Default Pse El34


I got 2 pcs power trafoes 350VAC 300 mA (no CT) + 6,3VAC 5A and 2 pcs 10H 300 mA chokes and 12 pcs new/used EL34 tubes. I got the parts for close to nothing.

I have decided to build 2 mono PSE EL34 amplifiers but i can't find any schematics. Help wanted.

To get parallel single ended. Just start with single single ended . . Then double your output device, halve your cathode resistor (common to both devices or just use on each the same value as before), double the current capacity of your OPT, double the power supply capacitance, halve the output transformer's primary impedance requirement, and expect double the miller capacitance at the outputs grids.

Each el34 can therefore be biased as if it were alone.

Hi Benny,

for example have a look at that one from Andrea Ciuffoli, using 4x EL34 in parallel SET

Be sure you want some serious output iron to cope with the high quiescient current.

If in doubt, just measure.
