Now with more snarl and 400% more aggression!
I really love having a power transformer with solder tags. Makes wiring it up much cleaner. Wish more companies would do it this way.
Which transformer manufacturer is it?
Some more progress today. This is the part where everything's a hot mess lol.
Beautiful and clean...great looking build!
Now that is totally awesomely beautiful , CLASSY .... eye-candy ! THATS what a REAL guitar amp is all about . Good work bro . I've had very good experience with Heyboer . I since have no interest in over-hyped MM .
At least I can follow your current build here at MF. Nice work and nice pics...
As always beautiful clean work with high quality parts.
I guess what I really want to know is how the expensive stuff holds up to the common xicons and Mallorys as my stash of mustards is running out as are my pihers and Beyschlags that I think of as the best all round parts in terms of value and availability ?
Clone , kit ? Nice work
I had not even heard of kraken. Victory right ?
Ceriatone Chupacabra, which is a generic "Jose/Cali." I've re-voiced the circuit and changed a lot of parts. I'm just calling it a "Kraken" for shits and giggles. Not a kit. I got the chassis and turret board from Ceriatone. Everything else, I sourced.
Cool , nice build. I like the layout.
Just wondered about the chassis. They made it old school.
Victory Amps in England makes a metal amp with EL34 's called a Kraken !
So I've narrowed the tone stack down to four values:
Slowly honing in on a final combo. Tried the amp through my other cab with G12H-75 Creambacks and wow... it rips with those speakers.
Never heard of Victory. But some clips of that amp sound pretty good. I see it has a purple pilot light. So great minds think alike it seems haha.
this is sweet looking.
Do you remember Cornford Amps? Those were Guthrie Govan's weapon of choice about 10 years ago. Cornford is gone. Nowadays, Mr. Govan is using Victory Amps. What both of these brand of amps have in common is their designer: Martin Kidd.
I've heard of Cornford. But never paid much attention to them. Never seen one or heard one.
you shouldn't build bombs because all your wire colors are the same.
