Workshop: Tubes-tubes-tubes!


1:27 AM -- Holding the switch with a rolled-up rag... hoping all connections were soldered the right-way-round... fingers crossed. Death cap snipped. Thrown! Lovely glow of a red pilot. Slight crackle, hiss, crackle as the tubes warm up and the electronics crank open for the first time in 30 years...



Ah, beautiful 6V6s... ah, beautiful 12AX7s... and this old Harmony H306A is now humming happily to the tune of a P-90 with tremolo dripping off the edges... steady as she goes!

More tomorrow -- or is it today? Now to sleep. Obsession.
