Tube Phono preamp kit?

I built the Hagerman Cornet2. The build was really straightforward and the amp sounds great. You will need to buy the parts yourself, but part numbers are listed, the instructions are clear and Jim Hagerman answers email questions promptly.


You can see my own Cornet2 here:


I changed the brand and value of the output caps, although the recommended values work extremely well and cost significantly less than the "boutique" caps that I have used - yes, I stepped on the slippery slope and slipped!

Good Luck with your choice and building.
