    John Wood Amps

    Hi Richard , to be honest I've left it pretty much stock , I've only had it back to John once for revalving as I was getting some distortion , turns out that the distortion was an issue with my digital streaming (network issues) & the amp was fine , I had John revalve it as it was about time anyway & he replaced the originals (Electro Harmonix ??) with Shuagang & all sounds great .Signal valves I've left alone , I figure John knows what he's doing & I'll leave well alone , I'd be very interested in the results of any tube rolling you do though , who knows It might give me itchy fingers , How are you liking it so far anyway ?

    Good point Paul I suspect it's probably a bit of both I know the JW definitely improves within the first hour or so from home listening but I noticed that the W8s had a settling in period at Fred's Bake Off too

    As the owner of the other Kegworth John Wood I can safely say that whoever bags this is in for a treat glwts.

    What valves?? KT88

    Hi Lee , John serviced & revalved mine about a year and a half ago & he fitted Shuguangs to replace the originals (Electro Harmonix ??) They sound great , not noticed loads of difference from the originals but then again I've not done a direct comparison. Allegedly the NOS GEC KT88s are supposed to be the ones to use but way too Spendy for my pocket I'd certainly have to hear a big difference first before I took the plunge I'm afraid .
  10. Added the rubber arm board mounts a couple of days ago & all seems good , slightly more bass heft & body to the sound without losing any detail or clarity .I had to use 5mm spring washers on top of the allen bolts though as the bolts fouled on the bottom of the female threaded hole on the bush which meant that the armboard didn't quite nip up , easily sorted though with the spring washers 👍
