That's good news! Not that I want more power but it makes me feel relaxed.

Just finished my latest project. A 45 single ended amp with 2 24A triode strapped tubes in the preamp.

All cloth wire and cable laced point to point wiring.

what a beauty! love that nice wiring loom and I didn't know they made those Russian caps in such a pretty colour Do you happen to have more pictures

Very, very interesting!
Would you mind share the scheme and your sound impressions?
I'd like to build one too, and maybe with an option to use 46 tubes as well (like the old "Ragtop" amp).
Thank you in advance!

Thank you! Of course there are more pictures

As far as I know the only russan PIO caps that come in that nice blue colour are the 250nF 630V ones.

The circuit is really very simple. The 24A screen grids are connected to the anode with 100 ohm resistors and biased at 2.5mA and 100V, I have attached the tube curves below so you can see. The 45s are biased at 33mA and 250V with a 6K load giving about 1.3Watts.

The preamp tubes are really nice but nobody ever uses them. They are very linear as you can see in the curves, and plentiful and cheap. The biggest downside is the high heater current.

Default First ever tube circuit!

So I became interested in Valves/Tubes a long time ago, but never got much further than drawing a load line.

I finished a first ever tube circuit this week. A very simple textbook cathode biased voltage amplifier stage.

Using a load line I get fairly close to reality, biasing voltage isn't quite right, and the cathode bypassing capacitor isn't large enough, but it functions fairly well.

Near to centre bias I get a voltage gain of around 41 times, which isn't too far shy of the 2/3rds Mu (mu is 70).

A great little circuit built in 15mins! I'm hooked!
