Home Tube DIY Asylum

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

In what spirit do you ask the question ??..

Hey, I feel your questioning, on a public forum, is rather rude to Mr. Fraker, and way way off-base. It seems to "me" like it was posed, not as a way to learn something about audio design, ( because believe me, Mr. Fraker has many good reasons to choose what ever tubes he likes - and YOU would learn positive things from understanding his reasoning ).

No, unless I am mis-reading you totally, it SEEMS to me, you just try to put someone on the defensive. How rude, how mean spirited can you be??

Realize, I am a different person than Mr. Fraker, and I have free will, to do and build what ever I please.

If this was done in the spirit I envision, I would pose the following -- let me put YOU on the defensive :

You don't even know what the tube would be, do you ?? NO!

Do you know who suggested it to me, to try out ??? NO!

Does the amp exist, and in working order in my home....NO !!

Am I presently "actively" constructing it?? NO !

Am I planning to build something ?? YES !! Of course.

Have I ever used a 7B4 in any of my amps?? NO!

Did Mr. Fraker's recent AA postings, of a 2 mA , mu of 100 driver, sink into your mind ?? PROBABLY NO !!

Can ( and do ) YOU ( and I ) know how to build a better performing SET amp than Mr. Fraker? NO !!

Can any one else in SET land?? ..... I DOUBT that, very much.

Have I grossly mis-read your intent ?? ' Don't know !! Perhaps. YOU can certainly explain, and tell us. If I am interpreting you wrong, I apologize in advance of me knowing.

Well, there you have it sir.
