MicandMod 1176 Kit - any experiences ?
« on: June 02, 2015, 03:59:26 PM »
Hi
I am in the UK and have been looking for 1176 kits ( rev D and Rev A ) to build up for my small studio.

Import tax duties on US kits make them much less attractive in the UK so I have been looking at the micandmod kits from France.
I am just about to pull the trigger but wanted to see if there are any existing customers on groupdiy.

Does anyone have any experience of these kits and any feedback on them ?  They look just like the Hairball kits.

Many thanks
Pete

I've got one here unstarted, bought off eBay but not Mic&Mod. It's nicely packaged & put together as a kit

I looked at buying Hairball kits as well but the final cost when imported is similar to a Warm Audio 1176 so it makes no sense

I suspect the cheapest way to build an 1176-alike would be to use one of Gustav's Phat Fet or Symettrical Fet kits and source the parts from Farnell & etc

If you want a visual clone then you'll have to budget for a front panel, meter, two switch banks & etc. With UK prices they won't end up being cheap

I'd be interested to see which way you jump as I want to build a couple of 1176 clones

Well ,   parcel arrived today only a few days after ordering online.

I have to say the 1176 kit turned up very well packed and presented......Mnats Red D Board with French Vintage Microphones TXs.
So far looks very good indeed for the price if you are in the EU.

Haven't checked through all components yet but looks like good quality stuff !

Fast service - I am impressed so far.

Pete
