I’m ongoing to rebuild my Aikido Preamp which has been suspended for quite long time. The target is simple: a complete wood chassis and some upgraded parts then we are done (no more upgrade or whatsoever for this Preamp). You can check link above to check the current parts used on the Preamp.
I have ordered new chokes from Sowter, Electra-Print, and Lundahl. Brian (Sowter) and Jack (Electra-Print) needs to custom my order, so they will be delayed around 2 weeks for production times. Meanwhile Per (Lundahl) got a ready to use one (LL1673) then I ordered from Kevin (K&K Audio) and delivered right to my home around 2 weeks with Priority Mail service.
Kevin helped me to match both chokes. Although from the appearance, I think they were not manufactured on same batch (you can see different font size), but from some short measurements, they are indeed quite “matched”.
