My Bottlehead Moreplay Preamp
« on: 17 Oct 2020, 06:00 pm »
I just finished building my Bottlehead Moreplay preamp. It uses a single 6V6 tube per channel, wired as a triode and features three pairs of inputs, three position selector switch and two pairs of outputs.

Great job, congratulations.
What your opinion on these Reflector 6V6?
What wiring do you have used?

Love the color!! How does it sound compared to the Quickie it looks like it's sitting next to.

Compared to the Quickie the Moreplay has a more defined bass and the highs are nicely handled without being shouty. I have only about twenty hours on it.

The 6V6 Reflector tubes came with the kit, so far they sound pretty good, I have only twenty hours on the tubes. I just ordered an adapter so I can use 7C5 local tubes. As for wiring, I used what came with the kit. CAT5 for the RCA's to volume and selector switch and 22GA solid core for the rest.
