Blowtorch preamp schematics
« on: May 26, 2010, 11:36:17 AM »
Sorry, bub, you won't find any, here.

You won't find any, anywhere.

"Then why do you insist on tormenting us like this? Leading to believe that you actually have them?"

Just to prove a point.

"And just exactly what point is that? And why is it so damn important?"

It isn't really that important. I am just persistent. And trying to overcome someone who is stubborn.

Anyway...............the point being that sticking "Blowtorch preamp schematics", on any thread, will suck in DIYers, via Google.

Even when it has absolutely nothing to do with the famed preamp.

Thanks for reading this, and proving my point!

I found one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Haven't tried it yet. A few things on my bench have to be cleared off, before I can try.

That is so good, I don't know where to start.

Works only moderately well as computer screen wallpaper, though.  The Outlook icon always seems to get stuck in the Holy Water.

The LOOK OUT! icon is not good enough to be in the Holy Water.

That was probably the problem.

I wasn't able to download it until I logged in.  Allowing guests to be able to download attachments requires a config change in the forum software I think.  Or are you trying to prevent guests from downloading the Blowtorch preamp schematics and just limit access to members?

I think this is how all the forums work nowadays.  diyaudio, diyhifi, audiocircle, even the diy-whatever-engineering one.

Not sure I want the usual suspects from The Pub, Greaser's Palace, or whatever riff-raff Google drags here, or just about anyone trolling for design help, to bug us.

It might backfire. I could get more registration requests. We shall have to see how things progress.

Too late. I've already hacked this forum s/w and downloaded the very interesting Blowtorch schematic on my HD in case I'll be banned from this place. :o

I've the schematics of all the revisions of the CTC Blowtorch preamp on my PC. I've send them to the administrator so he can put them in the download section.

However... I don't understand the huge interest in these circuits, the transistors are unobtainable, how can a diy'er find them?

If one wants an approximate clone, he can buy something in Sweden!

Who did you send them to, and when? If you mean "Jocko", I can assure you I do not have them. Unless you did it years ago.

You know I can not remember anything.

Quote from: john curl
It would appear that it will be virtually impossible for anyone but Erno Borbely or me to build an accurate Vendetta preamp.

WOW, then Erno Borbely should be able to build accurate Blowtorch preamplifier too?   :o
We should contact him and organize biggest GROUP BUY in history for BLOWTORCH pcb's  ;)
Never argue with a fool,
they will drag you down to their level,
then beat you with their experience!!!

I don't know him, so "we" are putting you in charge of that.

Well, I have to apologize. Yes, it seems Mr. Jam did send me the schematics, a while back, on a CD-ROM. But, I have misplaced it. Which is bad news, because in that stack of CD-ROMs was some service manuals, for some of our broken lab gear. No idea where any of it is now.
