GG, thanks for sharing.

With such effort, you really deserve to get great pictures. Bravo.

 

Ian, thanks for the clarification on the heat too.

I just finalized my tube listing for the early batches.

Haven't get time though to cross check with the tubes received.

Hopefully tomorrow then.

 

Here is the table of my tubes so far:

Maybe it's just me, but I think it's worth mentioning that this thread has been listed as the 6th most active thread today in HeadFi. beerchug.gif

Holy shmoly! You and GG have definitely exceeded what I have, I am impressed, this will fill the coming month with both tube rolling and cleaning! biggrin.gif

You have quite a few American tubes in there, it will be interesting to see what you think of the different varieties. Also Ciftie, a French made tube from British maker Mazda who also made Brimar.

They are renowned for having a sweetness and clarity to them and very holographic.

I really lost counts when did the tubes hunting.

Even up to now, I believe I might missed something on the list.

But frankly speaking, I was a bit surprised to realize that I've ordered that much.

 

Ian, thanks again for such brief and precise description.

It's really exciting to understand these tubes characteristics and their historical tributes.

My pleasure Boringer.

Your post had me thinking about the Cifte's as I have heard that are wonderful sounding, some of the best in fact.

I know I said I was done with tubes for a while but the Cifties piqued my interest so I thought I would have a casual look and low and behold a seller in France has a bunch of NOS/NIB mil-spec all from the same batch for sale and cheap so I thought what the heck!

Here is a link to them, great price for such good tubes, the only issue I can see is some staining on the boxes but I messages the seller and he assured me the tubes are first rate!

Just been chatting to Fredric who is selling these tubes and he tells me he has 3S4's as well and many others not shown so I have asked him for more details of what he has.. Also mentioned the Lorenz's!! Keep our collective fingers crossed, I would love to see everyone have a set of those!

some pictures of the materials, wood and leather i bought for the next steps of making my amp's protective carrying case, related to the fact that it is a tube amp i have a somewhat vintage looking style in mind:

Now I'm wondering how actually your Grado sounds. Makes me excited.

 

 

Indeed it is..... biggrin.gif


i don't know where you are living but at least within europe it would be no problem (no customs) to send my grado to one of you for an expert review as i would be more than interested in another opinion about how they sound and suggestions how to further improve my headphone designs.

GG, your skills never cease to amaze me!
The attention to detail and the neatness of your work place speaks volumes of your considerate thought process! Can't wait to see the finished item an was just thinking how great it would look to have just a wooden finish to match your colourfly!

Just hada message from Fredric which I shall paste in its entirety hereas he gives a list of all the tubes available. Really helpfull fellow!
