I just finished a Revelation Tube Preamp for a guy who wanted it loaded with V-Cap's, their top of the line CuTF copper foil & teflon. The entire signal path except for the treble cap is all V-Cap's. Roughly $1500 in signal path cap's alone. Then another $60 in tantalum PLATE RESISTORS, the most amazing sounding plate resistors you've never tried. All German WBT silver solder, Cine-Mag output XLR transformers, premium polypropylene treble cap, extra filtering, HEXFRED soft-recovery diodes for the B+ supply, and more. This made a $900 preamp into a roughly $2500 preamp. It sounds f'ing glorious, I must say. These copper V-Caps and the tanatalum plate resistors are just pure musical magic. Unreal.

Here are some pic's.

Fancy. Might have to add these to the tone stack on my some point. Just for fun.

I guess you now can do the SuperCTP-w/JGMods. That...would be really fun.
