards" and your family thinks you are going duck hunting. (mallards)
    7. Because your young baby has heard it so much, (his/her) first word is "Dynaco".
    8. Rather than look around, you read a Dynaco assembly manual at a nude beach.
    9. You refuse to listen to a band that you know uses "solid state" amps.
    10. Your VTA driver tube collection is insured with "Lloyds of London". (sKiZo)
    11. Instead of your kids photos, you have pictures of your Dynaco amps in your wallet.
    12. You own a tricked out $2,500 Dynaco amplifier and drive a $500 car.
    13. Your wife says "is that one of those new Tung-Sol KT150 output tubes tube in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me?"

    With the house engulfed in flames, you risk your life to save your Dynaco gear before your wife & dog.

    You pray that your future ex-wife or widow doesn't sell your tubes for what you told her you paid for them.

    Smart woman. Mine doesn't ask anymore, either. Honesty is the best policy, so the less said, the better.
