Upgraded Binding Posts on My Tube Amps
« on: March 07, 2020, 02:39:48 PM »
Just thought I'd share this here.  The factory binding posts on my ANK EL34 monoblocks were terribly cheap and struggled with anything other than bare wire or bananas.  They also became badly oxidized.  So I picked up these WBT knockoffs from Parts Express.  I'm really impressed with the quality.  Great tactile feel and very secure connections for my spades. 

Installation was pretty straight forward.  I did have to oversize the existing holes and manually file new slots to keep the posts from spinning when tightening.  All in all, I'm very happy with how these turned out.  Also gave me the opportunity to do some spring cleaning inside the amps.
