Home Tube DIY Asylum

Do It Yourself (DIY) paradise for tube and SET project builders.

Second Eli's suggestion.

Probably the best AB1 operating condition for 6BG6G pentodes is 750 V 30 mA plate, 350 V regulated screen. A lot of power with very low open loop distortion. The only caveat is 10-12K output transformer. If you have super-6BG6GA tubes, those can be taken even further to 800-850V, 400V, and 40 mA, with even better results.

No 6L6 version is capable of pulling such stunts.
