TEAM HEAD SIX PACK - RETIRED

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Thanks to all who participated in the Team Head Six Pack program. I hope everyone had fun. The tubes have been permanently retired from service and sold to Merc. I figured they should go to a Head-Fi'er in the original rotation.

The best part is that I get to keep the box as a memento of the journey. I'll donate it to the Head-Fi museum as soon as we can secure funding for construction...

And now... parting shots...





Farewell!

(this may be my cue to come up with another program...)

Thanks Nick that was one awesome pack of tubes. You are a scholar and a gentleman for sharing such a great tube selection.

It had to be one of the best things I ever got in the mail.

Your trust and generosity for having sent such a great selection of tubes to people you didn’t know and never met impressed me.

If you ever do anything similar let me know and I’ll contribute something to the effort.

Thanks

Mitch

Nick,

This and all of your other contributions to this forum is what makes it so great ! You've added much to the cause and it's greatly appreciated ! So, what's next ? Any ideas ?

Actually, what made the Team Head Six Pack program so great was that it allowed the participants to contribute to the pool of Head-Fi knowledge in an area that was previously regarded as mysterious and difficult. Tube rolling sounds spooky until you try it yourself and see how easy it is.

Hmmmmm... if I can come up with another program, it would have to incorporate similar objectives:

1) Introduce members to new areas of knowledge
2) Allow people to contribute and share their findings
3) Be fun

I think a DIY-n'-pass it along type of thing might be next...

As it was before my participation, I thought it was for the ASL Head's in their variants. An amp that many members were using, laying out tube alternatives, and a schedule of tube rotations, for reviews and conversations. Doesn't get much more fun than that !

Hope it's not long till your next idea !

You know you plant the seeds of exploration here and that's a great thing !

Nick, I just want to say that was among the coolest and most generous things I've seen done here on Head-Fi. Cool box, too!

Thanks for all you do, man. If you were to split, this community would be the lesser for it.

Three cheers to you, Mr. Tuberrific!

Nick,

When I first logged onto this forum your threads about the MG Head are what got me thinking that I could buy a tube amp for the first time in my life. I eagerly read everything you had on tuberolling that thing, sound characteristics, and pricing/availability of those tubes. It really helped to read some good reviews on those tubes so that others can cut through the mountains of tubes and narrow things down to just a few choice tubes that fit their criteria.

I for one apprecaite what you bring to this forum: your enthusiasm for great sound, an unbiased opinion about what sounds good versus blind brand loyalty, your generosity, and willingness to help other out who are trying to decide how to spend their money.

Make sure you laminate that box to preserve al the notes written on it. That thing has to have more frequent flyer miles built-up in it's short life than I do. I can't wait to read about the next "Dangerous IDea" to come out of Texas.

THANKS!!

New MG Head Tube Rolling Tour???

Hi folks,

Although I bought Nick's 5751 inventory, once I decide on the best tubes for me, I have no problem building a new case and passing them on to other MG Head owners to try out for themselves. Additionally, I can also include a pair of brand new JJ EL84 tubes which folks can use to determine if that tube is right for them as well.

Anyway... once I get Nick's tubes and am ready to send the rest out in a new case... I will post here and take folks, first come, first served.

So.... get ready to kick some new 5751 ass!

We'll be baaaaaaacccccckkkk soon!

And, Nick, PS... I also would like to be included in the DIY box as well.... Please?
