I'm thinking of using a rotary switch for time constant control, I have 2 (for PM670) nice 1-12 switches lying around. Do you guys think 12 pos would be too coarse?

And, if not, just make it linear? 12 even steps to get to 10k?

Cheers,
G

Any reason to prefer one of these over another?

http://store.tubedepot.com/5687.html

Are any of these tests worth paying for?

# Standard Test Included – All tubes from TubeDepot.com are tested and guaranteed to work as they should. There is no fee for this test.
# Hi-Gain (+$2.00) – If you want a preamp tube with higher gain, you can choose this option. There is a $2 per tube fee for this test.
# Matching (+$2.00) – If you want matched pairs of preamp tubes, choose this option. You must buy at least 2 preamp tubes for us to match preamps tubes. We match to within 3%. There is a $2 per tube fee for this test.
# Balanced Triodes (+$2.00) – If you want the best performance for the Phase Inverter section of your amplifier, you can choose this option. There is a $2 per tube fee for this test.
# Matched+Balanced Triodes (+$4.00) – We can match and balance preamps tubes for you as well. You must buy at least 2 preamp tubes for us to match and balance preamps tubes. There is a $4 per tube fee for this test.
# Low Noise and Microphonics (+$4.00) – If you have a phono stage that has to have the quietest preamp tubes available, we can ensure you get the best with this option. There is a $4 per tube fee for this test.

i think low noise and microphonics would be a good idea. i've used that option in the past. i could swear it was only $2 per tube only last year.

[quote author="analag"]... This mu compressor is not sensitive to tube mis-match. I did my homework in the cathode circuit to compensate for that ...[/quote]

I've put the Bom into a Google docs spreadsheet. Its shared with the Groupdiy account, so anyone can access/edit.

If u have a google account and want access, just share it with yourself.

This ones based around parts/prices in the UK but could be copyied into another spreadsheet for US prices and part numbers.
I haven't inputed any formula for totals etc, bit of a spreadsheet novice.
