    Hello,

    I have a Sano 2x12 tube amp with 7591 power tubes in it. They have a blue glow to them. Is this a sign of trouble or is it somewhat normal? I do not see that with my other tube amps.

    What they said. Blue Glow is not an indication of anything bad, but it doesn't guarantee that the tubes are OK either;)

    Blue is actually high quality. It's the gas inside the vacuum. Pretty sweet!

    A 'bad' tube burns orange/reddish to red. :p that's not good.
