I thought it would give some of your tube elitists a good read on something interesting.

Meh, tube amps are overrated (and I play a tube amp myself). Solid state technology is the way of the future (that includes digital).

And my Backgammon board is better than your chess board!

Seriously, that was interesting.

is it maybe a bad idea to play chess with peices that are at that kind of voltage...

That's what I was thinking. That and the fact that you are bound to break one in your hand sooner or later.

Hm, maybe certain chess positions and strategies can give you different tones?

Although SS amps do have their purposes, so do tube amps. Neither are better than the other, but SS are definitely no the "way of the future" as you put it. Both SS and tube will always have their place in the world of guitar gear and neither will ever replace the other.

TS: That is a very interesting item... I imagine it costs more than a normal person would ever want to pay for a chess board though

Edit:

I wasn't even thinking about that lol - wouldn't they be too hot to even touch, therefore making the set useless?

Wouldn't the tubes, if left in long enough, eventually heat to the point where it'd burn one's hand?

Very interesting though.

You could probably hook up a preamp to it and run some caps and resistors and get a quirky sounding amp.

I would love to see someone try to make an amp outta that thing.

or figure out some way of the position of the tubes effecting the tones

Knight to Queen 4.

Checkmate!

DAMMIT! (Breaks tube in hand)

That actually looks pretty cool. Although dangerous too.

Guys, now that I look closer, it's a triple rectifier.

A million tubes, and no tone at all.

Nice gimmick. Too bad its too cumbersome to actually use, and too expensive too maintain.

Could one maybe stop saying 'one' all the time? It makes one sound like the 'per se' kid from South Park, per se.

But yeah, you'd probably burn your hand after a while... ouch...

They don't have to actually do anything, so they're probably running at a low enough power level that they don't get so hot.
