Bogen M330 in da house

Postby Tman on Thu Aug 04, 2016 7:49 am

I got this yesterday. (3) 12AX7 preamp, (2) 6L6GC power amp and a EZ34 rectifier.....all the makings of a 5F6-A are there. :thumbsup:

Image

I popped the tube shields off of the 12AX7's and had a nice surprise. :excited:

Image

I love when that happens. :mrgreen:

Ever seen a Bogen combo? Wonderful amplifiers...

Bought a organ amp off eBay for a bit less than 100, and all the tubes were mullard

SCORE! :mrgreen:

The tubes are worth more than the amp!

Yep, that's were I'm at with this one. I'll stick them in the tester tomorrow while I'm checking the 6L6GC's and the EZ34.

Actually they're fine, the tester is the dud. Something drifted in it recently. Time to find someone that can calibrate it.

lol, I have the Sencore TC162 which has a calibration module, you just plug it in, adjust a screw, and it's done!

This one has a pot inside that I suspect is for calibration purposes. I've got to open it up and take a look at the manual.

Meanwhile........

ANOTHER BOGEN ON THE WAY! :mrgreen:

Yeah, this latest one is #5. :lol:

It's going on the bench this morning. I'm hoping to fire it up later today.
