Default Novice SSE build

Hello all, I'm planning a sse build and would like to go over some of the parts with anyone that will listen. This will be my first se amp. Looking for budget friendly parts where possible.
for output transformers: EDCOR - GXSE15-8-5K 74$
for power transformer: EDCOR - XPWR033-120 59$
for choke: EDCOR - CXC100-5H-200mA 39$

6l6gc tubes cathode resistors- 750

how does this look?

Hi, I moved your thread to the tubes forum as I suspect that this wasn't specific to the commercial tubelab forum

Looks fine to me.....I would suggest 500V rated caps, assuming your target B+ will end up somewhere between 450 and 500V.

They can be a little hard to find, but they are around.

Yeah, your B+ will definitely be on the hot side with that power transformer combined with the lower DCR of that choke. I would say that 500V caps are a must.

Looks like you'll also be set up for KT88 operation if you desire.....perhaps pick up a few different cathode R values.
