Tubular Joes Mod

Post by hewlew1 » Sun Aug 05, 2012 10:18 pm

I just finished the mod suggested by Tubular Joe in May of this year as posted by Angelo. All 4 of them have been done including the 560K bleeder resistors on the filter caps. Prior to my doing this I had one tube in one amp that was red plating after about 5 minutes playing time. Happy to report that I listened to that same amp without changing any of the tubes for at least an hour without incident. \:D/

hey guys and gals, i was looking into buying a bunch of the caps for the amps, but i don't need 100 of them. so, who would be interested in getting some. normally 5-9 each depending where there are bought, but a few dollars less like 3-4 if i get a hundred of them plus a postage fee. what say you......

sorry, 390mf 450 volt. as a side note, joe said a 330uf would be fine as well. i can buy the few tubes i need for like 50 or so dollars. but for 180-190, i could buy a 100 of them and then when you add a few bucks for shipping, it would be far less, about half of what it takes to get them one or two at a time.
