SKU : K5528

Our Price: $665.00


  • Description
  • Reviews

The Currawong amplifier is a tried and tested valve amplifier circuit which has been adapted to components which are readily available in 2014. Each channel uses two 12AX7 twin triodes for the preamp and phase splitter stages and two 6L6 beam power tetrodes in the class-AB ultra-linear output stage. It performs very well, with low distortion and noise.

Supplied with:
This kit includes all valves, PCB, componentry, acrylic board cover, transformers & panels.

It does not include parts to build the enclosure, as a majority of customers indicated that they wanted to customise their enclosure to suit their own style, we suggest building your own to suit your Currawong kit.
