Better to be safe than sorry - thank you dduck for checking on Nathan. He is a really genuine and lovely guy dealing with some challenging issues. No need to apologise I expect - it is wonderful of you to care enough to contact the authorities.

Thanks,

 

Experience has taught me to err on the side of caution in case of suspicions in this area.

 

Still no word from the local cops, but frankly I don't expect them to ever get back to me. That would be quite a lot to ask, and really it's none of my business.

 

Sorry that I can't give any kind of update, but so it goes.

 

I'll leave for the US in about 20 hours, so my ability to follow up is unfortunately limited. To the others who are worried (got some PMs), Good to know you care!

What input tubes are you guys getting good results with when using the WE412a?

Good news everyone, Nathan is fine, and I was overly worried. Luckily he was not annoyed with me, and seemed touched that so many strangeres cared smily_headphones1.gif

Sorry to have kicked up a bit of dust, but I once lost a buddy because the people who should kept an eye on him during a time of trouble... didn't. I promised myself to never underestimate these things again, and so I acted.

I, for one, would much rather someone check in unnecessarily, than not when it was needed. Good one dduck.

Man, kudos to you. You went the extra mile and that's a good thing.

Rumours of my death have been greatly exaggerated. Thank you for caring and commenting. I am taking a break for a while to heal from my DIY and tube addiction.

Does anyone want to buy my Crack? It has:

1. Speedball
2. 240V transformer
3. Obbligato Gold output capacitors (94 uF per channel)
4. Switch (3 way) to allow the use of 12AU7, 12BH7 & E80CC tubes whilst maintaining the stock operating point of the power tube.
5. Tung Sol 7236 & RCA clear top tubes

About $700 value. $500 including shipping within Australia.

Just sold my crack for US $870. Pretty good for a standard Crack (no Speedball).

 

Guess good looks sell ;)

Well of course. How many hours did you put into it to get that level of finish? The price doesn't seem all that bad considering the labour that went into it.

 

(though after all that work, you really should have put in the Speedball and charged $1k)

post #5368 of 8079

You're right, I did up many hours into it, but it's still pretty good since the electronics are all stock. 

I will order a second one with SB straight away :)

That finish work is truly astounding.  But I do have to say I am surprised you got that much for an electronically stock crack.  You did very well!!!!
