M77 Clone


#1

hi - I read some of the threads here and decided to buy the nobsound m77 board and a m77 chassis to try it out. I have some soldering skills and basic electronics knowledge but I have never put a valve amp together - more than likely would electrocute myself to death! is it possible for someone to give me some details of how to do this ? (i.e. where to source the transformer, selector switches, potentiometer etc and how to make sure that I earth the thing properly); pictures and instructions would be gratefully received.

I thought I would connect everything up myself and get a proper electrician to look over it after and make sure it’s safe to use. Does anyone know of a trusted electrician I can turn to in Hampshire or surrey?

Thank you very much

Not Hampshire or Surrey, but if I wanted something tubey looking at that was down south then it would be @Valvebloke http://www.ampregen.com/ampregencontact.html

There is a group of us construction types who meet up at the Hi-Fi hangar in Bordon once a month for a project night. Several of us have built the Nobsound preamps and would be able to offer advice. You’d be most welcome to come along. I think I’m right in saying the next one is this coming Wednesday although I’ll double check.

Thank you very much Rob and KJW. I bought stuff from Steve at hangar before and he’s a very nice person. Yes do let me know the schedule for the meetings.

It’s the 3rd Wednesday of the month, as a rule, from 6:30 to about 9:30 PM. :+1:

I’ll be there this week AFAIK.

Steve is unwell at the moment so best check with the shop that it’s happening.


#7

Good point. I’d heard he’d been under the weather. Will drop them a line tomorrow and report back.

Steve is back to work, he was in the shop on Friday and Saturday. All back to normal.

That’s good to hear.
