Sockets / Screens / Other
The vast majority of valves require a SOCKET to be mounted within a circuit of an electronic device. The base is essentially a structure (electrical part) that allows the connection of the pins of the same valve to the circuit without being welded and, at the same time, allows its extraction, making the component easily replaceable. There is a great variety of valve sockets, the main ones are: Ceramic, Bakelite and various Pastiche. The SCREEN is nothing more than a metal cylinder (aluminum, treated steel) of various sizes that serves to cover the valve in order to eliminate or limit hum, generic noise and microphonics. In this category also OTHER or complementary parts to the valves.
