Tubelab Monoblock: Detailed Build of Second Amp #4

This video covers another slow, detailed build of the mirror image amp in this pair of vacuum tube EL84 monoblocks. If you have a short attention span, these next few videos are probably not for you. If you enjoy watching an electronics build at a relaxing pace, enjoy!

Here is the PTFE tubing I use to protect component leads:

And here is my favorite Contact cement, Pliobond:

This is the first push pull vacuum tube amplifier on this channel and is a simple design created by George Anderson at Tube lab. This amp, the "Simple Push Pull" has a large following and while I haven't heard it, I have discovered that simple low parts count amps seem to also sound the best. I'm building this as a pair of monoblocks using decent parts.

You can purchase a board to simplify this build at http://tubelab.com/ or toss him a donation :)

Here he talks about the transformers etc. for this build.


I have a webpage up for this build showing the schematic as I plan to build it and a "basic BOM" to get you started on gathering parts.
