Bottlehead Crack with Speedball Upgrade – I am selling my beloved Bottlehead Crack with Speedball upgrade. As much as I’d like to keep it, I’ve come to the conclusion I won’t have use for it once I complete building the Crackatwoa. I built the amp about a year-and-a-half ago and added the Speedball a few months later. The top plate is finished in hammered black, as is the transformer bell. The Alder base is finished with three coats of paste stain, on top of which are seven coats of paste varnish. Topping it off is three coats Minwax paste wax, which have been buffed to a nice sheen. I’m a mature audio geek, and the amp is in top-notch condition, having resided on my desk in a smoke-free, child-free environment. It is trouble free, dead quiet and sounds awesome! It will come with the stock 6080 and 12AU7 tubes, both of which have fewer than 10 hours, since I have been using a Winged C 5998 and NOS input tubes (not included in the sale). It also wears the Bottlehead badge (not shown). As an additional upgrade, I’ve incorporated Bottlehead’s recommended groundbreaker diode at the IEC inlet, which eliminates any noise which might derive from computers, USB DACs and powerline ethernet, and Isonode feet. Price is $450 firm, plus shipping and Paypal. I’ll pack the amp carefully for shipping and provide tracking.

I’m also selling a near-new pair of Sennheiser HD600 headphones (listed separately), which are a perfect match for the Crack. They’ve got about 15 hours on them and will come with box, manual, original cable, HD650 cable and C3 Audio SPOFC cable. Price for the package is $725.
