No, you don't need to get rid of the bypass caps. They're fine.
And I think you may be right about C22. It looks like pin 1 of the connector is the high voltage plate supply, in which case C22 would need to be the highest-voltage cap in there.
Is this a cheap modern tube mike? I think it's silly that they've got a 12AX7 dual triode and they have half of it (one triode) sitting there doing nothing. I'm also curious what's going on with the transistor in the plate circuit. Doe the power supply have an extra knob or button for something?
Yeah it's a Prodipe Lamp Studio Pro tube mic (around $300). I thought it had a great potential stock thus deciding to improve it But I think the designer made a slight variation on the actual circuit verses the schematics I attached. There are slight differences from looking at the pcb compare to the schematics.
Anyways the PSU only has lo-cut, -10 pad, and a pattern selector.
Where does pin 6 of the cable go in the PSU box? It's an odd circuit. Whatever's on the other end of pin 6 turns transistor Q7 on and off. If it's on, R41 is grounded and you have a pretty basic cathode-biased triode circuit. If Q7 is off, your cathode resistor is suddenly 153K (R41 + R11) which pretty much shuts off the tube, but it would also raise the cathode voltage high enough to destroy C31, which it says is rated for 16V. Does that match your microphone? Where did the schematic come from?
Could someone explain what happens when you extreme cold bias a triode.
I used formula IV on page 36, but formula III with cathode bypass cap is relevant here.
Also, Lm317 seems to be a constant current source, but drawn as a constant voltage source.
Should the connection between R4 and R5 be there?
