Live from Berlin : ETF 2014 - Part 14


A report from the ETF would not be complete without some serious tube porn. So here you go:

A Eimac 35TG.

What a beautiful glow.

This is the output tube in an amp made by Reinout:

Notice the ratio of number of tubes vs. transformers and chokes!

He uses a 12-pin compactron as driver. Nice!

300Bs in a push pull amp from Japan:

Driven by RE604:

A thoriated tungsten filamentary triode in an amp made by Oliver:

With 816 mercury vapour rectifiers....

... with that nice blue glow when turned on:

Stay tuned for more tube porn!

Best regards



  1. Nice report! Which th. tungsten triode with anode cap was that ? ...514? Looks very nice...

  2. Hi!
    I don't know the exact type. Maybe the owner of that amp reads this and comments...
