Congrats! :hyper:
I agree with what you said regd. the Mullard 75/81 comparison.
Neither is necc. 'better' but there are subtle differences.
What gets me is all the tweaking,
just crank that bitch and be done with it! -- duende

Could be, I've had 2 OC81 MKII's, I remember one had white knobs.
That one's here. The number 66 rings a bell. I'll have a look tomorrow. It's a bloody splendid stomp BTW.

It's occurred to me that the 'white knobber' that I'm thinking about is my 1965. I have photos of the MKII including the inscription but I can't find the damned things. This would be easy to check if my wife wasn't fast asleep right next to the cupboard I need to be into to find out. Stay tuned and I'll sort it out. My excuse is that it's 4am and I've been working since 7am yesterday. Only coffee and a steady diet of Motown is keeping me going here.

Ah the night's but young to old school rockers like us - did eight nights once aparrently not to br recommended - I dont recall cos I got freaked out midway and didnt really enjoy the second half- bunch of us for a dare bet eachother we couldnt handle a ggig a night for a week "non-stop" if you get my drift! No wonder so many people dont remember the sixties and seventies - sleep deprivation - or was it those little yellow helpers?

It's a very good point. I used to handle nights better than this too (though I've never tried 8 on the trot :oldgrin: ). I'm upgrading a multinational's accounting system so you tend to notice when your concentration and precision are slipping a bit.

By the way - yes, still here. :co:

How did we do all that stuff and survive ? Back then 30 seemed ancient and we felt indestructible - couldn't work out how the odd late night threw the straights who had normal jobs :doh:

RE the numbering, didn't Dave start and restart numbering sequences with each change at one point? I seem to remember him doing something along these lines.

With regards to the 2 MKII's with No.66 made within a short time of one another in late 2005, Dave simply made a boo boo. :tu:
