Crack is addictive
« on: June 03, 2014, 02:13:36 pm »
Love my Crack and have been chasing the elusive Western Electric 421A for ages.  Just captured one on ebay.  Cost almost as much as the amp with Speedball.  In fact I bought one of the specials and it costs the same as both.

Curse you Bottlehead and your great addictive gear.

Indeed! I have now bought NOS tubes (Mullard 12au7 and I snagged a 5998)- those 2 tubes cost 55% of what the entire Crack cost, but I am still all smiles because I know that for under $500 I have a killer amp for my HD600's. I almost pulled the trigger on a Bryston at more than twice the price!
