Why not get the transformer rewound by Brian Smith.
My experience of chinese wound transformers is that they are hit and miss.

Interesting idea.
It’s the 12BH7 version.
So what would that be likely to cost? I was thinking that if it’s salvageable, the transformers don’t have to fit. I’d happily build a new box to fit it all in.

You would have to ask him that.
But I have found his excellent work inexpensive.

My theory is that the Eastwood having 12 strings was approximately twice as awesome as the laws of electricity allow.

Lol you might want to re-examine how much of the things in your life are Asian made before you make that statement. What is this, 1998?

Unsure. If you saw the thing you’d understand.
My guess is power, but the output was seriously hot as well.

Then after that he yelled "bollocks"!

Ed, Boss should look at building this thing properly. It’s a Chinese design, so perfectly in order to steal it entirely.

Like!
Can I have yours for the same price I paid for the Wangs?

It's not for sale, otherwise I might have considered it.

Yeah, right. :lol:

Whatever the route chosen, I imagine its cheaper to buy a new one than repair the existing, but at least with a repair you might have some guarantee it will last...

Where's "our" blue Jansen clone from jvpp at???


Ahum, the coming school holidays will see a serious attempt to get the chassis populated with all the components and then test drive it.... with a Swiss guitar or so :wink:
