Default Re: My Cathode follower with active load.

that was my finding too Bob.
I do think it was worth the dosh for the JB PCB as although I successfully knocked up a prototype "Birdsnest and tagboard" circuit, the PCB was a doddle to populate and solder up and worked first time no dramas. It's reassuring to know someone else has done the hard thinking on the earth returns! I also like the extra info he gives on wiring selector switches and Volume pots etc as although none of it was new to me, it would keep a novice well out of "Hum loop" trouble.
And for anyone else contemplating this experiment, can I reiterate that you don't need fancy "Boutique" valves. Any decent pair of ECC82 will work a treat so you can use cheap readily available varieties.
