Quality DIY Sound

“I got the Subette (just one) and they (Pipettes and Subette – ed.) really do sound fantastic as a full range system. Looks great and sounds even better. Congrats on a killer product. I hope sales go through the roof soon.” Ben C.

Don’t forget to opt in to receive notifications so you can get the latest info about special offers and new products when you register on the forum. We won’t hammer you with junk. You’ll just see a Bottlehead Newsletter a couple times a month.

Bottlehead also has a YouTube channel. It is a repository for lots of tips and tricks to help you build your kit. We have a series by Doc B., The Doctor Is In, that shows some in depth tips and tricks for selected aspects of the build process. The first episode is about assembling the wood base that comes with your kit, and some simple ideas for finishing it. The second covers painting your chassis and the third has tips for mounting the various pieces of hardware to your chassis. The fourth video is all about soldering up your kit.
