Hi,

12AU7 doesn't overdrive all that nice, may be one reason they are scarce.

Any particular reason for using the 'AU7? Got a boxfull?

Cheers!

Hi,

Well, I have never tried a 12AU7 in "starved plate" mode, so I'm intrigued as to results

*adds to list of experiments to breadboard this week*

Cheers!
