Default Ray Butts Echosonic #27

Hello everyone! I am new to this forum and I am the owner of Ray Butts's EchoSonic #27. It has never been modified and works well. After a bit of internet research, it may have been possible that Ray had kept a card file with details on each amp he made. Does anyone have any information on the year of this amp, who bought it, date of purchase, etc? I was told that this may have been Ricky Nelson's amp but that is as of yet unconfirmed. This amp has some issues - is there a schematic and/or parts list available for reference? I can be reached at echosonic27 at gmail dot com. Any information on this historical amplifier would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Default Ray Butts EchoSonic Amp Restoration

Good day Everyone,

For anyone still interested, I have completed the restoration of this EchoSonic amp #27. Please feel free to look at my photo archive of the entire process in detail here:


I have since acquired a 2nd all-original Ray Butts EchoSonic amp; it's 100% complete with tape delay board, foot switch, and canvas cover. I am in the process of restoring it now. Click the image to open in full size.

As well, I was featured for my restoration in Vintage Guitar Magazine - April 2012 issue, in the Ray Butts EchoSonic article pages 46 & 48. For anyone interested, I've scanned the article in Adobe PDF format but cannot attach it to this forum. You can email me, or Google 'frank roy vintage guitar" and find it attached in a thread at Rickresource. I have been contacted by many amp owners including other EchoSonic owners, wanting their amps repaired and/or restored. If anyone would like to discuss anything with me, I can be emailed at: echosonic27 AT gmail DOT COM. I have many original replacement parts available, lots of documentation and historical information, and have worked on several of these rare amps. I would be happy to hear from anyone wanting to chat about these terrific amplifiers.
