Pete Millett's Menace - Page 8

post #106 of 110

I bought these : DIN 3+PE MAL and DIN 3+PE FEM  . They are expensive but they look great and at least they won't be responsible of any failure the amp may have.

Oh cool, this thread got bumped up. :)  Right now I own the Menace, so if you need any pictures let me know bidoux.  I think you'll like it a lot! biggrin.gif


Does anybody know things like the output impedance and output power of the amp?

Thank you for your offer n3rdling, but n_maher already uploaded some pics of the amp so I hope it won't be necessary. smile.gif


Actually, I am not building a clone of The Menace, the power supply for instance is very different (solid state and DC heater), I am not using the same input tube (ECC88). The similarities between my project and n_maher's are  :



- relatively high output current (around 100mA I think)

- parallel 6080 (6AS7)


I have another question : in this picture (http://www.pbase.com/n_maher/image/96984139.jpg) how are the two caps attached to the chassis ? It seems that they are glued to it, but I'm not sure.

Very cool :)  


Yes those are glued on.

This disadvantage to that PS is that it would require an additional filament supply but it has other advantages that are worth considering.

Hello everyone :-)


Pardon me for interupt in this "old" thread..


Thank you for all these nice information about this exciting amp - It was actually Mr. Pete Millett himself who gave me the link to this thread, after I had made contact to him regarding a headamp for low impedance phones :-)


But I would like to se the schematics for the alternate power supply with diodes - Is that possible? 

I think that psu would be great for me :-)
