Single Ended Triodes (SETs), the ultimate tube lovers dream.

RE: How about the new 45 by EML?

I'm not sure why the geometry of the filament would matter as long as the electron cloud covers the needed area.

The electrons do not flow straight from the filament to the plate.

If they did then I could see the focus on the filament geometry.

But, AFAIK, they flow from the filament to become part of the the cloud and then to the plate and in a healthy tube the cloud is always bigger than it needs to be to keep up with the demand of the plate.
