Default 1N5048 diode?

Had a quick look for data sheets on this diode and couldn't find anything. Not sure if these are suitable for my SS power supply.

I decided to try this out in the Wheatfield headphone amp with 6080 running at about 270 B+.

Got a problem with huge amounts of hum/noise.

psu:

275V (secondary)

47uf
225ohms
680uf
60ohms
680uf

just to note;

6080 is running at 90 mA.

Also have tried a 6CQ7 for the input tube as it has an mu of 20.

Are you sure you mean 1N5048, and it isn't a typo? (Because the commonly available 1N5408 is a 3A 1000V diode which is commonly used to rectify the B+ for valve amplifers).

yes a typo.

Sorry. In the middle of working at the office while quickly looking at threads!!

1n5408. No wonder I couldn't find data.

Yes 3 amps.

Got something wrong in the circuit on the breadboard. Have to check it all out.

It's making huge amounts of noise.
