For sale is a wonderful Korneff 45SE clone made by Oliver J
W Sayes (aka sonic_oli) in New York. The
tube configuration is 5U4G, 6SN7, 45. It
uses the design that Jeff Korneff made so well-known and appreciated. This particular amp is upgraded with Hashimoto
H-507S output transformers, Jupiter copper foil wax
& paper capacitors, ClarityCap’s 250Vdc ESA series Film Capacitors and vintage
Elna Cerafine 47 + 47 uF - 500V electrolytic capacitors. 1.8 watts per channel of mighty Single Ended Triode power.
I love 45 amps and I have owned a bunch of 45 amps in the past from Korneff,
Yamamoto, Burgess, Hogan, Moth and several others. There are sonic differences
amongst them but not really huge differences, and I can say with all
honesty that this amp belongs in that group.
The build quality and the sound are just excellent. This amp competes well against amps costing
several time its cost.
I will include a two complete sets of tubes.
45 – Pair of GE Canada 45’s, pair of Wizard 45’s
6SN7 - Pair of Ken-rad Black Glass 6SN7GT/VT-231, pair of
Sylvania 6SN7GTB chome tops
5U4G – Sylvania VT-244/5U4G, Sylvania 5U4GB (marked Zenith)
I would also sell the buyer a set of my best tubes for this
amp to the buyer (Emission Labs solid plate 45, Tungsol 6SN7GT round plates,
Tungsol 5U4G top getter).
I will soon be selling a great 76/37 preamp also made by
sonic_oli. This is a fabulous preamp
with a separate power supply using a 5y3 rectifier and the main unit using 6SN7
and either 76 or 37 tubes, which can be swapped without any adjustments. It has
4 inputs and 2 outputs. The volume
control is a TKD 2CP-2508 Series,
Stereo, Volume Potentiometer. Upgraded
capacitors are Jupiter copper foil wax &
paper capacitors. The ability to select
different tubes in this unit give it an unusual ability for you to tune it for
your taste and system. I will offer this
preamp to the successful buyer of the amp, as they are truly made for each
other. If they decide not to purchase
it, I will put it up for sale.
I am not selling these beautiful sounding
pieces to buy something else. I am
forced by age and physical condition to sell all my cool audio stuff. This great gear needs to be passed along to
those who can use and appreciate it.
