Bottlehead Foreplay Pre-amp kit
« on: December 08, 2016, 02:12:15 PM »
I recently came across a Bottlehead kit that needed to be dismantled and rebuilt. This is my first "modern" tube component, if you consider late '90s modern! My kids would say it's definitely vintage Hi-Fi. It included the constant current source active load boards which replace the plate and cathode load resistors.

Overall I found it enjoyable to build something from the ground-up as opposed to just replacing caps and resistors. And it sounds really really good in my main system, definitely a keeper. I'm considering building a pair of Dynaco Mark IIIs next so I'm all-tube.
