The Amp Guts Appreciation Thread PART 2 ! !


Wow......Bob's board layout is awesome/intelligent.
I dig the way he ran his heaters.....again, a very intelligent/creative approach to that nightmare.
It will be a pleasure to perform maintenance (in 30 years) on that chassis.
Thanks for posting.......just beautiful.


I find it amazing that an amp as awesome as the DR103 is comprised of so little!
Less is more, bro... less is more. For real! Guitar -> amp, done. (Suits me, anyway... not saying it's for everyone... cause I know it ain't...)

And... within the amp? Input -> output with as little amount of foo-far-all, to me, is the best kinda circuit. Love the Emery Superbaby... straight through capability... I like the big iron better though, so that's what I'm rolling with these days... but hope to revisit a SB in the not-too-distant future...

Proof that Mr. Bogner is a mad genius! This little Bogner Prototype that looks messy, but sounds amazing:

How about a Blankenship Leeds 21? Of all the low wattage amps i have owned, I miss this one the most...

Ceriatone 2204... before adding back the bright cap which Nik deletes from the original circuit. :D
