Sound is perfect with no mods & it is driven by a tube-class "A" pre-amp using 2x ECC88CC Siemens tubes from the 70's.

Nice use of recycled parts and nice outcome! I recognize those rubber feet, use them on my amps all the time.

Mind sharing where you get the rubber feet?

Thanks,

Default Rubber Feet

@NWBoater

I'd recommend McMaster-Carr $0.60 ea for a pack of 25.

McMaster-Carr


P/N 9540K38


And if you can accept 3/4" instead of 1" diameter the price drops in half from that... P/N: 9540K49

Thanks Steve. McMaster Carr is a great resource, but at this time I don't need anything else from them. Shipping etc to Canada is expensive so will probably go with the Parts Express ones because I'll be getting other stuff for the amp from them. Will sure keep McMaster Carr in mind for the future though.

Only thing I'm not sure of getting from Parts Express though is the 50k audio taper dual volume pot 50K Audio Taper Stereo Potentiometer 1/4" Shaft 023-650 Trying to decide if something else may really be better - only thing I can think of is the linearity between the 2 sections to maintain stereo balance. But perhaps asking about the need for better volume control quality is a little like asking about Interconnects!

Thanks for any suggestions.

something like an Alps RK97 will probably be a lot nicer for you, and definitely have a lot better balance between the channels..

Thanks much - will probably go that way. Interesting that in the Mouser catalog they call the mounting style "Through Hole" instead of panel mount. It has threads and hopefully they are a standard size so that I can panel mount it.

The "Through hole" mounting style is for the connector pins, meaning that they are designed to be installed in a printed circuit board(vs point to point solder lugs on the Parts express part). There's nothing stopping you from mounting the pot itself on a panel, and connecting wires to the pins though (and that is actually how I am doing it for some headphone amps myself). You can get all of the physical measurements of the part from the documents on the Mouser site (or at Alps themselves) to get the hole size for the panel(which I also needed to do..)
