I been tryng to get some specs on some of the parts of this amp.
I been to several sites that sell hammong transformers or have data about them but i guess the model is a bit too old?
Also the schematic for the amp is quite similar but inaddition the amp had a treble potentiometer...makes me wonder if its a in between model of the amp....
i have moded the original schematic and got rid of a few uneeded wiring. Also i am going to add 2 resistors instead of the field coil speakers...there is a section in the output transformer that its for an "external amp"....Could i use this output and combine it with the existing and produce more output?
also i am going to replace the capacitors i notice that it says 8MFD...is that nowdays 8uF?
Here is a coppy of the schematic

Any sugestions into turning this into a guitar amp ?
For now i think i will change the entire layout but i am tryng to get specs on the chokes & transformers...
Will apreciate your help....THanks!!

Sorry about the horrible post. I was VERY hungry when i posted that and i guess all i was thinking was about was food lol.
Well here its a clarification of the message i wanted to output :P
#1) what are the specs on
A- Transformer AO-20927-1 (howmany mA can it deliver on its secondaries?
B- full specs on chokes AO-16682-2
C- Spects on output transformer....
#2) where could i find information about these above inductors.
#3) on the original schematic the values of C11, C12 & C13 are in MFD.
D) Q: Can i replace them for the modern values of uF at the same voltages and maybe different values?
#4) on the modified schematic (on previous post)
E)Can i possibly connect the un-used terminals in the output transformer to produce a higher output?. (see section 4 in pic)
I know this will problably knock out the feedback level but i can problably use a resistor to reduce it.
(i just started on tubes but i have a background on other high voltage items)
F) On section 3 i have added a resistor load to compensate the amputation of the field coils....is that a good idea?
i could not find any specs on the field coil speakers inductance....
I have a multimeter but it cant read current ;/....i am poor tryng to a amp.
I will apreciate if somebody puts me in a right direction towards this. I been reading araund for this kind of amps and i found a few usefun guides but most guides are either too much math or too simple....not in between ;/.
I figured that you more experienced people will share some tricks of the trade on this stuff....and possibly some have alredy repaired this amp or know more about it than i do.
I will apreciate any and all help
