Nice Toys.

Did you build these amps yourself? Cool stuff.

Now you just need a cleaning person cleaning everything up and run all your wires in a more 'wife-approved-way'. Your equipment and rooms are too nice for all this exposed cable salad ;-)

Heh, yeah, my wire situation has gotten out of control.  Too many other projects.

What are those wrapped around and tied the tubes together?

I was thinking the same thing....It pushed the limits at my house to have exposed *tubes*, let alone all of that wire!

Yeah, this pair of 6sn7 are unfortunately CRAZY microphonic.  I have 'real' tube dampers, they were ineffective.  EVERY SINGLE HAIR TIE my g/f own(ed) made a reasonable difference.

That can cause heat issues and shorten the tube life.

A few points... on this design the tubes are very chill, not hot running at all.  And since they are so microphonic, the tubes are basically crap/dead/worthless anyways.  Hair ties are a stop gap till new tubes arrive, which for some reason the entire world is taking their sweet time shipping me ANYTHING lately.  grrr.
