    Zagray! Amp is a Healer?

    Sometimes, seemingly unrelated events can lead to unexpected results. This was one such sequence that brought a great reward for me – no, nothing that I could take to the bank. But it gave me a feeling there might be a hidden purpose and meaning in what we do. Sometimes we get lucky to have it...

    Something for PCB haters

    Had another PV Classic 30 on my bench yesterday. Customer claimed power tubes going bad causing all kinds of crackling and burping noises. Just touching any one tube produced earthquake sound effects. The cause of it all: Resoldering all tube sockets and a good number of other vitrified...

    BoozterDeBoozter - redux

    Please see post #008 (edit November 15th) It began with a rough concept prototype I built for last year Nashville show: It didn't work too well....it's now buried in a big box in the attic together with other electronic cadavers. There's quite a number of them now... Fast forward to today...

    F.Y.I. website partially off the grid

    The "Zagray!" goes from prototype to product

    First of all I need to thank everyone who gave the prototype a work out and expressed their encouragement at the NY AmpShow in June. It's now time to turn it into a product. The "Zagray!" has been in development since around January 2009 when I first began toying with ideas for a new amp. My...

    Fixing amps in your sleep....

    ...can be dangerous if you get shocked in your dream. I can take a lot of juice while awake but the shock I got in my dream last night takes the prize. It literally lifted me a foot above my bed and I can still feel some numbness in my right arm. No, it's not a delayed April 1st joke, my dreams...

    Not only tube amps need a cap job...

    but broadband modems too. Mine started to behave badly a few days ago, I opened it and found these Nichicons leaked and dried up after 3 years of continuous use. Replaced them and I'm back on line.
