Services Pics From The Shop Back In The Day

 


Pics from my workbench:

 

... as a matter of interest:

Vacuum Tube Reference:

Here are some of the best sources I have found.

Attenuators:

The Dr. Z Brake Lite is a set of fixed resistors configured as an L-Pad.

Brake Lite Chassis

A passive attenuator is a low cost alternative to active options -  for low power applications (less than 20 watts).

Does Size Matter?:

Here are two size comparative pics of common caps used throughout the boutique industry - typically seen in plate supply decoupling applications. Notice the relative size of these puppies. The Solens will run from $10 to $20 each while the Nichicons and Spragues are about $3 and $5 respectively. Does one "sound" better than the others? Do caps have a "sound"? How would they go about doing that - exactly? Which cap does a better job. What is it doing? Is bigger better when they do this job in a tube amp? If you are designing an amp, which one do you select? How about if you are buying an amp?

Paladin:

For folks who have asked how my amp design is proceeding ....

Gettin' there!

Engineering model is complete. Design is frozen.

Working on a circuit board.
