I thought it was kinda funny, seeing someone here say "don't tell TGP about it" and then one gets listed for a good price and is instantly gone... Wish I had been that lucky SOB. I'm sure it will turn on on TGP/Reverb in a week for a 50% profit.

One did sell on reverb for $700 about 3-4 months ago

Every time I have financial trouble I think about that. But then I plug it in and go "fuck it, if I'm broke at least I'll sound fantastic" :animal:

That $700 one on reverb is probably the $300 one from TGP ;_;

I know the subminiature tubes are part of the radness here, but I'm kind of wondering if JFETs could do the same job. A "Mini Years" perhaps that would be easier to build? I know SS/BS already has plenty of JFET drive options but thought about it a bit today. The multiple gain stages and the ability to place the filter inbetween / in multiple is really cool and unique. Just wish I could try one.

It'd require some circuit changes. Plus, I imagine it'd sound quite different, too.
Looks like it uses Raytheon 5678 sub-mini tubes (which are pentodes), so MOSFETs would do better than JFETs, for one. Two, unless Bri opted to do it himself, I doubt anyone would bother/dare to trace the circuit.
Since I always forget:

I want it from Brian, yeah. Just trying to think of how to make it easier to produce and possibly a bit lower cost. I'd imagine a "Mini Years" with FETs would still cost more than a Fuck or a TAFM.

I did it myself. Just a normally-open switch to each side of the FM toggle. Not the most elegant solution but it definitely works. Gonna put some Barefoot Buttons on the two softies.

I sent Brian mine to fix a ringing problem and add 2 switches :
- left : activate clipping
- right : activate filter section
