hello again, probably a dumb question, but in order to find the live wire will i need to plug in the power chord?
also--in the photo it looks like the power cable neutral wire is connect to a wire on the PT. Would that be the 0v on the PT?
thanks. I'm in France. Not sure if we have the same as you, but i would guess it's the same. I"ll get this thing.
for the rest, i think i understand, except the neutral--in the photo it looks like the power cable neutral wire is connect to a wire on the PT. Would that be the 0v on the PT?
Hello again, I unfortunately got very frustrated with this and had to give it up for a little while, while i worked on other things. I am now ready to try to build this. I am beyond confused with the power transformer portion of this build.
1. i see that my two green wires are the 6.3v.
Cool! I am advancing! I stripped the power chord and understood my confusion and why it wasn't more of a instruction on what to do with that--it's pretty straightforward :) I have a question about the orientation of the OT--I have read that with the non toroidal PT that you should orientate the...
:) nice, love the pay-bas! Thanks, I will for sure use the 240 wires. For IEC connector I have this as the power chord. This is the thing I am missing-but what I don't understand is how I get the power chord wires--the hot, neutral and ground. I still don't see where that comes from.
Good idea about making the square! I am not even sure where I can source the connector. This build is probably not meant for first time people. There is some information that is left out, or assumed the person knows. I got everything on the BOM, but no idea about this IEC and I didn't know I...
Nice. I will need to look into all this a bit more. I am able to make holes, but not squares. My chassis I will have to make all the holes myself. I'll come back here in a few days and ask the questions I will probably have. Thanks!
Wangdaning, I was thinking that is what I need to do--to cut and strip the housing back. Thanks!!
I will have captive mains lead I think. I am still organizing all this. I've been working on pedals these last few weeks, while I waited for parts to arrive for the amp. I"m in the EU yes.
yes, I know that :) I didn't pose the question well I think. I bought everything except whatever has these three wires. I don't see where the come from. My power chord doesn't have open wires. I'm just confused where those three wires come from.
Wow!!! So helpful! Critical. thank you! I will be doing this very very soon. I think because I got the wrong size chassis I will wait until later this week when it arrives. Since I am a beginner I think this smarter to have a bigger chassis, at least way more space than the one I originally...
Hello, I wanted to ask you, and anyone else a few questions as I begin to embark on this first amp build odyssey. I got the PT here and I wanted to see if I am correct about these numbers
--All in one heat sync wrap--
BK wire has 0v.
Yellow wire has 120v.

Hello, I’m by no means great, but I’m not terrible I think. I have been preparing for this by building pedals on turret boards. I’ve gotten a lot better and will make one more pedal that way before I start this build. The fact you say it’s easy, gives me hope that I will be able to do this and...
