It's made of polished aluminum plate and veneered mdf, and has hundreds of hours put into the machining, etc., (for all four units). The transformer cover is fiberglass that was laminated over a mold and will have artwork applied.

Not your everyday amp.
That has got be one of the best looking amps I've ever seen, be it diy or production model. Great design

It's art! A slight blur creates an aura of mystique. I use it all the time, because it also hides the imperfections of my chassis & finish work!

That pic makes me want to get my astigmatism checked again. I can't tell if it's a wooden chassis with brown-painted bell covers or if it has a faux rust finish throughout.

Haha, you got me. No flash, that sucker is unforgiving. Long exposure and no tripod. Never crossed my mind to take a good picture BTW. The background is awful.

Yeah, I'm into that. Actually, it's oil paint on a metal chassis. There's some red too... a touch here and there. The finish looks great, the amp is junk though.

* Another example how to maximize distortion to make things look good.

Cassiel: The rust finish is interesting, the blurry images don't do much. A clear image would be nice.

Well, it's a basement so not much light and, as I said before, the flash from this camera is no good. Anyway, here's something slightly better. Needless to say the ring of diamonds is a joke, actually the whole amp is a bit of a joke. My serious amps are upstairs.
