No headphones this year. Though if I have time the next two weekends, I should be able to fire up the soldering iron Christmas week and light this thing up:

It should have been finished a few months ago, but you know how that is. Still, it's close. Once the casework is done, wiring shouldn't be more than one or two evenings.

If I can get it to sing on or about Christmas, that would be the perfect gift!

Mum asks me what I want for christmas and I can't seem to think of anything!

And all the headphones I want (AD2000) are too expensive anyway...

Thanks! No, I haven't joined Team Electrostat yet. It's Eric Barbour's "Brute Force" (HeadWize - Project: Brute Force In A Line Stage by Eric Barbour) built as described with the OA2 regulator tubes.

It's apart (again) at the moment, since I've been scribing and punching where the screws to hold it together will go. Managed to finish that this evening, now I need to plan and mark holes for the tie mounts and a place for the big cap in the background. After that, it needs several hours of filing, sanding and polishing. Here's it is before I filed out the tube socket holes so the sockets could mount from underneath:

I've photographed the build along the way. When it's done, I'll put up a start-to-finish guide for anyone who wants to build a point-to-point tube amp. And yes, this will be going to CanJam '09!
