Warnings and Disclaimer:    

Tube Amplifiers, and related products are electrical products that use extremely high and potentially fatal voltages.  Used improperly they can be dangerous and cause serious personal injury and death.  Due to stored energy such equipment is dangerous even when turned off or unplugged. Amplifier service and repair work including tube replacement should only be performed by suitably qualified personnel.  Tone Tubes and its staff disclaim all liability for injury or property damage arising from use of its products, or information provided on this website.

Never operate an amplifier after replacing the power tubes, without having the amplifier's bias checked and adjusted in accordance with OE Manufacturer's specifications.  If you have questions about biasing, take the amp to a qualified technician. 

Terms and Conditions:

All of our products are fully tested prior to shipment.  Tubes are subjected to over 20 electrical performance tests in accordance with product specifications in order to ensure that only high quality products are shipped.  Tone Tubes shall not be held responsible for equipment that is damaged from the use of tubes or other parts purchased from us.  The customer shall check with the original equipment manufacturer regarding equipment specifications, including tube selection, correct installation and biasing procedures.  Tone Tubes reserves the right to amend any and all policies, terms and conditions at any time and without notice, and such amendments are effective immediately upon posting.  Please ensure you review our policies, terms and conditions frequently as continued use of this website constitutes acceptance of any new terms.  Tone Tubes do not warrant product availability, and shall not be liable for direct or indirect losses incurred as a result of product non-availability.  Tone Tubes may disrupt or terminate services and products offered on this website without notice to you, and without liability.  Whilst every precaution has been taken to ensure accuracy of information provided on this website, Tone Tubes does not warrant that the information is error-free, and shall not be liable for direct or indirect losses arising as a result of such errors.  This website may link to independent third-party websites and services.  Tone Tubes do not warranty any third-party service, and shall not be liable for direct or indirect losses arising from use of these sites.  Tone Tubes reserves the right to temporarily suspend, or permanently terminate, or otherwise refuse to permit you access to our services, without notice and liability, and at our sole determination, for any reason.  Upon suspension or termination, you continue to be bound by our terms and conditions.  You agree that any claim, dispute or legal action against Tone Tubes shall be decided exclusively by a court located within the Nelson Mandela Bay Metropole.
