Any plans for a 30, 40 or 50 watt push pull bottle head tube amp ? Would be really cool.

We have embarked on some experiments with higher powered amps.  Although we are unlikely to offer a push-pull kit in the future, we do have the technology to do a zero global feedback SET amp that gives 25+ watts per channel with less than 500V of B+.

The amps below are 50W, 28W, and 30W respectively.

The high powered amp project is in process. It has taken a bit more time than we had hoped to get some prototype transformers made for testing. Hopefully these will arrive soon and we will be able to move the project forward.

Very cool!

The "LETHAL" warning sticker is a nice aesthetic...hope that makes it into production.

Are you doing any estimation on release?  Looking for 2023 or later?  Or is it still in the planning pipeline?

Waiting for prototype transformers in order to build a prototype to see whether it sounds good.

In other words, still in very early development.
