Well welcome back! Thanks again for your help! I'll look into those tubes, and pointy feet thingies :)
You're very welcome. It's been a long time since I've been on these forums, over a year I think. It's good to see these projects still rolling.
"pointy feet thingies", lol. They are just spiked feet for amps and such. I can't remember where I got mine. It's been over 2 years since I built this amp!
I am using the Tungsram ECC82. I like it very much. It's a bit different than the more common 12AU7s. I also very much like the Amperex 8416 tubes.
