Bottlehead Crack v1.1 Build Progress
« on: Sun, 18 September 2016, 09:27:30 »
Thanks to my successful keyboard builds and modifications, I now have the confidence to go ahead with this project. Last night, I was able to get over half of it done and would love to hear some feedback from those of you with soldering experience and/or Bottlehead DIY kits. Anyways, here she is.



















Full album can be found here: http://imgur.com/a/qqEmZ

I am dying to hear some feedback and/or tips.

Nice job man! I just built my own a few months ago! Did you paint your transformer housing bell end?

I have lusted for a Bottlehead preamp for years. Maybe someday ....
The difference in characterization of crime and who commits it skews what criminality looks like demographically. "What we're seeing so far is very similar to the process that we see with Islamic violent Jihad radicalization," said former FBI Assistant Director Frank Figliuzzi, "This wanting to belong to a cause greater than yourself, wanting to get affirmation from a group who may not even know who you are or ever met you. And then feeling like you're part of this deployment, this cause. You heard him say on the clip 'It's my job to protect this.'
No, it's not your job. But you think it is. And video last night shows him walking around roaming around with the assault rifle not really doing much of protecting anything." Figliuzzi made it clear that calling these characters "troubled" is a misnomer. "I would assert," Figliuzzi continued. "that it's time we stopped using the word ‘troubled’ with regard to white young people who act out like this and start thinking about the radicalized term that we used when people of color or people of Islamic faith act out like this. This is a radicalization process that's happening. It happened with the El Paso shooter in Texas. We kept hearing he was troubled. No, he was radicalized. And it's happening online."

They are very well done, Easy to build, the manuals are superb. You can finish them in whatever color combo you wish, It took me a weekend to put my crack+speedball together, it was all very worth it. The experience is an enjoyable one, just follow the manual and you'll be good to go.

I just saw your post in the headphone thread! Definitely deserve props for making your own Bottlehead Crack. I cheaped out and went with a Schiit Asgard 2. They weren't kidding when they said those heat up!

Awesome!  I'm actually in the reverse position - built my Bottlehead Crack about a year ago and now I'm actually looking to build a 60 / 65% kit..... Now if only I could source a Whitefox kit.
