    In light of this, and the one stock bias value I could find online, I decided to go back to the 170r / 14.8w / 39.9mA bias in the SS recitier “channel”.

    12w seems to be the accepted limits of a cathode-biased el84, Friedman appears to have designed the amp around 16-17w.

    With this arrangement, I’ll have a pretty standard 12w when tube-rectified, and hot-like-intended 15w when SS-rectified. Two different sand boxes to play in...and I reckon I’ll develop some real-world experience with tube wear and limits :).


    I’m cleaning up my work area, and took one last shot before some stuff when in the trash:

    Happy New Year, and Thanks, again, for all your help and insight!

    And like any good modern serial, a preview from Vol. 4

    Since I didn’t have a bunch of troubleshooting like I thought, I ended up with extra time left over, and got the case and cab husks together.

    Still have a bunch of work to do, and am having trouble figuring out hardware for the look I want, but I wasn’t expecting to even have this much done by the time I had to go back to work.
