Default Tassie Blackwood Valve Amp case

Don't think I've shown this to you. You can see the drilled holes in the metal base for the valves and stuff. Finger joints are by Leigh.

Regards,

Rob

Haven't spoken to the guy who commissioned it, but then he hasn't called me, so I guess it's OK.

Regards,

Rob

If I remember correctly, the tube stereo my Dad had was only vented over the EL34 power tubes, which put out a fair amount of heat. The 12AX7 pre-amp tubes were elsewhere on the chassis under the hood. I think there was only some black screen inset into the walnut case for a top vent. The back was open above the chassis.
