Low V Hack Job

0:42 minutes (665.76 KB)

This is a quick clip of an amp I built with a 12AX7 preamp and 12AU7 self split output. The heaters are running on a 12v laptop power supply and the B+ is off a 30v (but actually puts out 38v) printer power supply. And it's built in a baking pan. The OT is a little MPS 22.5k.
It's recorded using my phone.

Low V Hack Job part II

This is another version of my amp with a 12vdc wall wart for the heaters and a 30v printer power supply for the B+
This time, instead of a self split output section, I'm using one triode for a gain stage and one for a SE output. I'm using a tiny reverb transformer for the OT. It's pretty much all gain but I think it's an improvement over the self split design.

It's got a really annoying loud hum but it does the clean to mean ok.
