I am the "tube tech" and my name is Allan Søgaard
I am resident in East Jutland,Denmark and is founder af tube-amp.dk
The idea of this nerdy place comes from my fascination of tubes or as they say in the UK, valve amplifiers.
My background is also founded in a burning facination of good old authentic rock music. I am a guitarist in a pop band myself and have been playing for many years, though with some very long breaks along the way. Recently, I have also played some bass, drums and keyboard and got some experience in studio recording and technology.
As a convinced "tube-man", I have been through the whole course of various guitar amps, all transistors based. For this purpose, pedalboards and all imaginable digital equipment trying to make the "perfect" sound. As convinced, however, I realized that good sound is based on a genuine and unadulterated source, not a simulation of the same. However, I still use effects and sound formatting from digital equipment, mostly because it is practical, but the amplifier and especially the output stage must be a sizzling lava bath of radio tubes.
I am professional employed in a major company as a development engineer, and hold 30 years of experience as an electronics and product developer in my backpack. Especially in the first years, I was engaged in the development of good old-fashioned analogue electronics, including a year employment at Bang & Olufsen in the mid 80's.
My old webpage tube-amp.dk,(this one) is outdated and will stay as is. No time for updating that. Now and in the future all my activity will take place on my facebook page.
