Single Ended Triodes (SETs), the ultimate tube lovers dream.

There is a way to figure this out.


Length of wire with resistance per inch.
DC Current
AC Current

Calculate the losses. Choose the gauge. I like solid core but it needs to be treated very carefully not to nick it.

What you will find is that short runs can use a much smaller size wire that you would think. You can get better (fru fru) wire more affordably if that floats your boat. But frankly, if you have a large audible impact from wire, you have other issues going on.

Layout and wiring techniques count more than any reasonable wire (i.e. not chinese "no nines" garbage)
