In case you're interested, I just finished an amp using a C3o (6.3V version of C3m) running resistor loaded as a pentode, cap-coupled to 300B.

Better looking than mine. Congrats!

I miss something and sorry for not reinventing the wheel - I used EF861 instead of C3g. Specs read Ug1=+9V, while there are schematics of preamps with this tube as an voltage amp + driver biased with cathode resistor. And Ug1 is set to -2.5V In respect to cathode. Is the latter correct?

Question answered, after I had taken curves.

I cut open aluminium cover of C3gs - both glass bulbs were broken.
Fortunately new E180F has come this evening

Where am I going wrong?

The trace comes from E180F anode, 10V/div. Input signal 0,7V RMS.

I used yellow LEDs for cathode bias. Vg1 measures 1.9V both tubes. Anode DC voltage is 145V and 147V. If I read the trace properly, tubes goes into cut off. Right?

Thumbs up Fired the amp with E180F BJT CCS and 6C4C

Still things to be corrected, yet fine results right from the start.

There is no resistor in the cathode - I used yellow LED which gives 1.9V, so needed additional voltage drop due to lack of proper model.
MPSA92 is replaced with F241.
