Cool Hi there fellow amperes

Hello. This is my first post here although I have visited this site many a times gleaning info from it. I've spent the last year making a tube amp for my car and figured it's about time to get some expert input from you guys. I have finalized a PIC driven HV power supply that drives a 6BQ5 PP amp. The PS was the hard part as I used a schematic of the Dynaco ST-35 for the amp with a couple changes (dual cathode resistors instead of the single) I have one channel working in the garage and it brings a tear to the eye! Not bad for my first tube amp. But, I will have lots of questions for you guys soon!

Thanks for the great site.

Thanks for coming out of your 'Garage'.

Exactly what we need: Blue Glow!
We've got some in the PassLabs Forum with the Blue Led,
And now some fresh one in the Tube Section.

Welcome to the forum.

Hi there fellow amperes
Welcome to diyAudio

I know nothing about tubes, but there are many on the site that do! Seems like a challenging first project, a tube amp for a car, how do you cope with all the vibration issues?

Modern cars are fuel injected, so they're far more tolerant of vibration than ones with carburettors and float chambers.
