The Magic Parts Company was established in 1984 by Mr. Thomas McNeil, who to this day remains active in his role as company owner and President. Distributors of RUBY Tubes and a full line of amp parts, accessories, tools and publications, Magic Parts specializes in the vintage tube. Our full line of vacuum tubes are the best in the industry. Serious musicians know the tone is in the tubes, and RUBY Tubes deliver.
Only a handful of factories in the world still produce vacuum tubes, and Magic Parts contracts with them directly to produce a line of innovative and quality products made to our specifications. Mr. McNeil meets with factory engineers to discuss ways to utilize new technologies to maintain and improve the quality of the tenacious tube, which persists little changed over a century since its inception.
Once completed, tubes are sent to us for a battery of comprehensive testing. At our US-based warehouse we use custom-designed equipment for precision and accuracy in our readings. Each tube is evaluated on a series of performance standards and features such as dependability, microphonics, mechanical noise, plate current and transconductance. Tubes are also independently inspected by hand during quality control checks.
RUBY Tubes may be found in all brands of amplifier equipment, along with other tube-powered products - everything from microphones to digital clocks! The quality of our product represents us at Magic Parts, and so we are fastidious about anything that leaves through these doors with our name on it. Consequently, we can confidently offer one of the best warranties in the industry.
