    Hi,

    I would like to see some internal photos of Steavens amps or preamps, or even better have some schematics of them.
    I like their sound, but they are impossible to find and even then they are impossible to be repaired by the original producer AFAIK.

    Anyone has one that can take photos to, or has the schematic?

    Thank you in advance,
    Regards

    I took this pic when I was selling my Brick a few years ago, maybe it can be of some help even if you can´t tell what´s going on closest to the pots.

    Thank you bery much Dave!
    I'll try to see closer the values of the resistors, even if it's not easy from most of the photos.

    I have a few photos of a Steavens poundcake head. I can't figure out how to attach them here.

    I use flckr
    it isn't very easy

    I first edit the photo for web friendly resolution in a photo editor (change pixel count to something more like 1200px wide/ 150ppi

    then upload to flickr

    then copy the correct code from the flckr/ image host "share" tools. you will need to understand code a little; particularly the tags
    Use the "More Options..." to edit the code until when you "preview" your post it looks how you want it...it's kinda painful the first couple times until you get it down.

    I'll have to do it on the weekend when I have a moment.
    I just sold it last month, great versatile amp especially with the mod. I still have some pictures, it's not point to point. It's circuit board.

    Steavens point to point amps have way more saturation than their circuit board run. They sound different than the circuit board ones. I remember back in the early 90's when I was at Namm in Anaheim and I played through it. It was a great all around head with plenty of gain and a great blackface clean channel. I now nothing back then, but it did sound like a nodded amp bit's time its time.

    Thanks, it’s something I always wanted to have, but not easy to find nowadays. They also have kept very high prices compared to others.
