Hi guys. It's that time of year again when it's getting colder outside and my DIY interests shift towards vacuum tubes...
I definitely don't need another tube amp. Actually I don't really need another tube preamp, but they are fairly cheap and LOTS of fun to build.
A couple of years ago when I was at DIY S. Dakota I bought some old tube stuff off the swap meet table from Mike Jennings for only $5. Turns out I got a very nice power transformer, a pair of cool vintage smoked glass 6V6GT tubes, a multi-section high voltage cap, and a decent 5Y3 rectifier tube.
Over at diyaudio.com there is an epic 6V6GT line preamp thread from a guy named Salas. I have all the parts to build this design, sans the miada regulators. That doesn't bother me at all. I like to keep tube circuits as simple as possible and feel they sound just fine or better that way. So my power supply will be more my design. Otherwise the basic circuit is his design.
I will post a butt load of build pictures here along the way. I bought a nice hickory board today that has a ton of grain!!! That board and a piece of 0.0625" aluminum plate I have will form the case.
More to follow Gents.
