    which is based on the SLO with a couple mods I believe. MIDI switchable too.
    Oh, that looks amazing!
    Yeah, great price too. Not much in the way of clips around so I take no responsibility if you buy one and it's actually a pile of dog shit

    https://www.antekinc.com/as-05t280-5...v-transformer/

    Which I believe should be good, has close to the same values.
    Oh, and they have a high gain one, too?

    From poking around their forums I believe the "high gain" was the older model, then they developed the Anvil.

    I just looked at the link and that's the Anvil again

    Shoot me a PM with your email address and ill send you everything I have.

    Full wiring layout (with a few errors with the PT/power switch wiring) Full schematics with notes for adjustments depending on power valve types & also a Bill of materials that you can just drop into mouser.

    Are you planning on using PCB or turrets boards? The BOM is for the official sloclone pcbs and everything was chosen to be a perfect fit and the highest spec for those exact boards but 90% translates to most other boards too it's just a few caps in the power amp PCB that will need changing.
    Please visit and share my guitar gear & DIY Blog

    Also if you want a link slapping on there shoot me a PM

    The High gain one is closer to the SLO the high gain has a few changes done specifically for Lasse Lamert I believe and is a touch more modern sounding.

    The only downside of doing just the pre (i've done it) is you lose a lot of what makes the SLO great as a big part of the sound is from the HIFI output transformers and high amount of filtering.

    Going back to Chris the best PCB option i've found are the C3amps ones theyre massive durable things a few mm thick with 2oz traces so if you get a bit carried away soldering you are much less likely to burn the trace off the board. His chassis are also great but the newer ones have been redesigned slightly to already have the transformer holes mostly drilled for the O'netics ones which are utterly fantastic but not worth double what you would pay from say Inmadout who makes an exact replica of the Deyoung OT and the PT is the same other than a higher spec filament winding so you can bang KT88s in it. With the O'netics unless you get a custom PT you are limited to 6L6 & El34 as the winding can't handle the current of anything bigger.

    I'm super impressed with Rob Robinette's site (despite the spelling error in the URL):
    https://robrobinette.com/How_the_Sal...-100_Works.htm

    He's got a super thorough breakdown of the original amp and then some suggested builds with various mods you can try out if you want to (including BOM).
