Default Amp Photos?

I've been hanging around for a while and it's great to see the pics of the latest amps you guys are coming up with. I was wondering if there was a collective gallery for everyone's projects? Has anyone ever tossed this idea around?

Thanks,
Cory

Ah, sounds like a good idea - I think there was one somewhere, either the prettiest or ugliest amp thread, in either case it would be a good sticky thread for this forum. It could quickly get very long so I'd suggest keeping it to 2 or 3 posts per amp, no discussion, and some background about the amp in the posts. Mods?

Well no time like the present

Here's my latest effort, uses PP triode/UL 807s, with 6SN7 drivers and EF37A pentodes in the front end. Level indicator is an EM81 magic eye, and works very well (driven off the speaker terminal.)

Still tweaking, but it sounds awesome, even with no negative feeback (yet.)

That sounds reasonable enough in itself, I would suggest maximum maybe 3 photos per amp, back, front, and 1 internal pic, with a little background text. This would limit bandwidth bloat, and keep things reasonable for dialup users, as well as giving a standard format.

I would also suggest keeping any discusion on seperate threads, that should be linked to from the last photo posted. Then the pic thread does not get bogged down with tech. discussion and lose track. People could also just link from other theads to their pics in this thread, to avoid duplicate pic posts.

If this works, we could use the same format in other areas as well.

OK folks, the ball's in your court, lets see someone start the new thread! Then we can see about making it sticky later, depending on results.

And another shot...

My main concern is that the 807s are too close together, I was originally going to use EL34s....

Default first attempt

Here my first attempt to build a tubeamp. Just finished.
Nothing fancy, but sounds very good (al least to me.....
)
1x12ax17 and 2x6bq5 (triode strapped). tube rectifier. no feedback.
Driving Buschhorns MKII (with Fostex).
Design kept very simple (lack of tools and no special skills.....).

Awfully nice for a first try

Here's my lastest project, not mine it's for my brother, quad 6L6 PPP. Trying to stabilize NFB right now. Don't have a top pic (rest assured it's shiny and nice)

Here is my latest (and first). A single ended EL84 (triode mode) with a 5687 driver. Works great with my full range fostex.

Great pics guys! Shifty, I really dig your layout I'll have to snap a few of my current amp.

So, if there's no objection, I'll start a photo's thread where we can post pics and a quick description, and then have a link at the top of that first post to a Photo Discussion thread? Any objections?

Cory

Talking EM81 - Dual indicators

Hello folks.

I'm brand new here, and not new to electronics, but I am new to my new found hobby, tube amps!!!

I recently built a poddwatt EL84 PP stereo amp and I love the sound. I have a pair of EM81's and thought I would give the amp some bling as either VU meters, or level meters.

Which do you guys think is better and less intrusive to the amp to use???

Do any of you guys have any schematics for this???
While searching, I saw that shifty as one on his amp.

I think this site is awesome and most of you guys probably forgot more than I could hope to learn!!!

Cheers,
Shop dog
