6CA7s + EL34

Post by jnoel64 » Fri Sep 08, 2017 10:01 am

This may be better suited for the Mark V section, but I will start here.

Since the V can have different pairs of tubes, I was wondering about blending 2 =C= EL34 tubes and 2 6CA7s in my Mark V. Of course, I would only be able to use variac power, but I did try a quad of 6CA7s and really like what I was hearing with those. Then I got this new brainstorm. I may just have to try it and see what happens.

That may be fun. Which pair will go where? the 6CA7 may be better in the center vs outer or it just may work better the other way.
