Besides, I love both worlds!

I still find myself lusting after this design. Perhaps, 2014 when I get a new release from the studio.

 

 

Recently, I discovered one of my fountain pen loving members is also a Shindo owner. And had a custom Japanese fountain pen made to show his love for said gears. He had the Danitrio pen done "Omakase" style whereby one informs the artist or chef "I'll leave it up to you."

Love Omakase...  nothing beats it when you sit at the sushi bar and tell the chef you want Omakase.  the only tough choice is with sake pairing or not.  :D

I'm only going to ask "How much?" after I return from the goodie store :rolleyes:with groceries. But I must, I am curious... and my love for writing by hand demands it! Though, the waiting list for this artist may be running at 2-3 years...

 

Currently, I'm trying to imagine the best way, most tasteful way, to present Seamaster's design by way of badge or stamped engraving.

I like the custom graphics he had re-printed on his C3m tubes too.  Which brings up an angle I had not thought of.  Rather than removing the shield one can take advantage of its presence by painting it if they so wanted.

 

I think knowledge of the resolution and file type is necessary to know if it's possible to print up those Glenn Studios logos.  The design can be lasered onto an anodized aluminum placard possibly.

Customer did not reprint - those are NOS tubes that come with the Vosne-Romanee model. Though, it's possible Shindo-san could be silk screening them himself. Many of the NOS parts he uses in our gear he collected several years ago. You raise a brilliant idea with painting them - if they're going to be exposed, they might as well look good. Yamamoto-san removes the metal shielding; likes the glass aesthetic.

 

I really like the understated look Seamaster presents because it won't (or shouldn't) detract from the amp as a whole.

Question for the group...I am curious about tube life span...If a tube is rated for say, 10,000 hours I assume that includes any time being on rather than when a signal is going through it. So if the amp is running but I am not using it then that adds to the time on the tube.

 

Am I right about that?

 

Thanks!

post #7073 of 10620

Yes, the rated life does not consider variations in signal; just on/off.

post #7074 of 10620

Thanks. That is what I expected.

I don't think any of my 10k rated Glass will ever get there, NOS or no. As soon as it begins to slip down the curve of sonic degradation... Next.

In most amps the current through the tubes is the same whether audio is applied or not.

And with audio the average current is the same.

So just leaving the amp on is using up the tubes as much as if the music was playing.

How long do you typically warm the Cary before you settle down and listen? There's :wink_face:somethin' about heat... and I like my fire bottles :tongue_smile:hot! Jimmy Smith ain't really cookin' on the Hammond B3 unless my amps are cookin'! :wink:

Been weeks since I used a tube amp. What's wrong with me? :rolleyes:

(Blame Cypherlabs)

Of late, I've got the BIG SS in a 10 day rotation (once every 10 days); Glass rounding out the month.
