Measure transconductance/gm and match plate current with high repeatable precision. An opportunity to verify what you buy or sell, or keep tabs on your tube and amplifier investments with total confidence and no guessing.

Triplett 3444 Tube Tester/Analyzer - Total Rebuild with military/industry grade parts selected for low ESR and low current leakage capacitors, as well as precise values for all parts including resistors, 96 hour burn-in minimum, cosmetically refurbished & electrically calibrated to the original 17 page master assembly model, not some guesstimate, or the guide found on the web. New signal and meter tubes, plus independently powered and regulated supply for the MuRata-Datel plate current meter, so there is no parasitic interference with the gm measurement. 

This is a worry free tester and analyzer. Even IF you amplifier has 'auto bias' you still need to know the health of your tubes since they are at the very heart of your investment, and auto bias will not detect leakage or shorts, or tell you if a tube is near worn out. Can you match those preamp tubes for both gm and current? If you have a moving coil cartridge, this is really important.

Read dual element tubes such as a 12ax7 or 6sn7 with the flip of one switch.

You can test a large number of tubes for plate current above 50ma. A stock 3444 can not read these tubes.

If you need a tester which can test and analyze a KT88, KT120 and KT150, 300b, 6L6GC, EL34, 6550, 7591A, 6c33c, 6sn7, 12ax7, 12au7, and many hundreds of others. This is One of the finest tube analyzers ever made. A Stock 3444 can not read these tubes for plate current accurately or any above 50ma, this one, with the custom DATEL digital current meter, can and all the way to 199.9ma. If you are familiar with a 'plate curve chart', you can plot your tubes using this tester or create new tubes setting from scratch.  The photos are Svetlana 6550, Sylvania 6dj8, Mullard el34, and 6L6GC.

This rebuild and calibration is good for a about 10,000 hours of actual in-service testing use before any 'check-up' should even be considered, that is about 20 years for most users. Your tubes are tested in class 1A conditions as per tube manufacturers data plate curve references.  The tester is in fine condition, restored deck and hardware, case have been treated with vinyl over the original fabric to give a uniform up to date finish.

After the sale help on testing by phone or email, especially for 6c33c tubes (adapter is required for this tube and is not included, but we can make one). We are there years after you buy to help you if you have a question on need tube settings, or help, on a tube you never had before. Check the feedback or ask past buyers here on Audiogon, or the many tube sellers on ebay who use our restored testers

By the early 1960's The 3444 was Preferred over Hickok testers by the Navy, Air Force, FCC, FAA, radio and TV stations, commercial air lines, and more. One of the Best Tube Tester Analyzers ever Produced in the U.S.A.

Will not test high power transmitter triodes such as the 845 or 211.

Analyzer details:
Direct Gm Readout From 0 to 30,000 Micromhos on clearly marked scales, each scale is calibrated to 0.5% or less full scale.

Read dual element tubes such as a 12ax7 or 6sn7 with the flip of one switch.

Replaceable socket savers for the octal, 9 and 7 pin sockets (above bias dial, under the cover)

Vishay balanced bridge rectified and capacitor filtered Plate & Five Filtered Screen Voltages from 12 to 250 VDC, Hickok has no filtering on any model.

Bias Voltages; 0-5 and 0-50 VDC fully adjustable and filtered to 0.5% accurate.

Plate and screen voltages up to 250vdc. Vishay balanced bridge rectified and capacitor filtered Plate & Five Filtered Screen Voltages from 12 to 250 VDC.

Plate Current Readout on automatic independent digital meter up to 199.9ma for precise tube matching.

Leakage Readout on Main Meter; 0-20 Mega ohms, not just some simple short detection. This is of major importance to protect your equipment. A one million-ohm leakage on the screen can damage your amp very quickly and Hickok will miss that (752/539/580 exception) until it reaches 250 thousand ohms leakage which is near a short level. By then you can have something burned out.

Read dual element tubes such as a 12ax7 or 6sn7 with the flip of one switch.

Replaceable socket savers for the octal, 9 and 7 pin sockets (above bias dial, under the cover)

Gm Meter isolated From direct Gm circuitry by Its own micro-ammeter 12au7 circuit. Hickok is not isolated.

Gm Circuitry calibration on-the-fly by a simple push of a button, It is Self Check Feature for most accurate readouts.

Four fixed Grid Signals 33, 100, 333, 1000 Millivolts AC Measures to less than 0.5% error, at +-5,000 Hz (independent tube circuit generated).

23 selectable AC Filament Voltages

Tested Under Voltages Encountered in Real Life Applications and at manufacturers 1A data points. Hickok at 150vdc drops to about 122 with a common 6L6GC or EL34, any KT type even lower.

Tests Most Old and New Tubes with highest and repeatable accuracy. Easy to create new tube data settings.
