Personally I liked them all matching. I feel we should be able to make subjective comments about how they sound. I describe my 807 amp as sounding "dramatic". To me it does anyhow.

pebmrb -

Wow! What an awesome build! I love the 'knob' for the attenuator.

What is the exterior finish? It's not obvious from looking at the photos.

And I like the symbology. I get it.

Thanks 6L6
Exterior is cloth over plywood.Not too difficult to apply with the right TooL.

Wow! Very creative. Quasi-Ancient style, I like it! :-)

That's a mold breaker, great work! Did you make those wrought iron pieces? The cloth covering idea is really interesting. What tool was used?
