will be doing business on a limited, case by case basis for now.
Here are some schematics
of some of my favorite and not so favorite amps! Also, some guitars!
I'm going to be getting more up soon.
Sorry about the file sizes, but I made them as small as they could be but
still be legible. What's the point of a schematic if you can't read it?
The best way to print these is to right click on them and save them to
your disk. Then open them up in a paint program and print it that way.
The program should put it all on one page. The regular paint function in
Windows 95/98 won't open these though. You can download free paint programs
from various places on the net if you need one.
that you have a schematic and layout for your amp, don't believe that it
makes you qualified to go in and work on it. There is still a risk that
you can kill yourself at MANY different points in the amp. Stay out of
it if you don't know how to drain filter caps and generally keep yourself
out of trouble.
Download the entire list of schematics:
(AA763) (notes on the AA763 vs. AB763)
Reverb, layout. (AB763)
Reverb, layout. (AA1164)
Silverface late '60's Twin
Silverface early to mid '70's Twin
Reverb. (also Quad, Super Six, Dual Showman, and Vibrosonic Reverbs)
Silverface late '70's Twin
Reverb 135w. (ultralinear model, also Quad, Super Six, Dual Showman
and Vibrosonic Reverbs)
Fender Reverb Units
Vintage (circa '61 to '66) Reverb
preamp, 50 watt
power amp, 100
watt power amp.
Lead, notes. (metal panel)
Here is the
metal panel Marshall Super Bass.
As far as I know, this is very similar to the Plexi circuit. Notice how
similar it looks to a tweed Bassman? Marshalls are nothing but hotrodded
Bassmans anyway... (notes on the Super Bass)
Check out this Supro
Thunderbolt with solid state rectifier. This was drawn by Jerry of
Frederic, a super good guy for giving it away! Thanks my man! The resolution
is not too good, so I might redraw it by looking at my buddy's Thunderbolt.
I'd ask Frederic to see if he could get another better copy, but jeez,
I don't want to ask for too much! I'll go ahead and draw it when I get
time and when I get over to my friend's house, which happens to be all
the way across town... I know for a fact that these amps use something
like a 200 ohm cathode resistor instead of the 700 that is listed here.
I only saw this on one amp though.
1472. A small 2 6V6 amp that happens to sound pretty good.
I will be getting more schematics
of guitars and amps up as soon as I can.
