mods to ampex 600?
« on: March 17, 2018, 10:42:18 PM »
I picked up an ampex 600 pre (no tape deck) in hopes of using it as an insert for some "pleasantly" crunchy surf/garage rock vocals. I've seen there are a number of mods out there for this pre to lower the noise and sweeten the tone for when you do crunch it up, a fellow member used to provide this service:


I don't think I need anything major, it's been recently serviced so it's functioning well (except the meter apparently), anyone who would be willing to tackle some of these for a reasonable price? Mostly to balance the output, and add an output transformer, maybe remove some of the tape deck circuit  and whatever helps with hum.

It would help if you updated your profile to include your location.  :-*
