|Ampkit Style:||Blackface Style|
|Ampkit Power:||45 Watt|
I have just finished to build this kit. After 20 hours of careful work it sounds perfectly at first power on ! And it sounds amazing ! It was my first AB763, nothing really difficult since every part is perfectly packaged and clearly identified. There is no step by step guideline, but the layout included in the documentation is sufficient. I really recommend this kit and TAD !
I bought many many many amp kits in other stores, and I have to say that the TAD KITS are the best by far, great quality components, perfect packaging and every component was labeled with NO missing components or parts, fast delivery and great instructions, very close to the original amp, go for it , you will be very pleased, THANKS TAD !
Safe package!Fast shipping!Perfect component quality!Best kit on the market!Perfect assistance service if you have question!Layout is clear and the schematic of origin is respected. I have made some modification for have the same Vibroverb as SVR, here is my receipt:
1.) Paper in oil caps for the 6 filter caps @ 0.1uf instead the orange drop.
2.) Matched section of 220K resistor
3.) No tubes in V1
4.) 5751 in V2 (NOS Rayethon triple mica of 1963)
5.) 12Ax7 in V6 for PI (NOS RCA grey plate of the 60′s)
6.) All other tubes are NOS
7.) Weber Neomag 15” speaker, 75 watt, 8 ohm, neomydium magnet, light doped, aluminium dust cap, Weber beam blocker direct sewn on the grill, to eliminate the ice pick due to the aluminium cap. (the paper in oil cap are for this raison too)
8.) EVM 15L speaker (same as SVR!), 300 watt, 8 ohm, a monster!!! Ceramic Magnet, in a external cab to make the comparison ( i prefer the Weber, or the two speaker together, but not the EVM alone)
9.) SPS pot for disconnect the vibrato canal. With the intensity on 0, 50% of the current continue to drive the canal. With the SPS pot, 100% of the current drive the V2 = more harmonic, mor fat and hot tone. I give you here a tricks to eliminate the “pops” noise due to the residual current: you sold a 1Mohm resistor between the two lugs on the pots and that’s it, no more noise!!!
10.) KT66 tubes in place of 6L6.!!!! Check your tranny before, to be sure that he support that!!! (6L6 need 0,9 A and KT66 need 1,2 A for heater current). This tube are amazing and make for me a huge difference for approach the SRV sound : the sweet pot or crunch start with the volume at 3,5 / 4!!! The distortion is like broken glass, creamy, air, transparent, with a medium bump,like if a TS808 was in the circuit. Each note is distinctive, tight bass, clean medium and treble. Until i have put this KT66, i don’t use never my TS pedal!!! It’ amazing!!!
