Try .02 ohms and see the change that is a high value for film polyprop caps.

The standard Darling tubes, I suppose: a pair of 1626's and a 12SL7GT.

I have a PCB I laid out for the Darling and built the chassis to drop it in.

It is very clean. Probably because the heater voltage is DC.

Hi, I am a newbie. Can someone recommend an amp package kit to start with? This way I don’t have to first look for a schematic, then transforms, tubes…Since I am a beginner I am open to suggestions. If I am in the wrong thread please show me the way. I’ve looked through other threads, most places I have no idea what other are talking about. Thanks. Looking forward to learning something new here.

If you do a search on "Darling tube amp" you'll find plenty on the 1626. Some might argue the 1626 is the Darling.

It is a beautiful "bottle-style" triode made for, I believe, a radio for a WWII-era bomber plane. The government unloaded a ton of the NOS tubes when solid-state swept in.

They show up on eBay fairly regularly — if you buy them in bulk (a dozen or so at a time) you can get them for between $5 and $10 each.

I'm hoping to put together a few Darling kits based on my PCB, FWIW.
