it just so happens, we have a glue gun , (two "crafty" females inhouse) , of course, living in alabama , i had to fight the urge to grad the duct tape !

Please, no duct tape, they don't deserve that, LOL.

The hot glue is actually what they use to hold the drivers in the cups, when I switched my 325 drivers to the MS2i cups, I used hot glue, which is what was originally used by Grado.

For some reason the question just entered my mind whether Jeff Foxworthy likes Grados

Figured this was as good a place as any to ask.
Anyone know how much a grado hp2 is going for on the used market these days?

Worse still is that duct tape glue actually 'melts' over time which leaves a very messy sticky residue when you remove it.

Mods do delete posts but only if they are needing to be gone for good reason.

Looks like a good job.

Did you use a hot glue gun?

The (rod block) is connected to the headband, them the gimbal goes through the rod block.

Now you will never have to worry about it ever coming off again.

BTW, I'm listening to my325's with the LD with the Modi from the MBP, and sounds like the tubes may be burning in, I'm hearing cleaner, tighter, solid bass with more detail a nice clearer warmer sound all around, and these are the Siemens 6AK5W's. I'm still waiting for the Voskhods, I may just keep both the LD and the Magni.

Nice, I would like to ask IYO, are the Voskhod 6J1P-EV a more forward, upfront, brighter more detailed sounding tube than the Siemens 6AK5W?

Also the Voskhod is a direct plug in (native), with no strapping, correct? Thanks.
