Built their Princetone Clone and a 6v6 JCM800 type (2202HW) with their buffered loop.
point to point? I don't see any of that here... but -
Pretty neat packages, and you have built them very well!
Yeah I didn't mean the old school post type, but just really clean, easy to follow work. Bravo.
yeah, you're cool. My apologies. I just slipped into that "TDPRI know-it-all" mode. And yes, you are right, this is a very clean build.
Oh boy, how do they sound. I cant get over the C Wreck demo...... Must......resist.......temp.......tation!!!!!!
Technically, neither are point to point.
Thanks all!! They both sound very good to me. For the Princeton clone I put in all the 1w CC's, the kit came with a mix of 1/2w CC and CF, most everything else came in the kit though I did use EBY sockets and the tubes currently are Raytheon's but I have a pair of RCA's coming from KNC tubes.
I just finished the 2202HW and again I swapped out resistors with a lot of Piher and Iskra 1w's, the bug green pio cap is also not stock to the kit. I opted for the buffered fx loop kit which is switchable and originally I had it after the master volume and was contemplating taking it out until Nik from Ceriatone said that it really needs to go in between the treble pot and the MV. It made a really significant improvement. I have never heard my carbon copy sound so good, really kind of stunning. Have Brimar's in the amp and EBY sockets except the PI which is a Tungsram.
Got the amps because I had planned on building a 2 channel Matchless clone (Spitfire & Nighthawk) had all the parts but had planned to add reverb and a buffered loop and do it point to point and thought that for a first build I had bitten off a wee bit too much. So I thought building two well thought out kits was a good intermediate step. Both amps took a good 5-6 days of concerted effort and a day or 2 to iron them out after first ignition. Nik from Ceriatone was really great to deal with, I think his kits are really high quality even if you didn't sub any parts. Only problem now is my drive to do the Matchless clone has pulled off to the shoulder, eased the seat down and closed it's eyes
