TillM said:i've build it with EF800 and 408a.
The difference with the tubes was subtle to not hearable.
The Capsule made a bigger difference in my opinion and with my experience.
In all my Tubemic builds I used the Transformers from Moby.

Is there any pre-made boards in existence?
Delta Sigma said:What tube? EF800?
R3 in the EF47 schemo can be mounted to the tube socket. Most others on your PCB the transformer is mounted or the arcrylic (no alcohol on the acrylic) boards.
C2 and C3 are a mystery to me. I wonder if Dany is including C2/C3 mounting boards as I've seen photos of Dany's kits with the boards hanging beside the transformer. If you mount C2/C3 on top of the board, there doesn't seem to be enough room for the tube.
I think I used one of the other transformer boards underneath the transformer to mount C2 and C3 in my build. Kind hokey but it worked and it's solid.
My body kit is a first run. It's possible he started including an option after my kit was put together.
Delta Sigma said:I'm still not sure what build (tube option) you're building. EF800? I'm also not sure what components you're referring to in your picture, especially not knowing which tube option you picked.
Did you get the build information from Dany with the wiring diagrams? That should answer most of your questions.
roger.unc said:Stupid question, but I can't figure out how to disassemble the M23 9-pin female binder connector on the cable side. Binder's assembly instructions aren't helping. I can unscrew the gasket. And I see there is a groove for a wrench on the adapter. But the coupling nut spins freely. Can anyone who has figured this out chime in?
(I figured out how to disassemble the binder mic side male connector from the photos Dany provided).
Delta Sigma said:Definitely not a stupid question. I struggled with this. If I remember correctly, I connected it to the assembled mic side connector, then used a flat wrench on the grooves.
