I'm in dire need of assistance.
My ashdown mag300 is starting to crap out on me after 8 years of service and i'm looking to replace it.
Definately going the tube route and i had set my mind on the Ashdown CTM100. 1140 EURO
That was until this popped up: a DIY tube amp, running on EL34's and dynacord transformers. It has bass and treble EQ and a bass and treble boost switch.
I added the extra pictures here, so that i can put more then 2. (gutshots included) http://adayearlyandadollarextra.blog...-tube-amp.html
With this amp comes a homemade 15" that the seller will add for 55EURO. The amp itself is well under 200 EURO aswell. It will need retubing and i'll probably drop it off at a tech for a full setup, eventhough it has been serviced by a certain Dr Tube, who replaced some components and advised the seller to retube it. So if i were to buy this, i would rehouse it, retube, and maybe mod later on.
SO, basically, should i save more, and longer for the ctm 100 or give this baby a shot? It's a 3h drive to pick it up or test it.
Help me brethren of the bass.
