He's pretty resourceful, perhaps he will find us some hidden treasure to plunder!



What, he's taking Pre-Orders?

 

Silent One: I'd like to order a 1956-57 Glass with Copper posts and...

Because this glass is rare (very?) and I know I'll have more than a single application in the future, I am planning and wisely so.

Will your amp be emerging with this design soon?

SO Glenn has been working on my crazy project a few months now.

At this stage I don't even know if it'll ever materialize.

I hope it will.

In light of the new reality, I've taken steps to temper my lust and appreciate what I have. Anything else from Glenn would serve as icing on the cake. wink.gif

Very wise as always SO.

I may end up with no amp, not due to Glenn's fault but mine and my tube choices.

In my case a two chassis will be easier to ship and will split the weight.

I am waiting on one more very interesting set of 12SN7 tubes to arrive and I will be finished with the rolling of the 12v tubes. I also planning to try the TS 7236 backups and see if I can tell the difference from the Cetron tube that I am using. So far I am using my EBay credit to pay for the tubes.atsmile.gif

ph34r.gif Me? I got caught dilly dallying! When I originally had the funds, I decided to burn the amp in first, while investing in other things and set the target date of 2 April. And now I can't stop thinking about the "X" mod.

Truly I hadn't thought of a two chassis design from Glenn. That would really be awesome. What precipitated my comment was a short private session with musicman59 and his gear this past weekend and realized how much I liked the WA5 again. He has the 596 in his amp, and they were phenomenal. Hmmm.....

A two chassis design stackable would make more sense for my needs and better use of my limited space and do not have to wonder if the umbilical cord is long enough. My pair of Radiocoin 12SN7 tubes has arrived. I am in the process of cleaning the tube pins a bit with distilled white vinegar instead of scraping the pins. I put in my TS 7236 tubes to verify sound performance. I noticed that while Cetron brought out the tooling from TS for the 7236 tube it is not an exact copy. The TS has what it appear to be lighted bars on top not the inverted “V” wire on top of the Cetron tube. The TS has a larger dynamic punch and wider apparent frequency range. The TS bass is deeper on my Shure 940 headphone. The sound stage is fine but not quite outstanding but I have a few tricks on my sleeve to try.  I continue to enjoy the smoothness and more relax natural presentation of the sound when my amp came back from Glenn.  The detail and the clarity of dialog on video remain as clear as ever.

Tricks up your sleeve? Your timing could not be more perfect - the weekend is upon us. biggrin.gif Can't wait to share in your discovery, joy and excitement!

I have concluded my tube rolling of the 12v tubes. The Radiocoin tubes took first place, Marconi 14N7 and Ray 2C50 took second and third place. The only 12v tubes that I was disappointed in was the RCA 12SX7GT twisted heater which seems not to work very well with Glenn voltage doubler adapter.

When the Maestro returns to the podium and music is once again emanating sweetly from the studio, we can advance the conversation. biggrin.gif May these posts bring a smile to Glenn's face.

John thanks for the feedback, if you can try a B36, I recon you'll love them.
