Lots of them on ebay. I'd use two VR75 in series, because they have a beautiful orange glow. The VR150 (0D3) has a soft purple glow. Also nice.

Yes I see lots of them on ebay but where is a trust seller and what manufacture look for?
I don't have a lot of space just for two tubes rear the OPT so VR150 is my choice.

Tomorrow I will do scope measurements, good night guys and thanks for all your support.

Try reversing the leads on the Filament to the 26 Tube...this should clear the Hum...if not try taking out the 2 X 22 ohm resistors and placing a (Humdinger) 100 ohms pot across the filament supply with the middle leg connected to the 2.2K Bias Resistor

Hello guys,

I have some questions if you do not mind.
My raw DC supply out of the filter is 19.4V (same for the other channel). When using umbilical to connect to main preamp, I get 14.4 V at the input of Rod Coleman regs. With the 26 tube and 10 ohm connected (pin 4 is + of the filament regulator, then tube, then pin1 to 10 ohm resistor then negative of the regulator then to 0V system ground), I get 1.15 volts across the filament of the 26 tube(pin 1 and 4), 8.52V across 10 ohm resistor.

At this point, I cannot adjust the filament current anymore using the pot on the board (also true with the other channel). I am wondering why?

I tested the regulators, with the heatsinks of course, and I can adjust the current to about 1.47Amps. Supply is 12 vrms through CLC connected to SUPPLY of RC regulators, then filament reg out connected to a 50W 1.5 ohm resistor.

What could be my problem?

regards,

Abe

Most likely the voltage drops under the 2A load. Save everyone time and show us a drawing of your filament supply, with details and measurements on the drawing.

Oh yeah, another possibility is that the regulators are oscillating.

Iko,

Thanks! I think I figured it out. I tested the regulators with 18 Vrms(24 Vdc) trafo, not 12 Vrms(14Vdc). With ~4Vdc filament board drop, there is no way I will get 10V to the 10 ohm cathode resistor using the 12Vrms trafo.

Let me change the trafo first to what I have on my PSUD schematic. I don't know why I got the 12V trafo in there and I will report back. And if I do, I will have the schematic and measurements included.

regards,
Abe
