Did you trial it so far into poweramp input (bypassing pre amp) or into pre amp of tube amp and how did the volume output work out?

Looks awesome Jason.  I've got mine populated, just need to find the time to build it.
Where did you get those tube protectors.  I've seen some on eBay but they come from China and I have doubts about the quality and finish of those...

Beautiful, but pricey. I guess, you could DIY them too

Just stunning! :o I've not even started mine yet.
...and then of course I've got this terrible pain in all the diodes down my left hand side...

They're China eBay guards. Took a couple weeks to get here. I knew I'd be building one months ago, so I had time to gather everything. The faceplate was etched a couple months ago.


Did you trial it so far into poweramp input (bypassing pre amp) or into pre amp of tube amp and how did the volume output work out?


My amp doesn't have a loop, so I used a 100KA master pot and been running it right into the input/preamp. There's a lot of output available, but it's not drastically more than a lot of other solid state drive boxes I've built.
"If you put all the knobs on your amplifier on 10 you can get a much higher reaction-to-effort ratio with an electric guitar than you can with an acoustic."

Great build! Exciting seeing some Tubez light up!!! It will be fun seeing all the build reports trickle through! I gotta get started on mine.

btw: i notice people are now into tubes ;) since tube-builds are in, how about a tube vibe? looking forward to such a project :) (guess some peope have it in their minds)
Frequency Central did that a while back with sub mini tubes over on DIYSB. I think it was called the vibra caster or vintage vibe or something like that. I don't know if there was ever a pcb made or anything but I remember multiple layouts and veros for it.
