50 Watt Plexi Kits!!!!

Post by VelvetGeorge » Tue Oct 30, 2007 3:22 pm

Announcement:

50 watt plexi kits are coming together nicely. I'm pleased to say that preorders will begin in the Metroamp store on

Thursday November 1st.

A special introductory price of $999 will be in place until

Thursday November 15th

when kits begin shipping. Normal retail pricing of $1050.00 USD begins Friday Nov 16th.

Sozo caps are standard on this kit!

I'll have various options available:

JJ or Mullard and Tung Sol tubes

Metroamp or Mercury Magnetics transformers

Allen Bradley NOS CC resistor add on

Lead or Bass specs


Thanks!

Great work George! I really like the options as well, they are going to sell like mad, when a person can do their own labor then compare the price to a new production amp, its a no brainer, quality, tone, price cant be beat. I want one :twisted:

:D :D :D

Hey George, that sounds great, can't wait to get my order in.

Quick question, will there be other options like minus tubes, or minus head case, etc.? You know, the standard options you have on your other kits. I don't need the tubes, so I think I'd order it without them.

Are the cap cans in your kit 32uf F&T ? What brand pots come with the kits?

The filter cans are both CE brand dual 50uf's. These caps test as good as F&T's on my cap tester and are about 30% less expensive.

Thanks, I'll respond tomorrow morning. I haven't replied yet because I'm still waiting for several parts to arrive.

Please elaborate? Do you mean put a master volume on this beauty???

Absolutely.

You will have seen the threads in the mods forum.

It makes the amp so much more usable. A good 50watter is bloody loud when it is at 'that' sound we all crave. Most venues, let alone rehearsals can cope with a fully cranked 50 watter.

The other option is an attenuator (most of which sound so-so to me) and a pedal. I like to adjust the controls to get to crunchy territory and adjust the MV to auditorium size :wink: and THEN use a boost for the dirt.

You may be more fortunate in playing big venues with compliant volumes.
Neil
