Cant wait to get started!

Question: what is the function of the low value resistor in parallel with 2 crossed diodes and a capacitor in the power supply? Never seen an arrangement like that.

That gives a little bit of separation between the audio ground and earth, which is especially helpful in avoiding noise if you plug a computer into the input of the preamp.

Just received my kit today! I hope to paint the top plate tomorrow, weather permitting.

Got mine yesterday. Packed perfectly, got all parts and have the base glued and can’t wait to get home today to start on the bell cover. It will be painted white and the base stained ebony just like my original stereomour.

Thanks Bottlehead. Love the hat too!!!
