Hi guys,
The wood end cheeks are made from American black walnut, finished with teak oil.
The PEN45 is quite rare these days,,but it sounds clean and detailed in pentode mode, with good bass. Heater is the old British pre-war 4V type.

Yes I saw the PEN45' datasheet. Transconductance is higher than 6V6. I didn't hear about this valve.
You paint the transformers in a harmonic colour with the valves and the glossy chassis.
Walnut is rare here in Spain, but no less sought after for its beautiful appearance.
Have you tried Tung oil? It's like teak but has an amazing dye. Try putting on first with 120 grit sandpaper, you place the Tung dissolved in half with turpentine wait 72 hours after you repeat the operation with smaller sandpaper, gradually you concentrate more turpentine and so on until the total polishing. Wood breathes and finish is unique.
Good listening friend

There are people who have elevated this diyaudio building to new heights of construction, design, aesthetics, and sonics. Some of the builds of amplifiers almost make me think that this subforum ought be renamed as, "tube amplifier porn".

845, your build is awesome looking -- just wish you could invite us all over for a listen though. It is also awesome on how to all matches well.

What is the list of the other tube based equipment in your set up picture?
