Enclosure - The wood on the stock case has been naturally ebonised with a mixture of vinegar and steel wool and sealed with about six coats of satin lacquer polished between layers. The capacitor enclosure has been constructed from similarly ebonised western red cedar. Linear highlights have been added with gold leaf protected with shellac. The top and transformer bell housing have been painted with a textured gun metal grey Rustoleum paint. The volume knob is gold plated brass.
Age - Approximately three months
Not including tubes, I have invested approximately $750 into this amplifier in addition to many hours. It is my pride and joy. I am asking $650.00 AUD plus shipping. Please note that as I am in Australia it has a 240 volt transformer.
Unfortunately I have become addicted to tube rolling (I'm serious) and need to go SS for a while.
As an OTL amplifier this really only suits high impedance headphones. It drives my T90s with great clarity, balance and imaging.
