6V6 GT Cascading by Yukio Miyamoto

The 6V6 beam powered tetrode can lay claim to being the electronic component with the longest record of continuous production; 1934-date. Will it make the ton and get the telegram from Her Majesty? Robust and able to be highly over rated it is a common part of the favourite amplifiers of guitarists round the world: Fender, Gibson, Champ and Princeton typically over rate them to deliver around 40watts RMS.

Valves/tubes radically changed the way we live. Around 1904 Englishman John Fleming, then of Edison, was considering why the filaments of Edison incandescent light bulbs always failed at the cathode end. He realised this was because the electrons boiling off the filament were heading towards the anode thus diminishing the cathode. Fleming was the first to realise this flow could be manipulated in the process of amplification. Thermionic valves/tubes were conceived.

Our t-shirts are unique for being wholly made with CoolMax freshFX. CoolMax is a patented fibre designed to wick perspiration and accelerate moisture evaporation, keeping wearers cooler and drier. This wicking feature of the fabric is made possible by micro channels engineered into the profile of and surface of the fibre. These channels are cleverly dimensioned to exploit the surface tension and capillary action of water. Being physical properties of the fibre, these channels endure and do not significantly diminish with wear or washing.

Antimicrobial (freshFX) treatment stops the propagation of odour producing bacteria. This is achieved by embedding silver salt crystals into the structure of the fibre. FreshFX treatment like the wicking is permanent and does not leach out with everyday use. These characteristics ensure the shirts remain cool, dry and odour free regardless of what you might do in them. Performance of the fabric is guaranteed through a certified and monitored manufacturing process.
