Is it waterproof?

I keep advising him to just take the penalty rather than try to putt out of the water, but he doesn't listen. Sometimes I think I'm just a 'golf club carrier' rather than a true caddy. :smile:

Odyssey is morphing .... and it's scary. Scarily beautiful. So one picture at a time. Today is Sunday 13th June 2021. I see Odyssey with tubes for the 1st time !!! With EL11 and KT88 and 6SL7 tubes.

It's perfect. The dimension and spacing of tubes. Turns out better than I thought. If those Sowter output transformers don't turn up I'll have to steal @L0rdGwyn or @leftside 's Sowter output transformers.

This came from Tomas and I've to read it several times.... to comprehendo - that's in Latin !

As you can see I've added a small toggle switch to the top plate just behind the 6SL7 socket. That's to control the negative feedback. When the switch is up feedback is ON, switch down towards you feedback OFF. The feedback is only for the EL11. The 6SL7 socket is open loop always. Only switch this with amp OFF!
When you want to use the dual triode socket, and still have EL11 tubes in the amp, you need to toggle that switch down to OFF. Otherwise there'll be high voltage on the EL11 plates unnecessarily.

This will give you even more sound tuning possibility! Gain will increase with feedback OFF. You really only need the feedback in UL mode. Distortion will go up without it. I therefore only recommend you use UL mode with the EL11's.

Another 30 minutes and all the lake water should be drained out. Sorry about the Akai that sparked and died almost instantly, but I doubt you'll be missing it much when that beautiful Odyssey arrives! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I forgive you Bcowen. After I see these pictures, I'm giving you the cart ! You can have it !.

After months of dreaming, visualising and racking my brains, finally Odyssey is almost done .... except where is the output transformers Sowter? If you want those transformers to be known the whole world wide, you better send Tomas the transformers quick !

Very generous of you, but that cart is all rusted out for some reason. I'd like a new one please.

Next time - may I suggest installing the electronics on the roof? Might survive your frequent dips in the pond :wink:

It was a 1970's phase altering and time domain smearing equalizer. Mercy killing. :smile:
