    Thank you. It's a little cluttered right now. My workbench is probably the only thing (as far as my house goes) that I miss. I intentionally made it a standing workbench to minimize back problems (we...

    After a leisurely 16 hour drive I'm back in the land of humidity and green grass. I have a few vintage 5Y3's to pick from. The one I picked does indeed drop the HV a little more than the JJ did. The...

    pdf64- Thanks for the heads up. I was hoping that I had "discovered" TD's logic behind the circuit. I don't know how many of those kits were built but I'm going to bet long time amp builders didn't...

    To all who brought it up - Thanks for the heads up on the GZ34. I heard you but honestly... I was struggling with why a reputable vendor would miss a key component like that so badly. Justin - I...

    Yep, the numbers show high bias too. The gizmo and the real numbers match pretty nicely but the bias is way too hot. I had calculated power but I've found if I get too many lines of text in my post...

    Center tap to plate on the output transformer is 215Ω and 216Ω respectively. The output transformer is dropping about 11V per tube. Both Cathodes (to ground) are 27.3V. All measurements made with a...

    I have voltages and other info but this site keeps resetting and showing the message is too short. If I can't post there's not much point in continuing here...

    The rectifier is a GZ34

    Correct, the EuroTubes bias checker measures actual DC voltage (pin 8 is ground) and only for the tube...
  9. First post - TubeDepot 5E3+ Tweed build and stuff

    I've been doing a little reading here and I've decided to ask a few questions. A few years ago I bought a 5E3+ kit from TubeDepot. I've since built one of their Marshall kits (head only). Last winter...
