    Crack;Bottlehead OTL

    Very important you have good clearance around your capacitor terminals from the metal securing band and preferably insulate the connection as well otherwise there is a very real risk of your top plate becoming live if the capacitor moves even a milimetre or two during normal moving and handling...

    I've always found Tyler at TC Tubes very helpful and have used them a number of times over the years myself as they ship to the UK. Yes absolutely try the Audionote as a bypass I'm very much in the try it and see camp you can always swap them out for something else at a later date.
