You are fine. Mine are somewhat boutique I suppose and they were never intended for sale. Unfortunately I let friends hear one and 50 amps later, I am still being asked to build them. All of mine are unique in cabinet design and I used a few levels of parts. My personal Incubus Elegan....

I just recalled where I have seen your amps before....the "Guilty Pleasure Gear Pics" thread on the headphone community forum.
The one you did in walnut/maple/copper below is pretty sweet, VU meters are a nice touch, very artistic and vintage looking.

Is that a 5998/6SN7 tube combination?

Headphone jack on the side is a good idea.

I suppose this could be the Ei logo?

If they are Eis, they may have been made on Telefunken machinery (although maybe not to the same tolerances).

Apparently those old production lines were destroyed in the Yugoslav war...

I read somewhere that Audio Research used to fit Ei ECC83s as standard (with their own labelling, no less!).

Yep 6sn7/ 6080 or 6as7 build. That build was pretty complex and I doubt I will do it again, just too much labor. The brushed copper especially.

I am trying to decide on a loaner to send out to friends, if I use this wood it may not make it very far, some lacewood boards I just stacked up to check look. This is a simpler build and I have a bunch of these metal plates, I cut every single hole in the copper. If I make the next one too pretty it may not make it to a lot of people, this is my Incubus Elegan amp.LACEWOOD.jpg

That has two headphone jacks, one on each side. Two sets of headphones can be used but they work best if the headphones are similar impedance. Those who understand resistance in parallel will have a pretty good idea why that is. :ksc75smile:

Even those of us that don't understand resistance in parallel can only listen to one pair of headphones at a time. Well, except maybe @Ripper2860 who has like 6 ears or something... :stuck_out_tongue:

Some of us allow a wife or son or daughter to listen as well. They might even return if not subjected to Marilyn Manson you know.:ksc75smile:

I always pictured you as more of a kilt man myself, or a pleated skirt if listening to Manson.

I find it much easier to roll ears as opposed to HP pads.
