    Thanks, I think I'll just leave it alone.

    To the best of my knowledge, lead free solder is only good for environmental reasons, but no good for soldering, because it has a higher melting point. In the soldering process a higher melting point means you have to leave the hot ion on boards/parts longer, which can burn the boards/parts sometimes, especially for newbies. I figure you watched the wrong YouTube clip, maybe find another clip with a 2nd opinion. :D

    But rosin core is always good - it helps to solder.

    £88.00 for a pair of good HD600s is a steal :beerchug:

    Your pull of the adapter cord connecting the cap hurts my soul, lol. As for the Fitz Mod, unless there's some tubes with that continue to have humming issues after proper burn-in, I would say no. The gain introduced by the mod is not something I'm happy with to be honest. I'm thinking of reversing the mod or seeing if a new volume pot would improve things. The stock 250K pot is a bit too much for this amp. Lately, I've just been too lazy and have been listening to my planars a lot.

    Just popped in an NOS Sylvania 6as7a black plate from ebay I got for $6 plus $4.53 shipping. Wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly suprised. Makes a new production Tung-Sol 6sn7gtb sound vintage. Will keep this combo in for a while.

    I like these coke bottle shaped 6AS7G tubes....they really look sexy :)

    Unfortunately it's not a coke bottle, just a plain glass tube, but it does have a nice glow:

    Ah...there's an "A" after 6AS7G that I completely missed out.

    But it's a very nice looking tube....the tube glow is just beautiful...congrats on a good find :)
