Virtual center tap

Now for something a little funky.

We need to run some of the wires around the chassis and to some of the important components, but in an effort to reduce some of the "noise" in the amp (stray RF), we're going to twist these wires as tight as we can.

I twirled these stiff green wires together, and then proceeded to solder them to the right pins on the tube sockets.

Once the wires are twisted it's a little difficult to work out which pin on one end is mapping to which pin on the other. Time to mark the ends of one of the pieces of wire with a pen so I can trace it effectively.

Things are starting to take shape.
