j_flanders, thanks again for the photo of the board. I decided to do a simple diagram on it of how to do the mod. I'll leave the coupling cap and bass pot I changed out of it, as I don't think it changes much in regards to the overall response of the amp.
I decided to recommend removing R8 along with the Red LEDs, as I think it muffles the amp too much.
The speaker I used is 8 Ohms, rated at 2.5 Watts. The output transformer was made to order from a brazillian transformer manufacturer (, 3k:8R/4R, with bass response starting at 120Hz (due to the space I had available).
I have a switch on the speaker output to change from the 4R to the 8R tap, but looking back at it, I could probably fit 2x switching jacks in there and a larger O.T., no problem. Specially now that I got some 3" alnico speakers off eBay, with much smaller magnets.

I just need to find another fried Honeytone! :P

Sounds like the effects board is picking up and amplifying stray RF signals.  Is the board properly grounded?

Ok man great thanks Drgonz78! 
For some reason the pics were not showing up last time I visited that post. Some of the components are different, as is the layout but it is very close. I will try to modify that schem to show the bass version and then post it here. And thanks to the person who made the jpegs. :dbtu:

I friend sent me a Roland JC-120G with only one working channel, I fixed the bad channel "just a blown fuse" I also notice
what sounds like an AM radio coming from the speakers when the EFF Board is installed in the amp.

Does any one have a schematic for the EFF board? the AMP serial number is Z9G1267.

Looks like the EFF board's number is E74366.

Good point. If it aint broke, dont fix it. I do really like it and I would hate to break it doing something unnecessary.

Bringing this topic back from the dead as I just revived the software myself on my Linux box.  It still works great!  Thanks Bancika!
Amplifier Discussion / Stramp hybrid schematics anyone?
« Last post by ilyaa on April 02, 2019, 01:01:40 PM »

recently came across a crazy old gem -

a Gun (United Sound Company) Lead 200

it looks just like this:

with some researched i figured out its a later model Stramp - apparently, after he sold Stramp to Dynacord - because mine is a solid state preamp and tube power amp (with a tube PI). 100W 4xEl34 power section

has anyone ever seen a schematic for this hybrid?? its in rough shape and id love to get it going....

I think any amp that has worked for 20 years or more has already demonstrated reliability.
