Default valve buffered gainclone questions


id like to build a tube buffered gainclone, can anyone direct me to a easy to follow site that has a parts list.

i've built a normal gainclone already in the past using lm3875s, i was wondering how the sound differs when you put a tube buffer? is it like day and night?

and also, how does resistors affect the sound of the amp?

I have a VBIGC page on Decibel Dungeon that should help you although there is not a full parts list.

Sound of a VBIGC is different, not necessarily better or worse than other GC's!

Resistors can make a small difference depending on where they are used. Play safe and mix different types to avoid one type 'dominating' the sound!
The truth need not be veiled, for it veils itself from the eyes of the ignorant.
