What configuration did you use with 6 diodes? I've seen the bridge type with 4...
Did you simply replace the tube with the diodes and leave the rest of the filtering, etc. intact?
And last, can you describe the difference in sound between the solid state and tube varieties? I think it may be that I'm a solid state guy too...
Thanks, it looks great
i went with the original fender twin reverb ab763 schematic. it's basically 3 and 3, two inputs one output. i removed the yellow wires from the PT to the rectifier tube and that was about it. and yes it is as simple as removing the tube and yellow wires and putting in the diodes. wjhile i used the 6 diode config, the reissue uses the 4 diode bridge type and it would work also.
soundwise there was a very obvious difference when i put it in. the tube and emulated weber copper cap both were not as punchy nor clean anywhere after 3 on the volume. not that the amp sounded like crap or anything, just more aggresive rock and roll amp with the tube rectifier then i wanted. that said it still has some clean balls/punch with the SS rectifier, just not as aggresive or dirty sounding. does that make sense?
Solid State rectifier does raise the voltages so if you were to ever want to do what i did, make sure the capacitors can handle the higher voltages. that is how it gets the clean headroom.
