    Good!!

    It will be a choice between this and a Heyboyer. I want to wait for the Classic Tone because I am sure that it will be a better value for the $$$..

    Out of interest, what combo/chassis are you using? An actual 5e3 Deluxe?

    Cool. I've been wanting to try and add new life to an old SL-X for a while. Your prices are really good so it's not so painful to maintain my amps anymore.

    Although, every time I work on my 900 I feel like I might be polishing a turd... :lol:

    Me and a buddy of mine just received an OT, PT and choke for both of our 2204's that we ordered through Triode. Thanks dudes.

    it was a solid state raven rg60. apparently that amp didn't like to be dimed, since it started humming even with all the knobs at zero
    the holes i had to drill in the chassis are pretty godawful ugly, but you can't really see it unless you're real observant

    here's the thread i posted in the other amps section with terrible pictures from my old phone... http://www.marshallforum.com/other-amps/19747-5e3-fender-tweed-deluxe-clone-build.html
    (that celestion g12L has GOT to go...... SOOOOO FARTY... gonna put the eminence texas heat in there because it sounds pretty rad)

    Pricing of the JCM 900 100W trannies? Although, we have yet to detrmine the pricing since they are still in the final stages of development, I am thinking they will be in the $70 range in 1 piece quantity.

    i can't claim i could tell different transformers apart, but it sounds good and even a dummy like me was able to hook it up

    i like the texas heat with the 5e3 setup because it's not an overly bassy speaker.... seems to tame the low end a bit

    Hey eljeffebrown,

    Yes, we will offer the 50W JCM900's as well but need to do some more research on them. We also have about 10 other items we are actively designing and will offer late this year and into early next year including the JCM900 100W trannies. Hopefully, we will offer the JCM900 50W trannies in early 2011.

    Thank you sir for your interest and also, thanks for your support on Facebook as well! :)

    The same transformer will work for all of them as long as they are the corresponding 50w or 100w transformers.

    Just swapped out the PT and choke on a 2204 and christ that amp came to life in a mean way. It was awesome! Would've changed the OT as well but I accidentally left the spec sheet on it at home and couldn't remember the wiring scheme. Oops.

    These transformers tightened up the amp and gave much more volume and headroom. I am very excited. One down, one more 2204 to go.

    Nice! Might have to pick up one of those DSL trannies.

    I really dug the 50 watt OT I used in my Ceriatone. I got a whole PT/OT/Choke set from Triode for a 100 watt build for less than one Mercury tranny too, great iron and even better prices IMHO. Keep it up guys!:cheers:
