I ordered a couple Simple PP boards, one parts kit and a Simple SE board.
Just took it all to the post office. Excess postage was refunded via Paypal.

I would like to order a Simple SE board and Kit if possible
I don't have a parts kit for the SSE board just yet. Digikey and Mouser no longer stock the Panasonic 500 volt electrolytic caps that I have used in the past. It looks like Panasonic may not be making them currently. 500 volt caps have been rather hard to find, but I got some Nichicons in to test. I do not want to put them in parts kits and sell them until I have built an amp and tested them. With my current work schedule that might be a while.

Hi George

I am interested in building a Simple Push Pull, I'm a novice to this so using one of your kits seems like a great way to get my self into this without getting tied in too many knots!

I have a few queries:

Most importantly do you have any available?

Cost: From what I can see here the kit is $65 and int'l shipping is $15 paid by paypal via the address on Tubelab.

If I am successful with the build, I would like to build another and use the pair as monoblocks, is it possible to run both channels on the amp in parallel and is it relatively straightforward? Apologies if that's a dumb question.

Finally, I have looked on the site but couldn't see any build notes or a BOM for the SimPP, again sorry if I am being blind.

Cheers

Matt

Matt,

I found it from the Home page. Click on the first link you see under the completed Simple PP amp. You probably know board is $35 too so $100 total if that still stands.

Parts Lists

There is a discussion in this form under the long Simple PP thread on Mono use. Might be better and less $ to purchase the right output transformers for that now.

Regards,

Randy

Hit the first link under the completed Simple PP amp in the pic,

Tubelab Home

Then to the bottom of the "Getting Started Page"

Getting Started

Another thought if you want a bit more power on this board might be to try 6973 output tubes as EH as been making them for a few years now and they are said to sound great. Lower distortion than the EL84's too. Might have to wire the sockets off the board as the connections might be different. For paralleled EL84/ 6973 you could use a single 5K Prim output trans for each channel. Hammond makes a really nice OPT for this in the 100W 5K PP 1650R which is a great one for the $ . Mentioned on the AA & AK forms as really great!

Good luck,

Randy

Thank you very much Randy.

I have to say just looking through this thread and at the Tubelab site itself, there seems to be a lot of goodwill and a generally fun, helpful and knowledgeable vibe floating around, which is part of the reason to have a go at this - to learn from other peoples knowledge and hopefully be able to share any things I can pick up.
I am definitely a novice electronically, but my fabrication and design background might allow me to contribute or assist here.

Cheers

Matt

Yes, I still have boards and parts kits, your order to the UK goes to the post office tomorrow.

Yes, the board is $35, parts kit is $65 and shipping is $8 in the US and $15 to the rest of the world. I intend to keep those prices the same until my supply of electrolytics runs out. The prices of electrolytics has gone up considerably since I bought enough for a hundred kits about a year and a half ago. I have only sold about 20 kits so far, so there are plenty left.

My web site is a bit messed up since I had to quickly remove all traces of the name "Simple" when used with the common abbreviation for "Single Ended" due to a legal threat. I have had little time to fix it, but a total rebuild is coming with some new stuff too. The pages are all there but some links are broken.

I will be out of town from next week until sometime in January, so there will be no time to build a test amp. I am making arangements for someone else to build one while I am gone though.

I always take boards and kits with me so I can ship them from wherever.
