Re: Carverfest 2018 Tube Amp Build Update

Talked to Bob again today. He got going discussing output tube choices, and he keeps coming back to the 6550s as his favorites for these. About as powerful as the KT-88s, but even better 'K' specs (KT=Kinkless Tetrode). RR I've heard Bob speak highly of.....in his words.... "the mighty 6550" during...

Re: Carverfest 2018 Tube Amp Build Update

I was planning on no tubes at all per the original talking points of a refund. I don't want to add confusion so I will settle for KT88's since the project is going over budget. Bob is doing us a HUGE! favor at $650 per amp, so no complaints. I have twelve KT120's in my Cherries so I can swap out whe...

Re: 2018 Carverfest Tube Power Amplifier Build

Uncle Meat am I reading this right. The 6L6 and or KT-88 has a lower 3 harmonic distortion rate compared to the EL34. And the human ear picks upon 3rd harmonic distortion more than any other? End result I might should be looking for a Beam Tetrode tube instead of the EL34 Pentode type tube? Thanks f...

Cool. Anything in the 25 to 45wpc would be awesome!

Just don't tell anybody I'm looking for lower power...I might get banned from Carverfest. :-$

Re: 2018 Carverfest Tube Power Amplifier Build

Any guess on power output with the EL34's? I have lots of high power amps, with these amps I'm looking for the sweetest sound I can get.

The Vintage EL34's are affordable compared to vintage KT88's or 6550's.

Re: 2018 Carverfest Tube Power Amplifier Build

Just making sure that the EL34 / 6CA7 type tube will work in this amp??

Without tube socket changes??

Just bias adjustment only??

Looking at some Mullard xf2 EL34 1965 vintage nos tubes.

SNOOP help a brotha out I got the tube fever and the only cure is more vintage tube smell!!!

Re: VTF scale tale

First thing I thought was magnet? Then read the rest of your post. Good catch. Turn Tables are the never ending tune up, the more time you spend with them the better they sound.

Re: 2018 Carverfest Tube Power Amplifier Build

RobertR, I have a question. Not holding you to anything here just wondering if the initial $350 plus final $300 is for the amp kit only with no tubes at all?

Thanks for all your doing!
