A tube amplifier is beautiful. Show it well.
Any DIY amplifier you build is just awesome! But it doesn't have to look like it was built into a cake pan or plywood box from 8th grade shop class. The AE1 is made with deliberate sizing and style in a mid-century modern design, using hardwood and aluminum. It perfectly fits the tubes and transformers in a clean and elegant form. Transformer covers are custom enamel painted. You will not find this quality of custom chassis and visual style in any other kit.
