        I've already built a Gilmore Jr...I have no fears/doubts...although I am wondering about the "M" mod...

          Hello BigWood,

          Thanks for being my Customer and thanks for your inquiry.

          The 'M' mod adjust the gain of the amp. Here are the changes/values;

          M Mod

          C1 = .68uf (any voltage above 20) save the original C1 cap.

          C5 = .002uf (400v or higher)

          R6 = 100K

          R10 = 470K

          If your taste requires more crunch/overdrive, change the following;

          C4 = .002uf (400v or higher)

          Add = .68uf (20v or higher) across R8 (make them parallel)

          Twiddle some more?
          Leave in all of the above but change C1 back to the original value of 22uf/25v.

          My personal favorite is the 'V' mod. It modifies the tone stack to mimic an old Vox AC4. With the 'V' mod, you will loose just a tad of overall volume due to insertion loss (normal). Here are those changes/values;

          V Mod

          --Add between V1 pin 6 (plate, turret #10) and the top lug (see below) on the tone pot either a .002uf Mallory 150 or a .002uf Orange Drop cap (closer to V1) followed by 470K resistor

          --Change C2 to silver mica 47pf/500V

          --Remove R5 (100K) and add a jumper where it was

          --Change C4 to silver mica 220pf

          --Add 330K resistor between top lug on the Volume pot and the bottom lug on Tone pot. I have the pots in the amp so that the lugs point to the right when looking from the inside, so there is a top, mid, and bottom

          I like running the two Watt mod in my 'V' mod Gilmore Jr. It provides additional clean headroom.

          We are soon releasing a mod that turns the Gilmore Jr into a tube overdrive to push a bigger wattage amp. It provides preamp/output tube and transformer saturation. It will be released in a sort of stomp box format thus keeping the build preserved for times when you use it for a stand-alone amp.
          Best regards,

                It's a very cool little kit.

                Now again, who's interested in coming in for some studio time with these puppies?

                  I'll volunteer some reviews, that's the best I can do---

                    That sounds very interesting Rich. Please keep us posted.

                    • Phil,

                      I will be sending a unit for you and the guys to beat-up once I build one in a suitable box. I don't want Danocoustic to get too carried away once I send him tickets for a one-way Wooley Llama ride to your studio. (Dano, if I could afford it, I'd send you First Class ;^)

                      I've got the current build in a less than sat enclosure for pre release testing purposes. It's now ready. Gary Gerhart designed the circuit. I am heavily twisting the eccentric modest arm of the reclusive tone wizard to sign the first five units (for a special personal intention), so please give me approx ~ two weeks to deliver.

                      There is also another box in development that allows the Ardmore Kit to be used in the same way.

                      Wait till you see what’s next

                      Your tone is our command.
                      Best regards,

                        I'll have to have one of those, too, I guess...*sigh*...

                            I met a man from Mars
                            He picked up all my guitars
                            And played travelling songs

                            When we got on ship
                            He brought out something for the trip
                            Said, "It's old but it's good"
                            Just like any other primitive would.....
