I would love to spend just 48 hours in that listening room of yours :smile:

 

I am enjoying some Howlin' Wolf & Muddy Waters tonight.....HD800 and GEC6080 & TSBGRP.....pretty good stuff.

 

Nice amp! (Click to show)

 

Sylvania 3DG4 rectifier.

GE 6AS7GA power

Zaltron 6SN7 (July 1958) driver

 

I am listening to Miles Davis LIVE (vinyl, original release, original owner) on DT990 600Ω

The Watch Wabbit keeps an eye on my amps just in case @parbaked decides to abscond with a few 'em.

Lol. I have a little elephant keeping an eye on my rig as well. Just to the right of the rectifier. I'm sure it makes a big sound difference as well. :D It won't sound as good as yours as mine is a Woo not a Glenn (so maybe I don't need it as no one would want to take it). :wink_face: I like the GE 6AS7GA as well.

Don't do it!

You will put on 5 pounds and leave wanting 10 more amps and sous vide capability....

I believe every word you say.

Is it okay that my amp gets too hot to touch with the 6336s? I never noticed it getting quite this hot with 5998s. I don't have as much heat dissipation with a wood chassis.

You might want to get 2 octal socket savers to get those tubes up away from the chassis.

The base of the 6336 gets very hot.

Finally getting back to family and of course the 300b amp.

Happy Chinese New Year!

Nice photo of the amp, my amp is in progress now, very exciting!

 

 

Happy Chinese New Year!

@2359glenn,

 

Can your original OTL without the C3Gs support 12SN7 tubes like the B36?

It can if it is supplied with a 6/12/24 volt selector switch. For example, on the back panel, a 6AS7/5998 switch and a voltage selector switch.

I see.

 

I do not have any of those nice perks, unfortunately =/

An adapter designed to step up the voltage will still allow you to use these tubes.  Your situation is basically the same as Groundzero's.  The feature may not be built into the amp but the problem can still be overcome.

Ah ok, my bad, just went back and read through that exchange.

It wasn't my intention to chastise you for missing the earlier info.  I was just re-dispensing the information for you.  :)

post #12809 of 13373

No problem, certainly didn't take it that way.  As much as I love the Glenn OTL, rummaging through 854 pages is insane!

 

I did vaguely remember reading through something like that before, so I'm glad that you pointed me in the correct direction :beerchug:

I like your amp collection , one piece from each of the great HP tube amp makers. Glenn, Donald , Craig & Doc @ Bottlehead.
