I regularly abuse my tube amp that way - but I'm a guitarist and I'm
*supposed* to do that :-) You can't beat the smell of a hot ouput
transformer and the sight of four 6L6s glowing red-hot!

Anyway the Russians, Chinese and Indians still make the tubes, and in
fact have been increasing production lately to meet demand.
