I thought the ODS ran 6L6GCs?
Afraid I really need those Mullards and you must send them to me.
ODS #183 runs EL34's. I was going to send you a quad of vintage Mullards then made a foil hat to block your mind control transmission!
I must try harder.
power station - minus the steam!
Now I'm waiting on the stainless steel chassis which could be in by the end of this week.
Well now vintage Mullard EL34's...
I picked this matched quad of 1963 Mullard dual O getter EL34's for this amp build.
I placed the order for the faceplates the other day. These are black brushed anodized aluminum, all the labeling is CNC engraved into the metal then infilled with White and Blue. Also named the amp finally, I'm calling it the Ocean City Overdrive. I'm still waiting on the dang chassis going into the 3rd week now that shop is late on delivery.
The faceplates came in a week early. Unfortunately the local shop that took the job of making the chassis has ghosted me. With 3 weeks wasted I hired another company to make them this week now the wait begins all over.
Is that aluminium chassis?
Did you order 2 of them?
No that's a stainless steel chassis
Chassis? I ordered quite a few, that's a whole story.
Reading between the lines, it sounds like the story is 1 of 2 things. 1. there was a minimum order number.
or 2. You ordered from a second Company as the first Co. fulfilled your order.
Correct and correct. lol They wanted me to use up a full 4x10 sheet of the stainless = 9 chassis so now I have 18.
I have another upcoming order, the RFI shield plates for the head shell, maybe a few Plexi chassis, maybe some stainless head shell grills. My poor plexi one of the earlier amps I built with an old style hand drilled board. Is it wrong I have been scavenging parts from her? I'm thinking of building a new one with the hybrid boards, stainless chassis, etc.
Nobody makes a shielded coax wire I like so I made my own
- Neoprene heat shrink tubing
- Braided shielding
- PTFE (Teflon) insulated silver plated interconnect wire
Tinned both ends of the braided shielding, no stray wire strands.
Finished, soldered a black ground wire to one end of the braid...wait for it...brilliant!!
Looks like it could survive WWIII! What kind of sounds does it put out? I dub this amp "The Tank".
