Koichi Futatsumata’s vacuum tube amplifier

Perhaps the most aesthetically pleasing amplifier ever designed, it was just announced (PDF) that Koichi Futatsumata’s (of Case-Real) vacuum tube amplifier will go on sale later this year.

Originally named ELEKIT TUBE AMP, the prototype made its way around the blogosphere earlier this year, perhaps serving as the impetus for the piece to go into commercial production. It was renamed “22 [tu: tu:]” and will retail for 73,500 yen. They even created a special website [www.22tutu.com] which launches September 17th. There, they will begin taking orders for the amp around the end of October.



  1. I just posted about this amplifier today! I’m so glad to hear it’s going into production!
