Default stickies

This thread and the "Project Photo Album" thread have been made "sticky", so are now a permanent feature of the tubes forum.
I hope that members will be encouraged to post and discuss their finished (or almost finished) valve / tube projects on these threads.
Thanks to Cadman for initiating and Sc3mat1c for pushing the idea

Enjoy

Hey Bas,

I see you're going for the metal effect. Looks very good so far. Keep it up

Cheers,

Thanks...John,

Trying to advance little by little...I found aluminium..and I suppose all metals very unforgiving!!! Not fun working with if you don't have the tools...

Unfortunately I'm still going to drop the metal topplate into a multiplex wooden box...

Maybe one day I will be able to build real wooden box with dovetails to drop it into!...sort of an upgrade!


Cheers,
Bas

Nothing wrong with wood...best of both worlds.
What's a multiplex box?

Cheers,

Hey Bill, why'd you use stainless and mild? Mild rusts like a nut if you don't give it a little maintanance. (Hept'AU7 is breaking out in red spots, darned humidity..)

Pedroskova,

That's the most beautiful amp I've ever seen

Does it sound any good?

Cheers,
I heard the prototypes in some ugly grey boxes last year(this has taken quite a long time) and they sounded very nice - refined, musical, and balanced - not a wart in earshot. I would love to hear them in my system.

Hell, I'd love to SEE them in my system.
