    My D60 - Fifty/CL rig

    My stereo setup! D60, D412 on one side and Fifty/CL, FB412-F70G (Fane!) on the other. Shallow stereo chorus pedal to bring it all together. Sounds absolutely monstrous and will destroy unprotected...

    that FX loop is pretty tempting... but then I remember I can just play my Pittbull if I need all the fancy stuff. there's something kind of magical about having an amp that's the bare minimum while...

    there is a bias trimpot inside, and moreover there is a current resistor in series with the cathodes and some silkscreened text telling you what the target voltage should be.

    sovtek tubes are no longer in manufacture, unfortunately.

    EH KT88s are alright but the two pairs I tried seemed to be short lived. could be bad luck.

    I really don't think it sounds like it would be the problem, but did you swap the rectifier tube when you were retubing? I know my 50CL did some weird things when the rectifier tube was going out...

    You try changing the 40W/100W power switch on the affected channels? Any change?

    just to clarify, it won't make the noise, even if you tap the headshell, when the mv is turned down? if so, that would indeed eliminate the power tubes as a culprit. it could still be the preamp...

    try hitting the preamp tubes lightly with a pencil or something and see if they're microphonic. v1 will be shielded so you'll have to pop that off first. it could also be the power tubes, too.

    Those will work fine for V1, V2, V3. Most any 12AX7 will work fine for those positions, the ones listed are suggestions for the intended sound of the amp. Personally, I prefer a Tung-Sol in V1 due to...

    When I bought my used D412 (P50e) several years ago, I assumed it was already done breaking in. Mistake! It wasn't until the past year when I started having band practice weekly at deafening volume...

    Fryette sold (probably still sells) badges to retrofit on older amps. Does the silk screen on the back panel say "VHT" or "Fryette"?

    from what I've gathered the first two numbers should be the year. so that would mean your amp was built in 2002

    The new website is kind of weird IMO. I think it only lists amps that are currently available for immediate order from Fryette. I'd bet at some point, the Deliverance II will adorn the site again....

    Regarding the signal level between the preamp and power amp, there are really only three factors that you have to watch out for: noise, saturating the front-end of the power amp, and overloading the...

    been running my D60 bored out, gain II on max and gain I to fit the style, anywhere from 2 o'clock to maxed. for recording I'll dial the gain down.

    what cab/speakers?

    those gain settings are pretty wild. I myself have found that "less" mode can still be useful for high gain sounds. just dime gain II, and the sound takes on a very round,...

    Can't comment about the Metro loop but try checking your spam folders or maybe resending an email to Fryette. I've only ever gotten quick responses from them.

    I don't think there have been any major revisions to the Sig:X, but I may be wrong. I know the Deliverances suffered a revision which made them more sponge-y sounding,...

    Looking forward to it!

    I think you'll be pleased with the relative ease of your refurbishment. For a PCB amp (which I prefer), VHTs I've found are fairly easy to break down. At least, that's been...
