Thanks,

One other important fact that I did not intend to be remiss in reporting:

If you're providing your own transformers, please pay attention to the transformer specifications as shown on the Master Kit transformer list.

If you are providing your own chassis, the hardware included in the Basic Kit will work with chassis top plate thickness of up to 0.125".

According to the rules of this site, this thread can remain open for technical discussion, so I welcome any questions or comments regarding the technical aspects of this amplifier. Especially since the Vendor's Forum post seems to be such a dismal failure.

Scott,
Just a suggestion, but you might want to put a link to your Vendor Forum thread in your signature line.

I am still interested in a Master Kit, so consider 1 of the 25 sold. If you want to tell me the shipping charges to 66219, we can get that taken care of .

Bill

Yes, it was not obvious that you were in the vendors bazaar of the vendors forum.

Sounds great, thanks for the idea Bill. I will respond to you via PM with the shipping charges.

I'm just trying to follow the rules of this site to the best of my ability, so I'll be here and at the Vendor's forum also.

Default KT88 SE Complete Kit

Presently I own a SE KT88 which runs in triode or pentode mode, it is being used as a no feedback triode amp approx. 5w. also have a tube preamp and a 2a3 PP class A amp.

Never having built a tube amp before I am interested in the Kit because of the 2 stage design and hard wiring, would like to know the nominal primary inductance of the output transformers.

From the info provided it looks that the gap is designed for 120ma?. is this correct.

What substitute driver tube can be used instead of the 6n1pev.

The output transformers are gapped for 120mA. I'll have to get back to you with the exact figure, however I believe the nominal primary inductance to be in the 40-50H range.

I have tried the 6N23P-EV for the driver, which is supposedly the equivalent of the 6DJ8/6922/7308, and while it is compatible with the circuit, it just doesn't quite have the "sparkle" of the 6N1P-EV in this particular amplifier circuit, in my opinion.

I picked up my kit at the post office this morning. Everything looks great.

I've got some fabrication to do before I can start assembling, and it will be a few more weeks before I get my transformers, so that's gonna drive me nuts!

Thanks, Scott for making this available to everyone. I'm really looking forward to getting this up and running.
