Thank you for the schematic.
The amp is working perfectly, no ham or any other kind of noise, although it is connected to 107 dB speakers (avant-garde duo).
I asked the schematic in order to modify some points.
Thanks again.

try to tighten up the bolts on the power traffo...if that does not help...you will need to dismantle that traffo from the amp and put a wooden wedge(popsicle stick types) between the core and the coil...then dipping into a bath of insulating varnish will kill that noise once and for all...

See a few posts back 270V AC secondary on the power tranny to give a VCC of +330V. 6 off EL84 will want 150mA DC minimum for each channel.
EL84 draw 0.76 Amps heater current each => 4.6 Amps + 0.3 Amps for the input/phase splitter, 6.3V @ 5 Amps (min.) for the Heater winding for each channel Double these currents if building a single power supply stereo amp.

A pair of Ultralinear EL84 needs a 8K Raa Output Tranny. 3 pairs will want approx. 8K/3 = 2700 Ohms Raa and a power rating of 55 to 60 watts. Raa=3K3 Output Trannies are reasonably common and would be fine. 43% Ultralinear taps.

Hammond 1650K Output Transformer.
50 W
3,400 ct
318 ma.

One Electron BFT-1B Power transformer.

These may work I had them on my list of possibilities.

I have been thinking along similar lines but fixed bias. I admit that power wise one is probably better off at this stage with something like EL34 PP but I like EL84's and all those tubes sure would look pretty
Of course I don't need another amplifier but that never stopped me before.

None of us are leaving this world alive. Enjoy it responsibly as you may.
