Tube Amps

Abstract

I always loomed at those big tube stacks from Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin and I always loved the way vacuum tubes sound so damn good, for live music and for home listening. I started off by looking on the Internet for schematics, downloaded some, and ordered parts.

Even if my amps were, in some configuration, tested during live gigs and practice sessions, I would definitely recommend to buy a commercial product if you won’t dedicate your time and skills to this kind of projects.

The best ratio between cost and happiness, to me seemed to engage in building a couple of small tube amps with 6L6s and with the proper mains transformer, I obtained a very good sounding home stereo amplifier.

These are the photographs of various models, casings and tests of the various amp builds.
