I'm going to have a run of 250mH Whipple inductors made if anyone's interested in getting one for their build. I'll have 5 or 6 to sell.

How do they look like, like standard whipple/holo line, or close to the thing what wee see in the Grey (bare coil)?

Is there any reason why using two 500mH inductors in parallel wouldn't essentially give the same performance/sound of one 250mH inductor?

Yep, buddy of mine given me this idea to mimic 250mH inductor. I think this is the way how to archive it, but I don't think the economical solution of it. You can score NOS Thomas Organ 250mH from the source, or ebay for less than two 500mH's like whipple, or Artefect... Just my $0,02

I was going to bid, but I forgot after all. Anyway I was sure it will be as high as before - around of 100GBP

Now, I'm floored and crying

The JMI is exactly onto Grey Vox values, which isn't surprising. I think the build woulda looked a lot better without all the chicken scratch on the perf.

What's with the guys shoes in the youtube vid? Is that Kayne West rockin a wah!?!?

Here's what the Del Casher looks like. I never drew out a perf board layout so it looked fun to draw this one out.

Thanks Timmy, you're my hero ;)

@k1rkyd - sent it to Phibs if you may (PM him for the address). I have a 250mH custom made, so I'm fine
