40WTriode/60Watt Ultralinear amp
 
Has anyone built the 40watt triode/ 60 watt Ultralinear amp by Joseph Norwood Still which appeared in the Glass Audio issue Vol10/No2/1998 ?

If you did how did it sound ?
It uses a 6267 pentode at the input and 6SN7 driver and 6550 output tubes. I wonder if you could use an EF86 pentode instead and EL34 tubes at the output with the same component values ?
How much less power would the EL34 give?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Quite likely like most similar amps.

The EF86 would work but NOT the EL34 with the same component values.

I was never impressed with the EL34 as compared to the US 6CA7 or 6550...the EL34 most often sounded like a tube on the wrong dosis of steroids...plainly put: rather anemic.

Just my two cents,;)
