|Steve Ahola||Adding MV (or PC?) to cathodyne PI|
In converting my Electar 30 into a Wreck Express with 2 cathode-biased EL84's I was wondering about adding a MV to a cathodyne driver similar to the Princeton AA964. Any suggestions?
How about a crossline MV similar to the Matchless Spitfire? A single-ganged 1M pot wired as a variable resistor between the outputs of the PI coupling caps... Possibly on a push-pull pot to switch in a cap for a Vox/Matchless Cut control instead of the MV?
What about the type that replaces the bias resistors with a 100k or 250k dual-ganged pot- will that work with cathode bias (with the "bias" resistors connected to ground instead of a bias voltage)?
Or just use the type with an extra pair of coupling caps and a dual-ganged pot?
Actually, I'd rather have a Presence Control but I have no idea how to wire it up to a cathodyne driver.

Bruce Steve, look at the Princeton driver... -- 5/29/2000 7:27 PM
