  • Motorola HS475 tube amp into a guitar amp.

    This is my first project like this ever, so I don't know anyhting about where to begin. Anyway, I got this old tube amp off craigslist and I want to convert it into a guitar amp. I posted about this in another thread but I haven't really gotten any feedback. The amp has 6 tubes, 2 are missing, the four remaining ones light up when plugged in. There are 2 6V6's and two 12AU7's. I will try post a pic and the schematic. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Find out the total tube configuration and see if everything lights up. Do you have an input jack, auxiliary or mic? See if it's workable first.

    I just got done converting a Teeco model 612 HiFi amp into a guitar amp head. It has 2 EL84s, 2 12AX7s and a 5y3 rectifier tube, i was lucky to have all the right stuff. I was able to convert the selector switch which supplied juice to a phono, radio, aux and mic into a single 1/4 inch input jact. That was the biggest feat. From there you can move forward and create your amp; if not you'll have problems without electronic experience.

    Good Luck!

      Paul,

      I'd like to see the schematic. I have a Motorola chassis which looks identical to the picture you posted, but it is marked HS-606.

      My amp has a 6AU6 input tube, two 12AU7s, two 6V6s and one 5Y3 rectifier. It came out of a console with a 15" Jensen speaker and a record player.

      Edit, found this:

      You'll need to download the Lizard Tech plugin to view the schematic:

        I was just about to post that same link to tech preservation. It took me a little while to find that place, but it is great for info.

        Here is a link to the schematic:http://techpreservation.dyndns.org/s..._HS475_62.djvu

        After looking at the chassis and the schematic, I noticed the HS475 also has a 5Y3GT rectifier tube.
        I have acouple of pics of the chassis, nothing up close though. I'll try and post them.

            I scanned the schematic into a jpg, so I will try and post it. I can't believe I didn't think of doing that sooner.

              The amp conversion is complete!!! I ended up taking it to a local guy who does these kinds of things for fun as a side business. I was lucky I didn't shock myself through the roof. But after talking with him and learning a little more about tube electronics I am more confident for future projects.

              The guy who did the work for me is Marc Meyer, he can be reached at http://members.aol.com/fyrebottle/

              here are some pics of the finsihed amp.
