I’ll stick some pictures up as and when they’re needed but nothing much has happened as yet....
I’m going for a two box build to get the transformer away from the PCB but mainly as I wanted to keep the main box width down so it sat on my shelf better.
I’m building it in Olive wood so it matches my preamp as below:
Transformer is on order from Tiger Toroids. Majority of components would be on order from Farnell if it would accept the PayPal payment - message out to their sales team on that one..... Will get round to ordering the 2 valves from Watford ASAP, I have a 12ax7 I can try already.....
That just leaves the two caps C7 and C8 I think and at the moment I’m tossing and turning between the Vishays Oli uses, Jantzen Silver Z-Caps and Mundorf Mcap Supreme.
I think that’s it for now so comments welcome......

I used Mundorf EVOs silver gold oil in mine, sounds very sweet and still more to come I think. Also some Mlytic Ags for power duties but these had to be mounted off board. Don't know how these sound compared to the BOM caps but I am very happy with the results.
Recently tried a 6N2P in mine instead of the ECC83, these are very cheap on Ebay (£6) and sounds really good.
Oh I can’t take credit for the woodwork although if I put my mind to it I probably could. My woodworking is probably as rusty as my electronics so resurrecting one of those was sufficient. Ant at BTE is making the case for me.
