Red tube is called a ef37a. The red paint is an earthed conductive metallic shield to keep the noise down. I gave up trying to find a quiet 6j7. This tube evolved into the ef86

Looks cool. I wonder what you'll make of my Carr Mercury. That'll accept different power tubes.

Fast approaching, how many people are defiantly coming?
I asked a guy named Blake from Fan Tail audio if he would be interested in coming, he repairs pedals and is hoping to make it more of a business going forward so could be handy to know someone local for this sort of thing.

The one about the fucking hairdresser, the space hairdresser and the cowboy. The guy, he's got a tin foil pal and a pedal bin. His father's a robot and he's fucking fucked his sister. Lego! They're all made of fucking Lego.

I'll be there. And would be keen to get advice from Blake (or anyone else) as to why my homemade fuzz pedal hums rather loudly. (Aside from the obvious of it being my 2nd ever pedal and has some rather dodgy vero-board soldering... :lol: )
I want all the pedals!
