Default 12v for 3875 and 35v for tube buffer?

I already have an IGC with a 12-0-12 based supply. I wanted to add Joe's tube buffer. As a newbie, you'll have to excuse my ignorance, but can I use the 35v supplied tube buffer with the 12v opamp supply? Thanks for any help!

the tube requires higher voltage to work, even that 35v is quite low for a tube.

Guess jsaults is referring to the JLTi http://members.ozemail.com.au/~lisaras/
If yes, there´s no reason you shouldn´t have two different supply voltages for chip and tube.
Take the appropriate tube though as I´d guess some don´t like the low voltage.

Thank you guys so much! Yeah, that is the buffer I was talking about. It was late the night I posted and I wasn't too clear, sorry 'bout that. Yeah I wondered about the low valve supply voltage but a few people that have tried it and claimed success. I guess I'll shoot for it and see. I figuired the two differing supplies wouldn't matter but it doesn't hurt to lean on wisdom of others. Money and time doesn't come easily to me, and I would hate to see the magic smoke go to heaven
Thanks again, J
