Default Help with layout of tube preamp

Hi folks,

I thought I would post a preliminary layout (conceptual) for a mic/instrument preamp that I'm designing. Without going into the details of the circuitry, can you critique my layout of components?

Thanks for your time.

The layout seems OK. Keep in mind that the heater supply is going to need some big caps, and that the heater reg is likely to dissipate a lot of heat. Additionally, for a mic pre, I'd add a B+ regulator -- even something as simple as a zener + a pass transistor will save space and work wonders.
