Valve Senior with 6L6's

Recommended Posts

*brain-fart edit*

i think the heater current is higher for 6L6s (double?)..they're bias'd pretty badly in the valve senior - before i put any tubes i cared about in there, i'd change the 10w cathode resistor from 250ohms to something like 680 or 1K..probably not a bad thing to do anyway for tube life..at least with the stock tubes.

yeah with stock tubes i changed it to 680ohm (R22) to begin with..the bypass cap (C25) can be left (in terms of voltage rating) as it wont make much difference - if it blows, it blows and you'll just have less stuff to clean up with the small cap that is there.
