The 816 is the Junior of the 866/866A.
Might need to procure a few of these as well.

David Byrne And Brookly Music Factory

I'll always be a David Byrne fan. He is out there having a blast and continuing to make great music. His label Luka Bop has released some of the hottest tracks I've heard. This clip is of David Byrne collaborating with a band of mostly kids from the Brooklyn Music Factory and Doug Hream Blunt.

The amazing evolution of Doug Hream Blunt continues! From never performing live in his entire life… we have just finished three shows here in New York, where he performed with a terrific band of 13-14 year old girls and boys (thank you Brooklyn Music Factory and Clover & The Clockworks!), various professional musicians from around the city… and David Byrne! Here is a video from the last show we did at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn, which was made by Doug’s percussionist Geoffrey Hug and his crew.
We would like to send special thanks to Ace hotel and Martin Guitar for believing in Doug to begin with – and who’s String Theory project is bringing him around the world! Also, warm thanks  Amanda Khiri, Dave Levy, Joakim and Luke Jenner for playing with Doug in New York, and to everyone that attended his shows.

Here is more about Doug Hream Blunt. It turns out he has roots in Arkansas as well. Here is a small clip about Doug. Very cool.

Eimac Tubes

I cleaned up these Eimac tubes a 100TH, two 35T and two 3C24. They cleaned up really well.
Flash and no flash.

JWC DIY Mini Punch Kit Dual 12 inch woofer Tractrix From FastlaneAudio Part 2

 So this is building the outer cabinet around Fastlane's Minipunch horn which is not part of the ordered kit. This video is shorter than the first and more basic. There is no testing or "finishing" of the cabinet but rather to show the simple steps to complete the woodworking part of the build. Go to FastlaneAudio.com for more info and pictures.

Here is a link to part 1

Fairchils 240 Preamplifier

I like the styling of the Fairchild equipment especially their 240 preamp.
 Original and newer style.
