As for the vision thing:

-A rare or expensive tube on it does NOT mean the amp looks pretty.

-Transformers are ugly. you have every reason to put them INSIDE the amp.

-A shiny wooden box is nice,chrome is nice, aluminium is nice, originality is nicer...

I am NOT saying anything looks bad, but sometimes i think amplifiers look like boxes wit all the parts threwn on top.

I have seen really cool things here. Does anybody know of REALLY odd or exotic amps?

I agree totally! Tube lovers are a special breed, but it seems they all have the same limited taste in designing their amps.

It's s boring...

I like it more like this:

Not very exotic, I agree, but at least they got rid of the 'wooden box withall the parts on top'-syndrome... And it's very stylish and glossy...

Aaargh another square black box!!! Yucky!!!

I guess it has to do a lot with "what you grew up with" I never saw the wooden chassis with metal plate and tubes on top..till..say my 29th year.

To me therefore the amps that say Triode Dick builds look sooo yummy to me.Click the image to open in full size.

Yup, they are fantastic! I however need to bear in mind that i do not have acces to such a vast array of machines.

Desihns don't need to be that complex. There are ven some old wise people wo claimed that less is more

I know..I get confronted with that all the time as well. Just makes it more unbelievable what people 200 years ago could make with simple instruments and TIME. Time is the ingredient most lacking in our times...not tools and machines.

Hi Karma,

Let me guess, it is a 300B SE dual mono amp with separate tube regulated power supplies.
