Is this a custom build amp?  Can it be balanced?  Also where and how to purchase?

Prep, you could've asked me this in our PMstongue.gif. It is a custom build amp, it can be balanced upon request, and you order from 2359glenn.

That sounds good Glenn.  I have one more pair of tubes coming with the sockets themselves from Germany, I plan to leave the metal cans on these as a permanent back up pair in the off chance that there are consequences to taking it off.

 

I seriously doubt there are though.  Given the commercial telecom use the tube was designed for the shield is probably just one more layer of isolation against industrial noise that might leak into the phone transmission lines these things powered back in the day.  For home use they probably have no more need for the shield than do any other common tube that doesn't have one on it.

Xcalibur255--you're the man. I get squeamish when it comes to cutting metal with my bare hands!

There is another internal shield that I hook to the cathode through a 100ohm resistor.

That must be the bottom metal plate below the mica right?  Jac says it reduces hum compared to traditional tubes.

Believe me I'm no manly man when it comes to tools or doing things with my hands.  Being of impaired judgement whilst sick empowers a man to try things though for better or worse.  tongue_smile.gif

 

I was wondering Clayton, how are you liking that wheeled cart you posted about a week or so ago?  Is it sturdy enough to handle very heavy amps?  I'm going to need something when my stable grows and that seems like a practical and affordable solution.  I could put everything related below and all that would need changed is a longer optical cable to the DAC.

Yes. I love the cart. I called customer support with some questions. Here's the transcript:

 

Thank you for choosing CB2. A representative will be with you shortly.

Welcome to CB2. My name is Beth, how may I assist you today?

you: Hello, Beth. I just bought the go-cart carbon grey three-shelf table. It looks great. What is the weight that each shelf can hold?

Beth: Hi there! I'd be happy to help you today!

Beth: One moment while I check.

Beth: The top of the cart will hold 366 lbs and the other 2 shelves can hold 60 lbs each distributed evenly.

you: Excellent. Thanks for checking. I appreciate it. :)

Beth: I am happy you like the cart!
Beth: My pleasure!
you: Hello.

you: Did you say 366 lbs? Three hundred... and 66?

Beth: Yes!
you: Wow. I can put my stereo on it. Thanks!
Beth: Wonderful!

Haha, Clayton that was as entertaining as it was informative.  Thanks for the info.

 

366lbs is....... a lot.  I hope they don't cost a fortune to ship.  Might have to find something similar locally if that happens.

Tyrell, I just got one of the carts. They are very sturdy.

Surely, with Clayton living in Earthquake country, that cart has got a brake. ksc75smile.gif

Look at those spacers that are attached to the top mica and touch the inside glass structure.

Thanks for the pictures Clayton, my C&K GZ33 looks exactly like in your pictures so it seems C&K is a Russian tube. Thanks!

Yes, so it seems to be. Love that UFO looking getter smile.gif
