    These came together in an eleventh hour push. Yesterday Lance (westend) dropped off the bases, and last night I was up late huffing solder fumes, in a last desperate attempt to finish them before today's Cobblefest.

    Plugged them in and...

    Wow, Nate--for something that came together at the eleventh hour, those sure do look mighty fine.

    How are you running the 6AU6? It's an interesting tube, with a lot of uses.

    Is that a 6X4 for rectification?

    Nice looking work!

    Now if the OPT and PS transformer were chromed, you'd have something similar looking to a E.H Scott design.

    Gorgeous! I just love the consistent aluminum color, it plays well with the color of the plates in the tubes, and the light wood makes the whole thing pop. Beautiful. :drool:

    Very so-fist-tee-ka-ted looking Nate. We'll need a full report on the sound. Put little blue domes on the caps and they would look like a farm in Iowa.
