I have a good set of original Dynaco SCA-35 iron, and I would like to make something out of it. I did do the "Clone" of the 35, and I find it unsatisfying as the output appears to be quite low as compared to the original 35. Lest you think there is something wrong with the transformers, the donor had been moused, flooded and more such that not much more than than transformers could be salvaged - and those with effort. I also feel brave enough to take on more than just following a recipe and assembling stuff-made-by-others.
I would like to keep this as simple as possible, of course.
I have reasonable tooling, I own a small lathe and mill (Unimat), and I have a LOT of experience soldering, troubleshooting and building kits.
I am wide open to suggestions. Amp only. I am in possession of multiple pre-amps, so no need for an integrated amp.
I also have a set of Fisher 500 iron - and would like to do something with this as well. I am told that Fisher use voltage doublers to make B+, so this may be a bit more problematic. Suggestions?
On the Fisher Iron, I purchased these at the Kutztown Radio Show for $3 at the Buy-it-Now table. They check out and I have ohmed them and checked them - all good. They have been sitting on my junk-shelf for 6 years now - time to do something! But, an illustration of the many opportunities available at the largest vintage radio show in the US by a considerable margin - happening September 16/17 - less than a month from now. Look up DVHRC Kutztown in your browser for details.
One last note: I have a plethora of 7199 tubes - pure blind luck, but I found a brown paper bag of tubes at a flea-market, which contained a bunch of NIB RCA-branded 7199s. So, I have no worries along those lines.
Thanks in advance!!
