the skyqueen’s panel and sexy knobs are off for their annodising bath. shouldnt hurt a bit. i dont really think that the panel is going to come back quite with so much uranium tan or anything like the above shot. we’ll see what advanced anodisers in tokoroa can do with it eh. anyways in the midst of all the other secret work … the skyqueen is almost alive. ive changed out the 5 inch round celestion speaker for an australian rola ‘c’ 5″X3″ original 60s unit. the sound has superior bass punch and flatter top end zing now. for sale soon at 1500nz$ +gst for the skyqueen MB1 tube preamp and speaker/headphones playback amp. in a beautiful small textured vinyl covered plywood cabinet with very curvacious perspex handle.
