|Kalen||pentodes for clipping in the preamp|
i got a bunch of EF-86's for cheap and i was thinking of trying a preamp that used these for "intentional clipping" stages. ive heard that pentodes clip more softly and give more compression than triodes. i was thinking i would have 2 back to back after an initial gain stage to clip symmetrically.
ive never seen this done before, have any of you?
can anyone tell me why it wouldnt work?
