    Ive had my diy dampers on for 3 weeks now and theyre still stuck in the same position so thats good! I made mine from the article in hi-fi world, cost is about £3 for 4 so worth a try if your so inclined. Its hard to say if they've made a difference Id like to say there is a tighter top-end but this could well be something Im wanting to hear if you know what I mean.

    Anyway, Ive scanned the article and pasted it to publisher, if anyone wants a copy let me know and I'll send it to you.

    Are you talking about the cable clips?
    If you want to make proper heat resistant ones that you can use on power tubes, get some teflon gas pipe tape (gas is thicker than the usual plumbers tape) and a couple of those keyring loop things big enough to fit round your tubes (the hardware shop near me sells them big enough for 6550, KTs etc). Stack the rings on top of each other and cocoon them in tape.
    Pain to make but they work really well and won't slip off etc. with heat. Mine have been going for over a year.

    I don't want to sound like a hifi mag. Sound improves in every way, try them, they only cost a couple of quid to put together. Its like putting spikes on speakers etc.
