For the past few months I have been working with Holger (Tube Nirvana) on some custom panels that I will use in rebuilding my MK IIIs in the Tube Nirvana style. Holger gave me his blessing to talk about the project here. I am making my own custom wood chassis out of four quarter black walnut. Holger and I designed front, back, top and bottom aluminum panels drilled, cut, anodized and silkscreened in the Tube Nirvana style but modified for a roomier, balanced mirror image (right and left amp) look. The panels are done in that bronze look Holger uses. I already bought all new driver boards, I have the SDS power supply mod in my amps, new tubes, tube sockets, bias points, vu meters, all new wire, speaker post, inputs,everything.
So now I am dismantling my old Mk IIIs, I will remove the transformer covers, fill in scratches, sand down super fine and paint. I like the blue Edcor transformers Holger uses on all his amps, I saw a thread where somebody used a US Navy grey that looked good and another where the guy painted them a kind of cream color. Of course most amps go basic black, any other ideas?
