Ok folks, I'm jumping in here to ask some questions, some of which have
probably been asked before. I want to build my first amp and over the last
couiple of years have accumulated much of what I need for in a 4-100A amp (2
tubes, socket, chimney, transformer from a Johnson Desk KW [capable of upwards
of 8kv], vacuum variable, etc).
However, everytime I read this reflector and others, I find that if I run in
G-G, I'll need more than 100w to get in the 1300-1500w output range and if I
use driven grid, I'll spend a lot of time trying to make everything work.
My question for the group is to get some ideas on whether or not I should
proceed with this project, or cut my losses(??) and try to get somethinga bit
more straight forward.
Thanks for the advice.
