Rack Handles = Mouser Electronics

Pretty pricey though, like all their stuff. You might find an electronics salvage place. Lots of computer servers and telco equipment have rack handles.

Roberts 720X Preamp Mods

I am doing mods on the Roberts 720X and want to put in an "on-off-on" switch that allows power only to the preamps at one "on" position and power to both preamps and power amp in the other "on" position.

Roberts/AKAI Preamps New Mod/Layout (pic)

I am developing my own take on the Roberts/AKAI Preamps. This would be a combination of Rod C's original mod and his Boris mod. This is the faceplate design: http://i131.photobucket.com/albums/p290/fmhurst/PREAMPFACEPLATESNOBACKGROUNDTESTver.jpg I plan to use the mic input trannies from a Shure M68 ...

AKAI/Roberts 6BQ5 Power Mod Question

First, since I've only been a member of the board for a couple weeks, let me tell you a little about my interests. I've done mod work on old Fender '70s tube amps (sliver face to black face sorts of mods). I also repair stereo and mono tube amps. My son is a left-handed guitar player, so I've modded...
