Ace is a faithful digital emulation of a legendary s, American, all tube, tweed, 5W amp. We have added to the model two of the most common amplifier mods: adjustment of the amount of feedback and addition of grid stopper resistors, both of which can be turned off for the original amp sound. Accurate modeling of the whole circuit to capture dynamic interactions between amp stages.
When approaching restorations or restifications, some general principles apply. All electrolytic power supply capacitors usually need to be replaced. I do analyze all can caps and in most cases replace them with new reproductions or rebuild the originals.

Welcome to the Vintage Tube Services catalog. And this only refers to the distributors of currently manufactured tubes. From what I have seen of their work they seem to be more interested in finding out the highest price a tube can sell for, rather than have any concerns as to how or if it will give YOU pleasure in your music system year after year!

Hunting down bargains on the vintage amp market is both more difficult—and yet in some ways easier—than it ever was in the pre-internet days. It's more difficult because anyone with an internet connection can spend a few minutes on eBay and get a pretty good idea of what their grandpa's old tube amp is worth, thereby making it harder to score the sweet deals that seemed so commonplace a decade ago. On the other hand, it's also much easier, because using your Google machine to research and shop around for a vintage tube amp is often far more productive than spending a weekend rooting around at the flea market.
