    Default FS: Top lid for the Croft Charisma or Epoch Elite (Polished stainless steel)

    Hi all.

    I have this for sale after upgrading to an official black aluminium top lid for my Croft Epoch Elite.

    Its polished stainless Steel and looks lovely.

    It has some very minor scratches, nothing bad.

    Very rare to find on their own nowadays.

    Asking 60 plus post.

    PayPal giftywoo would be cool.

    Coo I like that Josie, bling in an understated way (is that a possibility?).

    Pity I haven't got a Croft to go with it. So GLWS.

    Hi Josie, any chance you could post a pic of what used to be underneath this lid?

    Yes, and the "upgrading to an official black aluminium top lid", which replaced this lid, and as far as I know none of us have seen so far

    I have to say, I think the black lid is a downgrade, sorry Josie. At least I'm not thread crapping

    Thanks guys. Never thought of it as bling... lol

    Sure, James. I can post something up if your interested.

    The aluminum lid is worth the change in it's sonic values over aesthetics. I was really surprised how much difference it made.

    The stainless lid does look absolutely lovely though and whoever is lucky enough to grab this won't be disappointed.

    If it doesn't go then I'll just keep it.

    That's interesting, Jo. Could you start a separate thread about that (with pics), outlining the sonic improvements you perceived? The Artists Palette would be the place

    Good luck with the sale of the stainless steel lid. Most of the time, mine is off, to facilitate doing tube rolling, so it's not really an issue!

    Interesting, must be related to resonance and microphonics.

    Precisely, as the stainless steel lid is already non-magnetic (non-ferrous), so can't be causing any interference in that way.
