Just joined yesterday.
My name is Jon and I live just North of Charlotte NC.
I am presently working on a Laney GC30V tube amp, and 2 SS amps a Kustom bass amp and a Fender ultimate chorus .
These are my first amp repair projects other than just swapping out input jacks and tubes.
I was Military trained in electronics and am a CNC field tech by trade.
Looking forward to learning from you all and possibly helping out with what little knowledge I may have.

Hello,

My name is Mike and I live in Memphis, TN. I discovered the wonderful hobby of restoring vintage audio equipment just over a year ago, with the extra time on my hands because of the pandemic. I don't have an electronics background, but thanks to the incredible resources out there (including videos from Mark @ Blueglow), I have learned a great deal. I have built up a functional bench and have successfully brought about ten late 70's / early 80's receivers/amps back from the dead and recapped/cleaned/restored another ten already-working ones. All solid-state so far... maybe I'll tackle tubes at some point.

My latest rabbit-trail is exploring the Digilent Analog Discovery 2 and seeing if/how it can help expand my ability to test my gear. Happy to compare notes with anyone who is interested in this device.

Cheers, all!
-Mike

Hi,

My name is Eric and I am an aspirining hifi tube amp builder. I currently know very little, save what Mark has shown
on his youtube channel. I was a mechanical engineer in my past life and I am currently on hiatus from school as I
went back to get a degree in EE. My wife and I also own an electronics repair and semiconductor characterisation
company, and for the last 5 years, I have mostly worked on refurbishing scopes and resaling them to universities.
I also repair a lot of vintage hifi SS gear. This was to pay for school but I have become entangled in the tube amp net!

We also design custom precision linear power supplies for a few clients here in Texas (Houston) and I am a bit of
"Volt-Nut". I recently aquired a TV-7B/U and I am using Mark tutorial on calibrating and restoration to get it up
to speed. I'm almost done but I'm a bit OCD so I keep replace the old carbon resistors with NOS Dale RS (I have tons)
series in hopes to improve the tolerance since those have a TC 25ppm/deg.C... and I'm testing all of them with
4 wire testing on my HP 3457A. I know it's overkill but I want my first "Real" tube tester to be a really nice unit.

Anyways, I have no shortage of words so let me zip it. I look forward to learning from everyone here and contributing
where I can :mrgreen: .
