|Hiatt Collins||Re: Tube voltage limits and tube regulators|
Thanks, Ray. That's what I was hoping for.
I've been looking at the regulators for use with a 6AV5/6AU5 output section. These tubes, as you probably know, have a listed 550V plate voltage limit, but a listed 175V screen voltage limit. I'm looking for a steady-ish voltage, but I'm just as interested in the voltage-dropping aspect of the regulator. The gibson GA-85 has something akin to what I'm considering (with appropriate differences due to filament requirements and greater voltage drop in my application).
There are other ways that I could drop the voltage, but I've never used a tube regulator in an amp. I'm interested to see how it'll turn out.
