It has been quite a journey to get here but I finally finished it!
Back in January I bought the main pcb with parts, 12x4 tube, and power supply. Picked up a Hammond box because I just like them. They're easy to use and still decent looking. I have a bunch of caps laying around so I put them to work. Output caps are V-Cap. C6 is Clarity Cap ESA and C5 are the big, blue Clarity Cap TC series on the left. TC caps are high voltage film caps so no need for a bypass. Main tubes are a set of 6GU7 tubes from RAM Labs.
I only got to listen to it for about 20 minutes last night. At first I thought it sounded nearly identical to my Bottlehead Smash preamp. As different tracks played and it warmed up details started standing out. Stereo imaging was wider. Separation of instruments and vocals was more distinct. Great stuff!
