Re: Winter Project #1

Cool, same power amp circuit as the original 70s versions?
I've got a couple of 10k tocos cosmos pots, I still like them too, the channel matching is crap on them (think it was that particular value) so I bought a load of them and used 2 of them as mono ones.

Re: Any recommendations for an electro acoustic

Yes eventually, had to shim it to alter the neck angle enough and take the string guide out at the top of the neck then add a little sliver of wood to pack it up a little higher

Re: Nothing In Particular

OK so I've opened up the TX case, there are no caps at all in there. It's just the TX itsself. It's a toroid, and have had a really good look over it and there appears to be no damage, all the rubber mounting washers are there, all connections in and out are insulated properly too, so there doesn't ...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Curiouser and curiouser. The Cole phono stage has just tripped the breaker on my balanced mains unit. I built it following our ali's advice to fit the double pole breaker on the secondary side. This will trip if there is a 40ma imbalance between the 2 sides. Its never tripped before, I wondered what...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Oh dear... The 3009 needs a rewire.....
Thought I could just get away with doing a phono socket conversion, but the blue wire has a break in it somewhere. Piggin ell. At least it's a fairly easy job with one of these

Re: Nothing In Particular

Had an odd couple of problems on tuesday with the system. Suddenly a load of hum, loads of odd buzzing regardless of input selected, and a seemingly knackered dynavector dv20a2. I was most purterbed. I'd pulled the preamp out to test a build I'd just finished, and after this tested fine put the usua...
