Default HY69 in triode mode...some experience ?

Friends

I currently do experiments with forgotten tubes.
Types as 12W6, 7A5, 7B5, 12EN6 are very interesting ...
I have some HY69 and thought that would be very nice in SE, triode mode.
Anyone have experience with these tubes in triode mode, SE class A ?
I believe it should sound good, because they are DHP ...

hey-Hey!!!,
No triode experience...why bother? use that screen grid. Type HY69 is a good one; though you'll want some EL84/6V6 outputs. Run about 20% for the U-L tap, the tube parameters just like it. I tried 30, 40 and 50% U-L rigging and 20% won out...I figured after the 50% was just too much so why bother? One ov my favourite valves indeed.
cheers,
Douglas

Thanks.
I prefer the triode mode...see my 3C24 amplifier in youtube...
Find "aldovanr" in youtube.
But I will make experiences in UL mode, too.

I have some HY69s that I thought would be good in triode in push pull.
Don't need much power, so UL would be a bit too much?

hey-Hey!!!,
I got 6W from a pair. 330V B+, 10k a-a at 50% U-L. Increased to 9W on the 30% tap...hardly too much, and all this absolutely Class A. Got new OPT( same bobbin and core) with 20, 30 and 40% U-L taps and liked 20% even better.

Those same OPT later got 8001's at near 600V 110 mA idle per tube and made *MUCH* more power. HY69 amp is now getting refitted for 6JG6 horizontal output tubes.
cheers,
Douglas

For my needs, I prefer a single tube in A class.
Actually my boxes have full ranges speakers with 100dB sensibility.
2W is a lot of power in my case.
But I will put a switch for change from pentode to triode SE operation.

Douglas, I know you like pentode/UL mode on your amps,
you ever tried the HY69 in triode?
I'm guessing not!

aldovan, have sympathy for your wish to use it in SE,
but you won't get much power at all, I'm guessing?

I was thinking of trying it as a treble amp driving a TAD-2002,
so don't need much power, but do need some power.

My interest in the HY69 was,
I thought it could maybe work as a poor man's 10Y/801A
in triode, but I may just be dreaming .....

You've guessed right. I tried it up to 50% U-L and quickly found I liked lower percentage better.
cheers,
Douglas

My opinion is suspect, but I prefer the sound of triodes.
I made ​​experience with cheap pentodes, in triode mode and the results are amazing. For example, the small 6W6GT plays very well, with a sound that resembles a pure triode as a 45 or 2A3. I will experience in coming months with other cheap tubes.
The Hy69 interested me because this direct heat pentodedo not is a 807, and has a fantastic look.
I hope to get around 4W in triode mode, using an E180F in triode mode or pentode mode as driver.

Hi Aldovan,

Would you mind sharing more details about this, I just ordered a quad of 6W6GT from e-bay.

Thanks in advance, either SE, SE triode strapped or PP is fine with me ;-)

I am really enjoying a 6AV5GA triode strapped as we speak.

Eric
