DIY / Re: Closest SUNN Model T clone ever?
« Last post by _peter on June 29, 2017, 02:46:20 am »
Thanks, hosebeast!

The grill is custom made by a local metalworking company. I asked them whether they have 2x20mm punches and they did. So I ordered a perforated metal plate with the proper shape and cutouts. (Actually I asked a self-employed friend to order it for me as they wouldn't sell to privat persons.)

Perforated metal plate manufacturers need the following data:
- width, height and thickness of the grill
- width and height of the holes (w1, w2)
- vertical and horizontal distance between the center of the holes
- non-punched space at the borders

Afterwards I let it powder coat by another local company.

Cheers,
Peter

Wow dude, this looks like something special to me for sure! Did you churn this one out?

What about that grill? I am praying to any and all gods that you made it yourself and are willing to help me obtain one  :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D

Either way it is definitely something I would enthusiastically rock.

DIY / Closest SUNN Model T clone ever?
« Last post by _peter on June 28, 2017, 04:02:34 am »
Hi folks,

what do you think about this one? First generation Model T with SUNN style tolex and corners, punched and powder coated front grid, brushed and printed aluminium faceplate. Original Carling switches.

Power transformer is custom made. Hammond OT. Bias measuring points for each tube - no need to pull out the chassis when changing tubes. Has footswitchable active fx loop, post phase inverter master volumen at the back and an additional input for more gain (enables something similar to the Plexi "one wire mod"). The never used "Out" jacks had to go to make room for the footswitch jack and the input for more gain.

Tubes are JJ 6550 and TT ECC83. It's a little bit darker sounding than the original but just a tad of a difference (like a tube change can bring up). Has a very nice growl.

Cheers,
Peter

You can also find many schematics at the Hoffman forum site.

There is no one location for schematics.

For a 76 Concert Lead try this thread: http://sunnforum.ampage.org/index.php/topic,7047.0.html

Q & A / Re: Bright cap on Model T / why no Model T clone threads?
« Last post by _peter on May 16, 2017, 04:59:29 am »
The other questions is:

There are a few Model T clones out there but I never read any post of someone who actually owns one.
Searching this forum for "Reval" didn't show any results and if you search for "Jessup" you get asked
whether you really wanted to search for "Jesus" instead.  :evil:

Is there anyone who got his hands on one of those and could compare them to an original Model T?
Or are those clones kind of untrue/uncool around SUNN enthusiasts here?

Cheers,
Peter

Q & A / Bright cap on Model T / why no Model T clone threads?
« Last post by _peter on May 16, 2017, 04:43:25 am »
Hi,

a friend of mine has a first generation Model T with one tremendous and several minor modifications.

Sometime around the eighties someone installed an additional small transformer and a 12V power supply.
Looks like West German parts as far as I can tell. The worst thing is, he added switches and LEDs to the faceplate.

Regarding the minor mods, I was able to change those back to stock. Only thing I am not sure about is a bright cap
on the "Brite" chanel's volume. According to the schematic there shouldn't be one. But it looks pretty much original.
Many manufacturers in the old days changed the circuit of their amps without updating the schematics.

So is it possible that there are Model Ts with a bright cap? Have you seen this? Does yours have one?

Cheers,
Peter

I don't, I opted for the new look. I've done a 2000S head, those two cabs and a 200S head and cab in 7005. The tolex on all of them scrubbed up mostly "new" looking, no ciggy burns, tears or obvious wear, so they came out sorta NOS looking.
