I have another little project that I'm working on for the VTA ST 120.
I am trying to keep everything as much as original as possible especially the front face of the chassis on the amp. I also want to keep the original octal bias sockets on the front of the amp.
The new project I'm working on is I want to buy two octal male socket plugs to plug into the female octal sockets on the front of the amp. On the two octal male plugs I want to install some calibrated electronics and two analog meters inside the plugs to monitor the bias of the tubes.
This way I can unplug the bias meters when I'm not using them and plug them in when I want to adjust or monitor the bias and/or leave the plugs in for aesthetics.
I found two plugs on eBay and a few others that I have pictured below.
The only problem I have is I am limited to my knowledge and resources to find small enough analog meters that will fit snugly inside the plugs and was wondering if any of you here might know where I can find two small analog bias meters the same size as those plugs ?
I have already seen a few digital meters but I would like to see if I could stay analog.
Have a good day everyone.
