Also Matt of you sitting around with nothing to do I've just been given four NOS NIB GE 6J6A tubes. So now a preamp with one whole tube per channel is possible with self bias using both plates, grids etc. in each tube. Just if you are bored. Thanks.

Hope to finish the one I have started already in the next few days.

Not quite a 4S but close. This schematic I'm hoping to use with the 6SN7-SEs I recently bought. Simple enough and it uses two tubes which is what I wanted.

Just a mockup of the 6SN7-SE preamp I'm building. Chassis yet to be painted.. External PS.

Looks great Mark.. love the valves. I’m not able to understand the schematics as well as i would like but it is helpful to me that this one has the wattages if the resistors and cap voltages indicated.

Spray job and cheeks oiled. Assembled but not wired. I've called this one "Grace". Let's hope it sounds graceful also.

I remember that either vtrc.com or analog-metric.com had tubes looking like that. One type even had a blue glass. 8-)

Hi Mark, I love the tubes as well. If you change the volume control to the front end you have a Forewatt. A different PS though.

What is the color of the paint?

Good listening

For my 40th birthday, just a few years back (lol), I bought a Citizen gold watch with a white face. I always felt that gold and white were a good combination. I was thinking a very dark green would also work with the gold. But white won out.

Those look v sexy I might need to consider 6sn7 for my next amplifier design project, thanks.

The whole preamp was I inspired by these very special and limited edition tubes. I have always wanted some globes and when these came along I sprang.
