AX84 Style Tube Amp

 

Schematic

Board Layout (soon)

 

 

Description:

This is a little amp I built to get some tube practice (hence the term "practice amp"...). The basic concept is like the AX84 Project, just one preamp and one power tube. I provided additional 8-pin sockets for tubes like 6SL7 and 6V6. At the moment it has a ECC83 (12AX7) and a EL84 (6BQ5) in it and it really rocks.
