What sort of gain/Zout do you need? I have used them with a CCS load and a parafeed OPT which seems to work well.

Because it is a really linear tube as a triode, and because there are few, if any, triodes that have similar specs.

i wanna build this c3m with anode follower (RC) topology.
i will use this preamp with 6sn7-300b single ended (JE lab design).
I've heard that this tube sound great as triode, so i wanna try to build one.
My plan is B+ 300V

Please help

thanks

Do you need a pre with the JElabs?

Swapping the 6sn7 cascade with a c3m as pentode could be worthwile though...

Just my blabla

Unless I'm very mistaken, it should be able to drive the 300b's into clipping.

See here for distortion comparison between c3m pentode and 6sn7 cascade: http://www.pmillett.com/pentodes.htm

Should you be interested, schematics for c3m + 300b amps can be found here:

http://www.fortunecity.com/rivendell...cy/Legacy.html

http://www.diyparadiso.com/sedesign1.htm

Edit: Millett's page does not feature the c3m, but the measurements of other high-gm pentodes should give you a basic idea...

I think I'd swap the tubes around. Use the C3m to drive the 300B and use the 6sn7 somewhere else.

Use the C3m in triode with a CCS to drive the 300B and you won't be disappointed. In my opinion the 6SN7 is a gutless driver.
