    This amp was totally modded by a notorious Swedish modder with 4 channels, effect loop and footswitch in the 3 of the 4 hole inputs. Above each pot there were two additional minipots drilled through the front. The board did not contain much original parts but above all it was drilled beyond repair.

    I have "cleaned" out the amp, replaced the preamp sockets as two were replaced and one bad. Thanks to Rikard I got a set of vintage potentiometers as these were replaced. And our all favourite Neikeel is providing me with a original board!!!! :)

    The transformers wergeld but I changed the MT out for a rewound one since I have another amp that was in presitine condition except the MT. I switched them around.... :)

    Will be a cool player

    imagine how much it cost to originally mod it to that extent! Would've been cheaper to buy another amp!

    i was more implying the original owner who had the amp modded. I understand why you are restoring it.

    ..yeah, i always wondered why people keep sending him their amps. .there's always a few amps moded by him at the sale site "blocket" and it doesn't seem like the mods really add to the perceived value of the amps...?...
