Re: Mark III to Mark II mod

Might have found a typo/error in the IIC+ schematic, it says delete C30 but that's going by the III's naming. Looks like C30 on a III is C32 on a II?

Re: Mark III to Mark II mod

Isn't C26 missing in Blues and Greens (and possibly earlier?)? Great work all around man.

CLIPS! Super 60w III+ vs DRG III+

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0J6Tx9zRsY Bit of a comparison between the two amps. The 60w is an export Blue Stripe that had its lead section modded to Red Stripe specs as the Blues and Greens change the lead section pretty significantly. There's a handful of mods to the rest of the preamp sectio...

Mark III+/++ impressions and a few questions

No clips/videos yet for reasons below, but there will be some high quality ones coming this week. Lots and lots and lots and lots of gain. Controllable and tight - much better with EL34s in the outer pair. The ++ mod instantly gets you into Black Album territory. Compared to my half-modded Blue Stri...

Re: DIY Rack mounted my MKV:25

Nice job, I've got a spare Mark III I need to rackmount, where did you get the shelf unit? I've not been able to find much in the way of affordable ones.

NHSD - DIY Mark Head Shell

Just about finished this. Built a shell for my Mark III 60W, although it'll soon be housing a IIIc+/++. It's a little imperfect because it was done with hand tools and I'm a total carpentry novice, but I think it came out great. Because I knew it would always look a little rough I thought painting i...

Re: Mark IIC/C+ and III Power Section 1.5K Resistor Placemen

I might have already asked you but is this something unique to the C+ upgrades or do you have photos of stock C+ amps with it too?

Re: What I've learned about the Mark III

Hi Dan, I saw you bought a Mark IIC so guessing you sent that for the C+ mod to Mike B - how did you find it afterwards and the differences between the C and C+? You're considering selling the IIC+ and keeping your Blue Stripe?! Fair play! The Blue is one of the most aggressive amps boogie ever mad...

Re: Moddding Green stripe to triode?

So guessing the power section will revert to 75w on a Green with triode selected? Rather than 85w on pentode?

Moddding Green stripe to triode?

What will I need to do this? Will it differ at all to a stock triode in terms of sound?
