G22000 few weeks back and now WA5?  beerchug.gif

 

Yeah, right! Looking back, I began saving up for the WA5 the moment I took delivery of my Woo on 9 July, 2010. And reached my goal on 31 March, 2013. If it took me any longer, the WA5 would be "Discontinued" tongue_smile.gifon the website!

That's cool. A rare vintage amp, a new home, and a WA5 in the future. You done well. Very well. Congrats!

 

I appreciate your sentiment, knowing that you understand discipline wink.gifwell. Thanks, kindly. A new eek.gif home? I wish! I'm merely going back home and starting over. Now... where were we? Ah yes, we were hard working and taking in a wide variety of Live music all over SoCal on the weekends. biggrin.gif And then there was audio gears...

 

This weekend, I'll be making new projections to see if I can speed things up and bring the WA5 home late autumn, in time for some dairy farm fresh premium Egg nog.

Thanks Silent One  Clayton SF GalaxyGuy  Dubstep Girl for the comments on the pics.

 

Thanks again to DubstepGirl for all the advice on the tubes especially the RFT EZ80's. I hadnt even heard of those until you informed me. thanks for saving me the cash - i owe you beerchug.gif big time!!!

 

 

DutchGFX  i took the pics at night on a tripod with all the lights turned off. i left the shutters on the camera open for 10 - 15 seconds so the light could soak in but the room wasnt dark enough because the camera picked up the glow from the street lights behind the blinds as well, thats why the backround looks orangy and photo-shopped. there are no effects or anything on the camera just the raw image.

I thought you couldn't get that WA6SE. If you were able, I'll gladly make a deal there, and sell this on the FS forums.

And it doesn't feel like itsl acking power, it has excellent dynamics, its only the volume thats the issue, if I have a quiet song, it doesn't get loud enough. So yeah, if you can still get me that WA6SE, that'd be awesome!

Use a ND filter, I took some of WA22 glows in midday.

Thanks jc9394 will do.

post #25148 of 30571

if so what does it sound like with the wa22??

post #25149 of 30571

sorry bout the double question marks i got a bit excited 

post #25150 of 30571
Yes and heavenly, as long as you got the right tubes combo. I personally prefer GEC 6AS7G, TS BGRP, and Mullard metal based GZ34.

i have to wa2 just. i was gonna go for the wa22 but just before i bought it i realised that i would have to pay 33% on top of the original price for import to ireland and then another 4% on duty. now i am upgrading the tubes in my wa2 and the guy from vacuumtubes.net has suggested that he write a lower price on the invoice to avoid the tax. if only i had thought to ask jack that i would probably have the wa22.

He will do that but the buyer has to be responsible for package lost, he will provide tracking. That is why my friend's WA5 shipped to me and I will bring up to him.
