Such a great thread, very much appreciated. Inspired me to start doing some soldering as well. Thanks Crazynuts!!

BTW, what circuit do you use for clean sounds, any specific mods there? Would it be possible to build a true fender AB763 preamp circuit using the mts layout?

Awesome, you are welcome.

I have only one clean MTS module, and its the "clean" module. So far I have not spent much time on it. I have however replaced all the film caps with orange drop 716p caps. That made a nice improvement. At some point I will sketch out the schematic so I can know what I'm working with.

As far as AB763 preamp, yes most likely (minus reverb and such), I suspect the Deluxe module is pretty much this.

I'm trying to find the time to do some modding and let there be yet another Dirty Sanchez monster! Which donors would be most suitable to start out from?

This pic is from Anthony's site www.salvationaudio.com and it does almost imply that most of the gainier modules are built based on the same architecture.



If there is a common module architecture for randall modules (with the exception of grail, treadplate, recto/rectified, xtc, blackface/deluxe/kh1) could you, if you find the time that is, point out which components to go where?

I could also of course take a pic of a donor..

Cheers

you can use any of those except the last four columns.
SL+ being the best choice.

Great work there Mr. nutz!!

Can't afford to send anything to Salvation or Jaded right now, I think I am going to play with a plexi module I have laying around and put the Metroamp/Friedman specs for Ed's amp in it and see what we get, I modded a old marshall a friend had with those specs and I really like that amp, chewy with a lot of spank on the top end.

Great to see MTS living on.

Wondering how this went for everyone. I love mine but have set it aside lately for something with more bass response. The mids on this DS is great but needed that beef Marshall sound.

I wonder if anyone made any tweaks to the DS to get more bass, or anything else for that matter.

replace c3 with a 0.0047uf (or just tack another 0.0022uf to the existing one)
see if that gets you where you want to be.

I'll revisit my DS soon, have several projects going at once right now.

hey CrazyNuts. I am finally getting round to doing this and the HBE mods.

Could you please re-up the photos if you can? they don't seem to be displaying anymore.

Thanks!

Thanks! I'll do the C45 switch as well, but I can handle that with the info already posted.

The C45/HBE combo is one of the greatest modded Marshall things ever put out...

I had a Dual Egnater modded by Dave one time with that combo on Ch A/B.....one of those modules I should never have given up.

Here is my V3 with the gain pot relocated to the correct location. This is how the actual BE100 is wired.

Yes, this worked great, thanks. warmth and beef is present but still defined and can be dialed out to more mid hump. much better
