    What are your requirements, other than cheap?

    What's the problem with an app?

    I dont want my $1000 iphone hooked to a 50`s or 60`s tube amp for testing. It scares me for some reason and it may be perfectly safe. I have never used one

    I understand not wanting to connect an expensive phone/tablet to a potentially ailing piece of eqiuipment.

    How about an old mp3 player, CD player with recordings at 100, 440 and 1kHz?

    You're right to be wary. I blew an output on a mixer doing the same thing.... Turns out the Chasiss on that 40's Philco was HOT and not ground like you would assume!

    I found one of these in a vacant lot in Manhattan next to the Hudson River...

    Had a nice 5Y3GT rectifier in it.

    I would say stick with solid state when it comes to audio signal generators...
    I have a wonderful Leader LAG-26 that I really dig.

    Get a $20 Android. There's lots of other great apps too.

    Search E-bay for signal generator or function generator. Lots to be found, and you can select what suits your purpose.
