    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!

    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.
