Hi Dave,

I got them from http://www.angela.com
I think it is some kind of sale.

Peter - I take it you have no real response to my questions then?
Too disastrous to your case?


James - I encourage you to try them out! I'm really enjoying the sound of my amp with the change, and for the price, you have nothing to lose.

FYI, they're also in the <a href="http://www.tubesandmore.com/new/scripts/silverware.exe/moreinfo@d:/dfs/elevclients/cemirror/ELEVATOR.FXP?item=P-T156C">AES</a> catalogue as a standard part for $10.77

How much capacitance do they have?

Cheers

Brett, I'd be happy to measure one tonight.

Yes, I think measuring Cp would go a long way towards putting the issue to rest.

Thanks. I'm curious to see how they measure.

Cheers

What "issue" are you referring to tiroth? I have already implemented them and the amp sounds quite good.

Default Imi wa desu ka

Surely the "issue" is whether each one of us would find them useful.
ie what's the capacitance...

Default SPECS.

Hi,

Looking at the specs for this chokes I wonder if this isn't turned into a swinging choke.

156C 150 8 3700 400 .50 C6H

With a DCR of 3.700 Ohm + the unknown capacitance and the 8 mA current for the stated 150H?

I'd love to see measurments here before I buy.

Cheers,

Default interwinding capacitance

is close to 60uuF

Even if I'm off by a factor of 10, the capacitive reactance of a 600uuF cap at audio frequencies is equivalent to an open circuit.

But, seeing all the interest in this measurement, my real question is why is such a low number even an issue for you when the average triode has a grid-cathode capacitance of at least 3pF??
That's 3,000uuF
