As I'm getting ready to start building this thing, I'd like to know what value to use for the bypass cap on C5. And if I should even use one. From the little I've learned about tube circuits while researching for this build, it seems to me the bypass cap adds gain but also raises THD.
I see most builds ommitting the BP caps, but Guavatone's build as per the pic in the first post seems to have what looks like a .018uf cap parallel to C5, nothing on C3.
I would love to know what my options are.

I'd rather not add to the over abundance of babble on Caps.  It's just an option and I would not go higher than 100 nF and PIO if you like that "sound".  Be careful using BP as a descriptor w caps. BP preceding the word capacitor generally mean BiPolar.

excuse my cromugeon-ness ;-)

Thanks for the info, I can work with that.
