Gap pre-73 mod
 
Hey,
Like my name says i am new to the DIY thing. I got some basic electronic skils. But normaly i take something out of the box, plug it in, and play with it.
But now i am ready to jump in the deep end.
My first project is modding 2 Gap pre's
Pro-life.be audio-shop
2 Carnhill transformers are ordered already. CA-18-VTB1148
This far i am :)
Welcome to Carnhill Transformers Limited

But my questions:
-what more can you do with the pre's? any expierience? Some guys/ girls who did it already and did it get better?

I am not afraid to experiment, so crazy or original tips are always welcome..

thanks!!

Maybe none of us has this preamp or has worked on one, do you have any more details about it, a schematic would be great, youd recieve tons of ideas then.

At about 300 euros each these preamps shouldn't need modding! What are you trying to do and I do hope they are not new ones :)

Thanx for the reply's.

The pre's are good indead. Worth the money and so on. But for me it's more a project of learnig about circuits and components.
I have already preamps in a lunchbox from API that costs the double than these. I just want to pimp it up to this level (or not, like i said it's a project).
So like the carnhill transformers... I want to find out what can they do, is it worth the money doing changes.
Next step is building something from fivefishaudio diy preamps , and than something from zero. But for that i have to learn some more from al the fanatics on this forum ... :)

btw: looked for the schematics, didn't find them. I will contact Bart from pro-life.be for these.

I am very satisfied with the sound of the Pre73. The modd is so cheap it could be fun to try it.
