Franks Electron tube Pages

“At the age of 10 we moved to Copenhagen for about 2 years. I had some friends there who knew that I liked old radios so regularly someone brought me one. (See my picture at the main page) Among them was the Bang & Olufsen – Grand Prix 48 K (photo). I liked this radio so much that I wanted to make it work again. There was not much wrong so I got it working. Later when we were back in Eindhoven, I made so many …….”

The tube data resides on several mirror sites in several countries and they are exactly equal, except for the Poland site which additionally has been equipped with a tube search.

“Back in Eindhoven, there where the 60’s. Radio Luxembourg on my B&O etc. I got interest in guitars and amplifiers. I built several Amps. My first amp was something with the EF11 and the EL3. I also built a copy of the Philips EL6431 Amplifier. (That’s where the output transformer of my B&O radio went) In Eindhoven there was a repair shop called ‘De Radiodokter’. He had some old TV chassis in the display for 5 guilders each. When I had saved enough money, I bought some. Then when I was about 16 I made my first really working TV from these parts.”

  1. Frank,

    I’m on a quest to build a battery powered guitar tube amp with a 12 VDC power supply. Are there any pre-amp and power tubes that can operate on 12.6 VDC cathode voltage and less than 30 VDC plate voltage with a amplification factor greater than 80?

    Is this even possible?

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks

    Kris
