SPICE model for 6AK5 wanted!
Hi,
I need a Berkeley SPICE 3f4 compatible model for 6AK5 pentode or equivalents (EF95  European, 6J1P  Russian, 6F32  "TESLA"). Thank you!

Here is a model for 6AK5 that I have developed. The data I have does not include control grid current, so the model is not accurate in that respect. Also, I dont know if this is 3F4 compatible or not, I have forgotten all the conversions. It works with LTSpice. If it is not 3F4 compatible, then some day I will do a translation, but not today.
