Re: Flash Tubes

I've hooked 'em up to NSTs in series with a 4' neon tube. The neon tube
doesn't flicker any, so I believe the discharge through the strobe tube is
pretty much constant (not a spark) although the discharge in the strobe
tube "snakes" a lot. By the way, the things run hot. You can get
long-leaded ones (recommended) at Electronic Gold Mine.
