A short presentation.
I am a tube hobbyist from Sweden. Having been into electronics since early bronze age (late 60's) and into tubes sin mid 80's when I started to build an EL34-PP but sold it half finished due to lack of money for the bills.
Today I have an ample collection of various amps, two ready-made and several in various stages of completen, some even working:
Past Audio M3 - huge monoblocks from Russia. 6 6L6 PP cathode coupled (circlotron)
Priboj UM50-204S - a Russian construction that has undergone a major rebuild, from 50W ClassAB to 12W ClassA, trioded.
Octal 6 (the Mapletree Audio Design preamp), though I have dropped the 6SN7-PP - working
Blue Velvet - preamp based on 6SN7 with inductive volume control - running, but some mechanical work left
Stealth - also MAD, a 6W PP-amp with 12A6 (in metal housing) - working
6AQ5PP - paraphase phase splitter - working (my workhorse)
ECL82 SE STC - based on an odd principle called SuperTriode Connection - working
2A3-SE - Simple design, still not ready
6N6P-PP - a very simple 4W amp based on Russian 6N6P tubes - still assembling
829-SE - I build a pair of 6550-SE monoblocks but the power transformers were to weak. Will rebuild them using 829 or 6L6-PSE.
??? - Have got a pair of Edcor 7K6 25W transformers, have serious plans for an Oddwatt 6L6, but the mains transformer is not heavy enough ...
??? - Have another pair of heavier 6K6 transformer. Could be the heart of a hybrid 6L6 amp OR a 6550 Oddwatter or .... EL156 Oddwatter????
yeah and I forgot - the submin amp based on 5702 - 0,8W in SE and the Darling (that is humming badly) and a 6AQ5-SE microamp, I am squeezing this one into a very small box.
My secondhobby is corset construction and sewing. Will lead a weekend class this coming weekend o how to sew a Victorian corset.
