Home Tube DIY Asylum

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

RE: who uses different wire colors in amps?

I think there really is only "one" option - for highest possible performance and quality...build the simplest.

Two stage, direct coupled, with a mu of 100 driver tube, and a LSES power supply. All the rest, I find, is second fiddle to that.

TCSS is OK, seven strands of three different gauge 5N copper wire, in teflon, about 19 AWG. Today, I enjoy using Mil Spec M22759/11 a whole lot, its multi stranded copper, silver plated, teflon jacketed, in various gauges...12, 14, 16 and 18 AWG. Many pretty colors, a JOY to work with...eBay .... low-ball the Sellers.
