The high voltage tube guitar preamplifier project is an adaptation of the famous tube preamplifier to suit the DIY’ers demands. Searching the net, I’ve never come across similar idea, so I decided to share this version of our very popular design. This a classic, conservative design, that easily matches other musical devices. The preamp contains one channels of real-tube, high-gain circuit. This circuit uses JJ ECC83 (12AX7) tubes. Circuit uses a stabilized 12V DC voltage.
This is a simple 555-based high voltage inverter circuit. The high voltage DC to DC converter is suitable for small current (a few mA) but requiring high voltage electronics. For example Nixiu display, VFD, or a other vacuum tube circuit. We will use a tube guitar pre-amplifier. The C3 capacitor high voltage type! Min 250V.
