Dear friends I want to announce a new project. Conditional name "the Bachelor" The aim of the project is to create a SET budget amplifier. It is no secret that there are many young people at the forum, University students who do not have a steady income. I want to create a new amplifier on two inexpensive tubes, with a simplified case, but full electronics. The Moscow company offered me to purchase the reserve balances from the production of another amplifier, and this allows you to create a new amplifier weighing about 2 kilograms and costing about $200 (this is an estimated cost, the exact cost is not yet known) Weight up to 2 kilograms is important because the post office defines it as "small package", it reduces the shipping cost (For example for USA the shipping cost will be $34) Of course, it will not be an extra-class amplifier. But this amplifier allows you to introduce the student to the amplifiers on the tubes. To date, I have completed a mock-up sample and convinced myself of the reality of this project. If I started this thread in the wrong section, please moderators correct me.
