A politically correct answer would say that each amplifier needs its 
own suppressor, most likely you find in amplifiers all sort of 
suppressors or no suppressor at all.

Often suppressors are unavoidable, but not only an effective solution 
exists, there are more, so a cut and try products (something that works 
with something that is available) is used with old glass tubes or 
anyway with tubes that have big feedback.

More than often suppressors are instead "included" as something that 
people is accustomed to find out but not really needed, the amplifier 
would be inherently stable at the frequency in use, with or without
