Tube amps with massive tubes - Page 2

post #16 of 24

the KT88 based amps are also pretty massive.  Not to mention the  BA by Eddie Current, especially with the AD1 option.

KR PX4 tubes on my Balancing Act are big.

@ Skylab,

 

So Steve did a custom job for you I see? Did that cost extra?

 

Two things, are running E80CCs there (12BH7?), and it seems you aren't using the binding posts and speakers correct? Just dedicated headphone amp?

 

Also, where did you source those slick white/silver knobs?

Yes, Steve put a headphone jack in the Mini-Torii for me custom, and there was no extra charge.  I am indeed running 12BH7's instead of 12AU7's - the amp can easily handle the slightly higher current draw, and I much prefer the 12BH7 in general, versus any 12AU7 I have ever heard.

 

Those are the knobs Steve provided with the amp, but I actually didn't like the white ones, and I just replaced all 3 wish Marshall guitar amp knobs I got from Antique Electronics Supply.

Cool, it's a great amp. I'm running E80CC but maybe I'll try some 12BH7s some time.

@ Skylab,

 

Do you know the width of the volume knob posts on the Mini-Torii (I'm at work all day, and impatient)?

 

thanks

Not off the top of my head, and I'm traveling overseas.

Steve just got back to me; 1/4". Thanks.
