Note: I added in black plastic/glue from my 180W glue gun. This was to add support for the adapter and capacitors, in order to isolate vibrations and increase the longevity of the mod. You can apply this to any circuit with SMD op-amps and SMD capacitors. I hope it helps others looking to modify their […]
Currently I can take PayPal and most major credit cards. I have (USA) shipping set to a flat rate of $3 and $11 for International. I based these off what I have found it cost to ship them. For the international price, I took the average of all my packages sent worldwide (Poland, Italy, Tokoyo, […]
Since posting new pages on here doesn’t send out a notification, instead I make a blog post to direct you to them. Don’t want anyone thinking I forgot about the review! Click here for the “InYourEar” review. Stay tuned for the SMD op-amp to DIP-8 modification for the SMSL sAp-10 amplifier (with how to video). I’ll also […]
Edit: 7/26/19 I got these molded last night (myself, at home) and must say, I was shocked at the difference (a word I rarely use on this site, except in the literal sense). I was expecting bass to improve, but it improved way more elements than that! Expect a full review in about a week, […]
An overview of how I changed my BYOC ESV 2 Knob Bender into a modular design with regard to capacitor swapping.
Dedicated Page: Here Cost of Mod: $17 Replacement Parts: 2x Bourns 500k 10% accuracy potentiometer with DPDT switch (logarithmic/audio taper) A step-by-step video showing how to change any single tone control (guitar) with a push/pull (coil-tap), into a dual volume push/pull (2x coil-taps). This allows for greater tonal flexibility, giving 8 pickup selection options vs. […]
First off, I want to give a big thanks to Kale Brown and Johnathan Pope for helping me out with this recording demo. Kale handled the guitar playing, Johnathan allowed us to record in his house (despite a sleeping baby, that somehow, we never woke up) and I handled hardware setup + recording & […]
You can find the complete C-2 page here. Capacitors Used Include: ELNA SILMIC-II/SILMIC-II ARS/ToneRex, Nichicon Muse/Muse-ES/Fine Gold/FW and a Siemens/EPCOS 1uF MKP output capacitor. Previous Mod: 16V Zener Diode Mod to allow Modern Discrete Op-Amps from Burson Audio.
The first part of my Sansui AU-517/717 restore guide, from recapping to finding those pesky shorted diodes. Not to mention how daunting it is just to remove and then rewire all the PCB’s! Here I hope to help shed some light on the subject.
As you may already know, I started the Hallman Labs Vintage Store a few months back. I am currently using EBay to sell these items and I came across a handful of rules that aren’t exactly easy to find. So, I have created a list of the most commonly encountered EBay rules. 1: You can […]
