Thanks

Does anyone have experience with how well a Bottlehead Crack sits on top of a Bifrost?  It's a little difficult getting the exact dimensions of the Crack but from my research it looks +/- 10.5" x 6.5"?  The Bifrost is 9" x 6.75" (ignoring height) so it sounds like it could be doable.

(See what I did there? :tongue_smile:)

You have a Cracked sense of humor :tongue_smile:

Hmmm. you can either hit the BOTTLE or alternatively can get some HEAD.

Believe I have seen them on ebay for around $26.

I fitted the Blue Velvet pot yesterday and I can appreciate there is some difference. It's definitely silent and smooth, perfectly balanced at low volumes. I suppose it's worth it for the smoother action but while it does affect the performance, I don't think it affects the sound quality, if you know what I mean.

 

Still waiting to put my SB in, I got a mispack unfortunately but hoping my replacement resistors will be here tomorrow and I can get the job finished. It's worth opening up the Crack, though, as I rewired and resoldered a few joints which looked a bit dodgy/ugly and it helped me get into the swing of things for the PCB SB soldering. After reading that there's arguably no difference with oil caps, I'm now tempted to just skip them and leave my modding days behind after the Speedball.

 

Looking forward to quoting that back to myself in a few months' time.
