    It has an extra gain stage but it only has a gain of about 10 owing to its large unbypassed cathode resistor (R35) then most of that gain is dumped by the 3M3, 470k divider before the following...

    I meant that it's not as low gain as I first thought because the two sections of the input trube (V5) are in series i.e. It has one more gain stage than the Top Boost pre-amp.

    I think the chain is...

    I don't think it has a lot of gain in the pre-amp before the master so there won't be much OD. (Assuming I'm looking at the right schematic). It's like a Top Boost circuit but with lower gain....

    Test the temperature of each of the op-amps in turn with a finger. If one of them burns off your fingerprint replace it.

    Just speculating here -
    66-135V is above the neon maintaining voltage (50V) meaning the neon is always on so there's no trem.
    Closing the switch pulls the voltage down so that it's swinging above...

    It's OK to short it as there's a large resistor in series. I can't quite make it out but it looks like 300k.

    It's a doubler but I think the bottom two diodes of the bridge are redundant. They will always be reverse biased.

    To apply Ohm's law you need to use the voltage across the resistor not the B+ voltage. For the resistor feeding the PI and preamp tubes assume 1mA per dual triode. Four 12AX7s would be 8mA total. The...

    A series resistor doesn't load the voltage down. Imagine a 6V transformer winding driving a 5 ohm resistor. That's 1.2A from the winding. Now add a 1 ohm series resistor to make the load on the...

    If you just use two diodes in series it will only have half the waveform. It needs two more diodes in reverse parallel with the first two so now you have four diodes when one resistor would do.

    It's not normal as far as I know and they could have easily avoided it by changing the order of the series components.

    I prefer the JTM45ri circuit with the extra resistor over your #2 circuit. The #2 circuit reverts to max bias current (-45V) when the wiper loses contact. The JTM45ri circuit reverts to min bias...

    Edit: I don't like the one above. It's possible to set the pot to zero bias voltage.

    Try this one.

    I've noticed that measuring the high impedance grid of an LTP or cathodyne often give a wrong reading. If you measure the cathode voltage it will probably be OK (55V)

    That sounds backwards to me. If it's heavily clipping at V1 it needs a tube with less amplification not more. A tube with more amplification will make it clip even harder. Also if it's already...
