Drip Dual-STA build - dual 6BA6 option
« on: March 23, 2021, 06:13:30 PM »
Does anyone have experience with using dual-6BA6 or 6BJ6 instead of 6386 in this build? I'm looking into going this way due to the scarcity of 6386s.
I'm interested to know whether the main board needs to be modified, or if it's just a matter of fitting an adapter board into the 6386 socket.

This technique can be used in any sta-level type build, or anything with a 6386 in general. You don't need to look at this in a drip sta-level exclusive point-of-view. Chances are no one has tried it on the drip yet. I got the tubes for doing this same thing but ended up finding a good price on 6386 not long after so I abandoned the project until the 6386 die out and I don't feel like buying some again.

You're going to have to build your own adapter boards. Bowie sent me this information at some point that he gathered from somewhere. Look at the Manley T-Bar for inspiration on what it may look like.
