Well...time to resurrect this thread. About 8 weeks ago, I contacted the Slagle/Chapman group about the possibility of upgrading my Lazarus to silver AVC status. About 8 weeks later, they arrived!
1st some pics of the previous copper
Notice the super fine 30+ gauge wire, some serious skills to solder that bugger. Kudos to Dave Slagle. And thanks to Chapman for testing them.
Next the silver AVC, observe the change in the color of the wire
Apparently it's made out of unobtanium, judging by the cost
More pics of the silver AVC by itself:
And now in my Lazarus
It's pretty much indistinguishable from the copper AVC until you get close, but sonically...well, I'll just have to wait and see
