I went with a satin clear coat from Krylon, had to wear gloves when handling the plate to keep the oils from my hands from getting on it.

You're no Rembrandt but the frame is nice.

That looked cool!

Either the tubes are big or the box small, so please let us know - what tubes have you been using?

After redoing the guts of my 5998A-SE and swapped to a big and yellow knob it looked like this. Got an 5998A-PSE on the way.

The marks around the ECC81 was done by the alu-ring (similar to the one around 5998A), but the socket was a bad apple and the new one didn't mach the ring.

(I have started to name my projects after Russian cities)

Default My latest amp.

ECL86 SE mono amp. Built in one day. I've been away from SE amps for a while, got tired of them. On my 43th birthday nostalgia kicked in (my first amp was a PCL86 SE) so I built this to rememorate past feelings. Turns out I love its sound.. Haha, audio is a neverending story. Special features: UL, no cathode caps, last filter cap is a big Solen poly.

Yes to build an amp in day is a real challenge. I have done it but had everything primed and ready to assemble. I'm a SE nut and lately moving back to SE ULs. I built one whole amp PS totally with Mundorf M-caps (polis) in the PS. Big and expensive but I feel it did add a special edge to the sound.

I have to say the chassis was already painted and semi ready.

Assembly in a day is a valid challenge.

yes, but we DIY'ers are not bound by budget or deadlines, i take deliberate my time, since ideas come as i go along, sometimes inspirations come when you are about to do something....

it is not the actual building that takes most of my diy-time, it is the planning and gathering of parts.....
