Snubber Kit - for 4 Octal Tubes image 1

Snubber parts kit for circuits with (4) Octal tubes x2 R-R820 - 820 Ohms 10 Watt power resistor x2 R-B8D2M - 8.2 Meg Ohms 1 Watt resistor x2 C-RD022-600 - 0.022uF 600 Volt Orange Drop Capacitor Summary Written by Dave Zimmerman - Maven Peal Amplifiers The "Snubber" circuit was published in the "Radiotron Designers Handbook" in the 1930s and is supposed to serve as a "[sonically transparent] shock absorber" to remove unwanted high frequencies and dangerously high voltages resulting from output transformer ringing, without the "brick wall" effect of using diodes. "Output transformer ringing often sounds like unwanted fizz on the notes - especially bass notes."
