RE: 6CB5A - good power in triode mode

Sounds best as pentode, g2 voltage matched to the Class A load, and driven by an E-Linear rigged EL84. E-Linear connection established by 50% taps in the primary coil. 5k a-a, or 2.5k SE. B+ or 270 and idling at 100 mA...and the plate showed no color until 115 mA idle. The LC ps filter and 866's did not drop the voltage appreciably.

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