I like Continentals just fine though I only have one. 6L6 has one of those things that burn kerosene and they look like a ton of fun.

congratulations again btw really lovely facilities,
kind of ironic that what comes out these days from this factory will be almost as warm (on the outside) as the electric kilns before them.

Also, maybe after the leak is fixed, add dropped false ceilings, warm wallpaper and some nice leafy plants to cozy things up for the worker ants ? After all, happy employees make happy customers

Buncha kilns vs. a buncha class A amps - almost an even trade. I'll bet the input AC panel for that building is quite impressive...

Betcha also that the building was quite a masterpiece of filthiness before the make-over, as kilns don't make for the cleanest of operating conditions.

Nelson's work bench doesn't exactly look like a museum.

One of the best airplanes I've ever heard was a '55 310 with the short exhaust augmenters over the wing... Very distinctive sound.

That said, for amazing noise with tone and personality you need to hear a Twin Bonanza before they are all gone-- a pair of GO-480, swinging 3-blade props, and a pair of big, large diameter, throaty augmenters per engine. It sounds like nothing else, because the exhaust pulses don't exactly correspond with the blade noises and the result is sonorous. (If you like old airplane noise.)

No, a TWIN Bonanza... two 6-cylinder engines geared and running faster than the props, augmenter tubes every 3 cylinders, and 3-bladed props.

So 12 Cylinders, 6 blades and megaphones. Awesome!
