Bottlehead Quickie Battery Powered Tube Preamp
I finished the Quickie build last weekend. Only took a couple hours.
I haven’t finished the base yet. Not sure what direction to go, as the chassis plate is yellow. Not my first (or third) choice, but this is part of the fun with this kit.
Bottlehead – in an effort to keep cost down – has chosen acrylic chassis plates for this preamp instead of the usual aluminum. And, you don’t choose the color as it’s decided by available stock at the time.
So, I need to make a decision about the look of the thing.
More importantly, there’s an issue with distortion as I turn the volume past 12 o’clock. So, some testing is in order.
That said, another fun build from Bottlehead.
My next project is a speaker build – more on that later.
