Compact Tube Hybrid CTH - failed build for experienced DIYers only
Will Ship To: UK/EU preferred
I checked everything and tried to ask in the support thread but I'm not an experienced DIYer and this is a very hard build to debug due to the compact PCB and I was doing damage trying to remove things (see closeup of the underside with legs soldered together due to damaged pads) so I gave up and bought a finished one which I've been using ever since. This has just been sitting in a box in my cupboard.
In my checking I damaged the small coil (it's hot glue'd in place) and looking at it now I remember trimming the legs of the black gate cap and the one next to it too short so I had to solder extensions. Both should probably be replaced.
So you get everything pictured - the nearly complete rev 1.1 PCB, a case with solid and mesh tops, two sets of metal end plates (the pre-cut ones use a mini jacks so you might want to make your own with RCAs and a 6.5mm out) some Russian paper in oil caps and two tubes which I believe are new. The case and endplates are not perfect (the endplates were stored with the loose bits and the case wasn't put away) but nothing too bad - feel free to ask for more pics.
To finish the build I think you'll need a supply of transistors to fit 2QP, a coil L1H, and capacitors C5P and C3H along with a lot of patience and skill, but I cannot guarantee there isn't more damage. There are no burnt looking components and no bad smell... Oh, and you'll need a 24v 1A AC wallwart PSU to actually use it.
I'm hoping for £70 £60 £50 £45 but feel free to make an offer of cash or gear - anything is better than a box cluttering my room, but I'm not going to give it away. Any questions don't hesitate to ask
