Buying / Suitcase preamp on ebay
« on: March 19, 2009, 02:37:58 PM »
I am currently bidding on the suitcase preamp that is on ebay right now and was wondering if anyone on these boards is bidding against me. I really just want the knobs and plan to rebuild and re-sell the preamp after I win. I was just wondering if the person bidding against me is on here so we can try to work something out rather than bid the price on this thing much higher.

I have 2 suitcase rhodes with peterson amplifiers. One of the peterson amplifiers works great. The other peterson amplifier does not work and both power amps are toast. I was originally going to just rebuild the dead power amps, but have been thinking about doing something different. The power supply does work so I was thinking that I could use the power supply to power the preamp, and install a different stereo amp within the cabinet. I was wondering if anyone has done anything like this before and has information on good power amps to use. It would be cool to try it with tube amplifiers, but I am open to any suggestions. I do have quite a bit of electronics experience and would even be open to the idea of building my own amps if someone has a good schematic.

I have been thinking about trying to install effects loop after the 4 pin preamp on my Fender Rhodes as I would like to be able to use stereo effects through the Peterson preamp. I was wondering if anyone has done this before and has any suggestions on how to go about it, or knows of any problems I may encounter. I was thinking that to avoid any modification to the piano I could install everything in a project box and have the 4 pin cable from the preamp go into the box, and then another 4 pin cable would go from the box to the amp.
