Re: setting bias for 5e3
Oops, Bruce is right about the screen current for 6V6's at around 4mA. I was thinking 6L6's. Sorry about that. Bruce, do you always use cathode resistors that high in the 5E3? I've built many with the stock 250 ohm value using the Weber power transformer that keeps B+ under 350V. Probably explains our earlier discussion about Class A versus Class AB1!
