FS: DIY 6L6GC PP integrated tube amp
2 Attachment(s)
I've had this thing for about a year, but unfortunately have to let it go to make room for some new projects. Parts are all decent quality, and I didn't skimp out on the caps or resistors. Most resistors are Vishay 1/3W film, and capacitors are Sprague "orange drop" 716P. The power supply is a Hammond 270HX tranny with a solid-state 1200V 20A diode bridge followed by a CLC filter. The capacitors are 560uF each (bypassed by film cap and bleeder resistor) and the inductor is a Hammond 193H (5H). Filaments are filtered AC.

The output is 2x 6L6GC per channel connected UL to Hammond 1645's. Thought the OPT's seems small, they are enough for the amp and don't saturate. I've managed to get a good compromise on low NFB versus distortion, and it has fairly high gain and still sounds clean.

Chassis top is rustproofed steel reinforced by aluminum. Sides and bottom are wood.

Tube complement:
4x Sovtek 6L6WXT+, 2x Sovtek 6SL7. Used lightly and rarely with plenty of life.

I spent $500 on parts alone for it, and I'm putting it up for $700. I'll ship it anywhere in the US via FedEx or USPS for the real shipping cost, NO MARKUP.

If you want more info or you want to buy, PM me for my Paypal account.

In the dark:

The blue glow is normal for beam tubes. It is phosphorescence from the electrons hitting the glass.
