KT88 SE Basic or Master Kit Photos
I currently have 10 Basic Kits available for sale.
The transformers and chassis will be available in 2 - 4 weeks at which time I will have 25 full Master Kits available for sale.
The photos of the completed amp are attached.
An important fact about the Basic Kit.
If you are providing your own chassis, make sure that it is at least 17"W X 10"D X 3"H.
If you would like to order, send a PM with your PayPal email and your shipping address. I will send a PayPal invoice.
If you're providing your own transformers, please pay attention to the transformer specifications as shown on the Master Kit transformer list.
I picked up my kit at the post office this morning. Everything looks great.
I've got some fabrication to do before I can start assembling, and it will be a few more weeks before I get my transformers, so that's gonna drive me nuts! :D
Thanks, Scott for making this available to everyone. I'm really looking forward to getting this up and running.
I have attached a chart with input/output voltage readings taken for this amplifier. I took readings for both 8 ohm & 5 ohm loads in both the triode & UL modes. The input and corresponding output voltage readings were taken at the level right before clipping of the output waveform. The volume control was set for minimum resistance, fully clockwise. The input signal level was adjusted on the function generator. The output readings were taken across the speaker terminals. Resistive dummy loads were used on the amplifier output.
Any update on the availability of the full kit??
I have sold 3 of the 10 Basic parts kits I currently have for sale.
25 Master Kits will be available for sale starting 2/7/2011.
