RE: Anybody use the EC86?

It really isn't too difficult to deal with these high gain/high gm tubes. I am running a TX-coupled linestage with 6S4Pi's in it, and have put 6S45's in it too. The carbon comp, 1/4W Xicon resistors from Mouser are quite effective.

I was warned early on that at some point I would encounter a situation that would leave me wishing I could break open the bottle and solder the stopper to the grid posts, but it hasn't happened yet...:)

Friend, I would not hurt thee for the world...but thou art standing where I am about to shoot.
