DIY Gtr. amp with 6AR6/6098
Anyone interested in a guitar amp  
design using a pair of 6098 industrial  
tubes? About 22 watts class-A: or40W  
in AB,(more B+,less idle current,and  
lower plate load)  
Looks like NOS Tungsol 5881, but *different  
pinout*!! and slightly different specs,  
Currently about $5 each from Triode.  
I've got a scan of my rough hand-drawn  
schem if anyone wants. The 22W Class A  
version sounds nice, but I've got too  
much work in the shop to redraw the schem  
If I contribute the design, perhaps  
someone else would CAD it, and the boss  
firebottle could tie it behind a red-  
-letter link for anyone to d/l.  
Shout if you want it.

Hi Stephen,  
I'd be happy to redraw and post your schem if you'd like to email it to me or upload it to  
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

Thank you Steve. Expect a gif email  
attachment in the next day or so.  
BTW - I should have mentioned that  
if you ask nicely, Triode have some  
approx-matched 6098 pairs.
