Can't say I blame you Roger. I'm babysitting a Soulshine8 here but I never took it out of the box. They shipped with Full Music 6sn7s I think. If ever, it will be my first time to hear Full Musics. Maybe I'll hook it up and compare them with the Soulshine. The Soulshine has that iron fisted thing going too since the second stage is built around 12bh7s. It should be interesting. Want me to snap some pics?
Some pics would be great. I would love to tube roll that preamp,I did that with my Ampex, I had some Mullards in there but took them out as they lacked extemsion. The Soulshine uses minatures compared to the soulsshine8 uses octals,is that right? I don't know if it's in the cards but I would like to see what preamp sounds better to your ear and why. That sounds like it could be fun if you have the patience and time. Thanks
