    Looks like Schematic Heaven (the webphix site) is going away (again), I was just on there and they had a message that end of March will be it.

    Another good schematic site is here: http://bmamps.com/Tech_sch.html

    I believe most, if not all of them are available from the other two sites.

    Hi.

    I actually didn't even know they were back up again, again, again ;).

    SchematicHeaven was my go-to site back in the day, but the constant being on and off drove me to look at the other options.

    An end of an era (once again) if the site is really gone for good this time.

    Regards
    Sam

    I'm downloading a mirror of schematic heaven now. Let me see how big it is once it's all pulled down.

    Got it. A tarball with everything runs 633MB. If you want a personal copy, let me know and we can figure out the logistics.

    I downloaded the entire web site, 676 Meg. Not that much bigger than the tar file.

    I have an oddball Sears Silvertone XL40 guitar amp, model # 1422. I've searched forever to find a schematic, but no luck. The 1421 and 1423 are readily available. If anyone comes across one, please give me a heads up. I think it might be a Dano amp in disguise but not sure. Sears sold it around 1969.

    I wish I could find the SWR SS-180 schematic. Great site. Pulled all my amp schematics from it.. Except the one I am really looking for

    It's pretty unbelievable that it lasted 'til now. Schematic heaven has been on-again-off-again for more years now than it was on and maintained in the first place. A really great collection of schematics and, as T-Bird said, was my go-to source for a long time.

    Most, if not all of it has been loaded onto other sites, but I'm glad to hear you guys made copies of it. It would be a terrible resource to lose forever.

    I see that there were four models starting in 69 with the 57A14221C, there was also the 57C1422L, 57K1422L, and
    finally a solid state model. As you said, it is rare but specifically which model do you have?

    Having a thread specifically to help locate schematics is a great idea.

    According to Silvertone World, it started out as 57G01422l, and subsequently went to 57C1422L, and 57K1422L. There was also a solid state version. Mine is tubes. Anyways, don't want to hijack the thread, just thought I'd throw it out there in case anyone might know of a schematic.

    Oh, I just sent about 30 schematics that Doug did not have on the EL84 site. He is getting a new server and should have it up next week with all the new additions. I am super glad beans posted that link. It has a ton of schematics and now at least 30 more. I sent him everything from my SWR collection to my GK, Trace Elliot and Little Mark stuff.

    Still looking for Schaller KV18 schematics. A tube amp from the '60's.

    Bill, what do you think of changing the title of the thread to something like "Schematic Libraries and Wanted List". It can contain a list of web sites as well as requests for schematics.

    I believe that Schaller made the Hofner KV amps. Searching for Hofner KV-18 might lead to something.
