Hi all,

Here are some links to images of my newest conquest! Definately light years ahead of my first project.

Thank you Steve. All of the agonizing over parts selection and color and cussing....etc, were worth it. Now if I can be as successful with my 5687 buffered linestage I will be a really happy tubehead.

Default Ah ha.

Wait till your next project,

Just kidding. It takes along time to do things. I just spent several MONTHS upgrading my preamp. You are doing just fine.

Very pretty!

Signal lines crossing at right angles...

AC lines crossing at right angles...

Is that "Tea for the Tillerman" I see in the first photo?



Best,

Hi DrDeville. That is indeed "Tea for the Tillerman". Good eyes!! I thought that I had done everything much better than I did with my first amp but you what? This amp has more hum than my first humble project does. Go figure huh? When I say hum I mean from the filament wiring. It is a very low level hum that you can only hear from about a foot away from the loudspeaker, which is 97 dB 1w/1m, so it don't take much. I'm going to run a voltage divider from the B+ to ground and bias the heaters up about 40 volts or so and see if that makes any difference. I'm also going to get a bright flashlight and see if I can spot any cold solder joints. The hum seems to subside somewhat after the amp fully warms up which tells me I have a bad joint (resistor?) somewhere. I may swap some tubes around also. Thank you very much for the compliments. Cheers.
