Another example that old tubes never die


I had 2 of those cheap ss smpls, 1 ss and 1 black one. Didnt really like the voltage drop and also the switch of both didn't sit flush with the tube so i cut the top piece of one and soldered it to the other and made a spacer. Stacked smpl. I'll think about how to finish it but it works and that is what matters.
We can't agree on everything.

But even then, it hits good. Its a 22mm so i will need to put something oround it to get it to 24mm.
Ideas are welcome

If you use 26ga Ni80 or 24ga Clapton wire it's easy to make a build suitable for 8.4V.

I'd stick a velocity clone on it (loads of space between the posts for a multi wrap Clapton build) would leave it as it is - a 22mm stacked rat mod.

I'm tempted to buy a pair of SMPL clones and attempt to do the same thing.

Edit - if you use 26ga Ni80 or 24ga KA1 Clapton wire its easy to build a 22mm atty for 8.4V.
