V2 new PCB

Hi again! I've got a a friend that was supposed to help me build an early version V2 from scratch with a turretboard. In the last 5 months we have installed one transformer and two pots.. So i am starting to see that this won't happen and i dont have the skill it takes to build it from scratch myself.

So plan B is to make a nearly exact copy of the original 73 V2 i already have. To do this i find my self in need of the big PCB, the small PCB and the EQ board.

I have seen that Orville Amp Technology makes the small PCB with some modifications, wich is think is a great thing to offer! So that one is covered.

What remains is the big PCB and the EQ Board.. I'm guessing that this is a rather unusual request, but would anybody who knows how be willing to make them for a price? Pre assembled or unassembled. Doesn't matter. Price doesn't really matter either as i have already spent quite a lot of money on parts for this project.

Orville Amp Tech is working on having the Main Board available (not a kit) possibly before Summer 2013. Once we get those out, the control board is next, but will be modified to also accept discrete inductors which are much cheaper and easier to find than the toroidal. - Steelyman

Re: V2 new PCB

We're looking into providing the option of a bag of components for the Main Brd. Some like to shop for components themselves, but it's easier and quicker for some folks to have the shopping done for them. It wouldn't be a kit exactly, but you'd get a Parts List with all the Reference Designations on it so you know where everything goes. We may do the same thing with the Control Pot Brd if we decide to do a re-pop of it...with a few mods of course. Even I know that it never fails, so it would have to provide options not available on the original. I wonder if anyone would be interested in all 3 pcb's to build their own custom amp. hmmm.
