Finally got this back and into the headshell I built for it (which needs tolexing still). Sounds so good! This is just with a 57 thrown on a Framus Dragon cab but it has the grunt I was looking for. It has new filter caps and all the preamp components modded from Blue Stripe to IIc+ specs. It's the 60w combo version with the export transformer (not as big as an X101 but it looks bigger than the regular ones). I sourced metal film resistors and the relevant caps and paid a hifi/tv repair guy to solder it all in, I can't solder well enough to do it without knowing I'd damage it.

Sounds good! What preamp tubes do you have in it? I just picked up a Mark lll DRG Black Stripe with the x101 transformer.

That is a great example of what I call "The Ka-Chunk"... Sounds great man. Focused and tight...
