That fucking preamp…

    I just realized how long I have let that preamp
project just sit there. It’s embarrasing, there’s only 3 things (that I
know of) that need to be taken out and put somewhere else. I just went
in and took out the two resistors and the one capacitor that I screwed
up. Now I just have to get some replacements, solder them in, and then
do some measurments. Oh yeah, I also need to cross my fingers and hope
I didn’t screw up too many other things too…
    Even though I haven’t been really active with this,
I have learned some lessons. First of all, no minature 9 pin tubes!
What a pain in the ass it is to get the soldering iron in those tight
spaes. I have several large (and I do mean large) tube sockets for my
first power amp project. These suckers look as though they have acres
of space between the pins. That’s good for ham fisted solderers like
myself… I gotta save up for a power transformer so that I can at
least get the power supply built. Then a little more to save to get the
output transformers. Always a plan and no money, and now with the class
I have less time too!
