Thanks Space!

 

Good to hear from you man. And good to hear the SVpre and MK1 are still going strong.

I'd make sure this new board will fit in MK2s as well :)

Meris -

 

I was talking to Spaceatl about the SVPre mod and how it made such a difference for the SV amps and was wondering if such a mod would be a good idea for the DT amps.  He seemed to think that the input boards are much better in the DT's so maybe not needed but the gain voicings and the 12AX7 as buffer before conversion might add some more awesomeness to our DT's.

 

If you ever think about doing one I would be in for it and I bet a lot of other DT owners would be too.  I have a feeling there are a lot more DT's out there than SV's but I could be wrong.  Anyone else have any thoughts on this?

If I were to venture a guess i'd say it's very possible. Although I've never seen the input section of a DT series amp as of yet.

At the end of February, I contacted Meris by email, and discussed bringing my amp to them when it was ready (since I live close to their facility). At that time the response was '...The new SVpre should be ready within a couple of months at most.'

I'm still waiting for an update.

Anybody heard anything?

 

Hey Guys,

 

As you might know, Line6 has discontinued the spider valve line since this thread was started. As such we've had to re-evaluate the product direction. Rest assured it's still in progress but will take a little longer that we had originally hoped. Thanks for your patience! Please feel free to email us: meris.us/contact

Just curious, what are the benefits of this mod - like does it correct any of the master volume issues or popping when switching channels?

don't stop developing the new SVPre, pleeeeze!

I hope you'll even provide a full DIY installation procedure, when ready and on -sale.

keep us up-to-date with the project course.

I had my brother snag up a svmki for me 2 days ago. Paid $50 because the seller said it powered up but had no sound. Speaker was unplugged. Lol Any how, I'm very interested in this mod from Meris!!! Hope it happens soon!

P.S. any idea how much they will cost? Just an estimate so I know about how much much longer I'm gonna be on Maggie's farm? ;)

Hollatchaboy72 ...

 

I think your post on 01 Jun 16 might be right on the money? It is SUCH a small market I doubt there is much if any incentive for Meris to pursue this? Supposition on my part I grant you, but it just "feels" dead? I did get an email from Terry (aka Meris) on inquiry back in March 2015 but ... that was 18 months ago and nada has happened so as they say in business, be careful about buying stocks.

Old thread, I realize, but in case anyone is still interested...

 

There's really not that much variation in how you'd design a pre-amp stage with a single 12AX7.  If anybody is interested, comment back and I'll post a schematic.  I can't say exactly what values the original SVPre switched in and out with his different color coded configuration switches, but I can guess what circuit elements he was playing with.  You could build one and swap parts til you get the sound you like, or put switches in with a range of possible values.

Sure, I would be interested in whatever schematic you can come up with. I just got an old SV112 Mk1 and am ready to play around with it.

If anyone is still around that has any info on the mod I would be interested I have the hd100 head that is collecting dust, would love a mod that makes it sound decent! Or the schematic to construct one.
