Without seeing the schematic, it's difficult to tell what, if any, benefit there would be to a regulated supply. One thing to keep in mind though, if you're using pentodes, if you regulate the B+, you also need to regulate the screen grid supply...

Hi,

I suppose this is the one:

BRUTE FORCE BY ERIC BARBOUR.

BTW, never had any noise from a glowdischarge tube...
Maybe it's just some OD3s?

It sure is brute force with a //ed 6BL7 and 12SN7...and they call it minimalism? Hmmm...

Cheers,
