Episode 120 – Tubes Revisited 6V6 and 5879

Tubes Revisited 6V6 and 5879

This week we revisit tubes, primarily the 6V6 power tube and 5879 preamp tube. I have loved my 1956 Gibson GA-40 amp and investigating my Getchel Chicago Deluxe amp helps me understand why I love them both! Enjoy the show!

Episode 43 – Class A vs. Class AB Circuitry

Listen to the episode!

Alright folks. I’ve heard enough about class A and class AB and how class A is so much better than class AB. I’ve had plenty of conversations, people ask me about class A and so on that it’s high time I did an episode on class A circuitry.

Some background must be covered to really get a better understanding of what is going on in the amp and where this classification is derived.
