Re: The Mother of all Sunfire Vacuum Tube Pre Amp Upgrades

Well, it was damn nice of everyone who took the time to help me. without it, i don't think joe could have done this level of intense rebuild. These are all the parts Joe replaced. All the RCA/balanced jacks, there's even caps in there although i wouldn't recommend using those. I've had it on and pla...

Re: The Mother of all Sunfire Vacuum Tube Pre Amp Upgrades

okay, i couldn't help myself! I made room and set it up! wow....i think the power supply is key. we went with a tube regulator and a vacuum state super regulator along with the big Lundahl Transformers. i can tell right away there is definitely more slam and control. The mid range is beautiful... th...

Re: The Mother of all Sunfire Vacuum Tube Pre Amp Upgrades

I do plan on it. I run my own business and it’s going to take a bit of effort to make it happen. Plus load up my stuff. I’ll need to employ my younger cousins to help because after my last health crisis.. I am in no shape to be lugging a bunch of heavy shit around.... I’m extremely curious to find o...

Re: Can someone help?

Oh? Joe made it out to be like that was some kind of esoteric, hard to find thing. He said he uses metric stuff on his equipment. I can let him know. I thought the simplest idea was to have him drill and tap the knob for whatever he uses to attach stuff. He’s trying to get this finished up before he...

Can someone help?

Joe is almost done with my epic multi year pre amp build. He sent a text asking if I could scounge up a set screw for the volume knob on my Sunfire Vacuuum Tube pre. I already asked Bill and no dice. Can anyone help? Not asking for free.. I’d be happy to pay for it!

Thank you!!!!

Re: The Mother of all Sunfire Vacuum Tube Pre Amp Upgrades

Joseph is putting it all back together. We decided the bybee rails weren’t needed. He’s got to modify the front panel to fit the volume control shaft and a couple of other assembly things.. But for all intents and purposes, it’s finished!!! Sweet Jesus!! Pics soon! I asked about measurements, and he...
