Newer EF86 Variants

Post by JMPGuitars »

For anybody interested in an EF86 preamp, there are newer variations in the downloads section: viewtopic.php?p=235811#p235811

The EF86 Xtra and the EF86 Lite 2P. The Lite 2P is my version of the Lite 2b but with what I consider a better implementation of the EF86...compared to the EF86 Lite.
The EF86 Xtra adds an additional gain stage for higher gain fans.

Thanks,
Josh

Better than what? The regular Lite IIb doesn't have any EF86s :roll:

Thanks!

Nobody has built the Lite 2P yet. I sent a kit to somebody who'll have it this week, and eventually/hopefully he'll post a clip.

Thanks,
Josh

I don't think I remember that one (maybe due to my brain surgery and radiation) I don't see it in the Downloads section either :| )

The EF86 stuff is here: viewtopic.php?t=24429
My version of the Voxy EF86 Lite is at the top of that page.
The old version of the EF86 Lite is at the very bottom of the page. There was never a good schematic posted of that old version.

Thanks,
Josh
