|Clyde||Simplified AC30 Clone|
I'm not too up on Vox clones and a client wants a 2-channel w/top-boost amp, no reverb or trem. Are
there any boutique schematics that fill the bill?
Any transformer and speaker recommendations? Thanks.
|And now, a word from our sponsors:

Sounds like a Matchless DC30
Matchless DC30: TopBoost channel with paralleld 1st tube and the right channel does have an EF86 like the very early AC30s.
You could also do this:
Just clone the AC30 but don't use the trem./vibrato-channel circuit and then connect the non-topboost-channel to the other input of the PI so you can mix both channels without phase-problems. Brian May does use the normal-channel with a booster in front of it.
MercuryMagnetics does offer at least 3 versions, the Wooden ones are the most used/wanted afaik.
OEI does offer a great output OT and companies like Heybour are also offering AC30 iron.
Celestion Alnico Blue or H30s or contact Ted Weber for his excellent suggestions.
Hope this helps,

That looks exactly like a Doug Hoffman

It is, It is a Doug Hoffman layout! Mike sells Hoffman boards and I've dealt with him before, good

Yes it is Doug's layout.I manufacture the Hoffman board kits and do give Doug credit for the layouts on my site.
Thanks for the kind words.

There is an AC-30 circuit of sorts at the Twreck page that I came up with from what I had heard on the matter (it's not my circuit design.)
I had also heard that some people like using a 1K resistor in the power supply instead of the 22K (from memory) that Vox uses.
It's all food for thought.
