When Orange Amplification proudly launched the DIVO VT1000 Valve Tester at Winter NAMM 2013 they knew they were on to something good, but little did they realise the storm it would create in the music industry over the coming months. The VT1000 has become one of the most talked about music accessories in years and has now sold over 10,000 units worldwide.

The VT1000 is a compact, easy to use, fully automatic valve tester where users can easily match and test the wear of valves. Its appeal has been far reaching with guitarists and their techs, rental companies, valve amp manufacturers and Hi-Fi specialists everywhere quickly realising its immense benefits.

The VT1000 won the 2013 Music & Sound Award for Best Accessory and also won the approval of magazine reviewers too. MusicRadar.com believes it is ‘the first and possibly only valve tester that anyone can use without any specialist knowledge’ and gave it four stars in its review. According to Guitar and Bass magazine ‘If your interest in valve amplifiers goes beyond merely playing through them, it’s a wonderful tool to have’ and scored it ninety-one out of a possible one hundred’.

It has been with the music industries guitar techs that the VT1000 has been making big waves. Michael Kaye (The Who, Paul Simon, Shania Twain) commented “Orange’s VT1000 saves time and money - and helps get your amplifier working it’s best, the way you need it.” Mike Clement (Tony Iommi, David Gilmour Band, Motörhead, Iron Maiden, Jeff Beck Band) agreed when he said ‘The Orange VT1000 valve tester will become an essential piece of kit for the professional guitar / amp technician’s workbench…. in both the workshop and out on the road. The VT1000 is going to make life a lot easier from now on!’. Drew Foppe (Fleetwood Mac, Deftones) said ‘It has already paid for itself in tube matching fees and tubes that I would have simply ended up getting rid of because I didn’t know if they were any good or not.’

It’s not only the techs that have recognised how great this new tool is. Mastodon guitarist Bill Kelliher observed ‘I found the Orange tube tester easy to comprehend and incorporate in the testing of all the tubes in my amp giving me a value to each and able to match tubes for best performance in a nice small package’ and John Henry’s in-house repair specialist Dan Knight said it’s ‘A great little bit of kit that is simple to use, does the job and is used daily without any problems - it makes prepping & repairing amps a whole lot easier’.

To find out why SonicState.com said ‘I think there will also be a large group of people who will think the VT1000 is one of the best things since sliced bread’ go to http://www.orangeamps.com/ and find out what all the fuss is about.
