With the Merlot - Black Top build the valve sockets were recessed into the top plate.Therefore valves with large basses e.g. KT88 could not be installed. This issue has been corrected with the second build and now all bases sizes can be accommodated. Fortunately the amplifier sounded excellent with the EL34 Back Sables. This amplifier has also delivered excellent music with 6V6 Black Glass (original Australian made valves).
