Description

Our amp module rebuild kit includes the parts to rebuild and repair most issues with a blown or old and crusty power amp module.  

If your germanium transistors are shorted or on the fritz, we are sad to say that they are no longer manufactured so we cannot include them in the kit or even offer them at all. Fortunately, we have devised a method of converting the amp modules to utilize silicon output transistors.

The sound produced by the silicon transistors is very much the same as the original germaniums and as an added bonus, they are much more stable, less temperature sensitive, less prone to leakage and are capable of handling higher current before failure. 

The Silicon Conversion option includes a pair of matched output transistors, corresponding bias resistors and thermal isolation pads for easy installation without messy heatsink paste!  

Notes:
• Replacement Transistor Pinouts May Not Match Original. See Instructions Tab for Schematic and Transistor Pinouts

Awesome Rhodes power amp rebuild kits!!

These Vintage Vibe Peterson power amp rebuild kits are fantastic!! Thanks VV for making these available to us musicians. The kits are complete with all the parts necessary to completely rebuild the power amps, and what's even better, are the new silicon power transistors to upgrade from the old germanium transistors. I was hesitant to lose my Ge transistors and replace them with Si transistors, but the tone was completely unaffected, and the clean high power is much better now than before and there is less hum. The instructions and schematics provided are easy to follow, and the colored overlay boxes on the schematic make it easy to locate the components that are being replaced. I would highly recommend the kits to anyone with a 4-pin Peterson style suitcase amplifier...they will make your Rhodes like new again!

Quiet Rhodes again!

I fixed up my amp module on my old peterson Rhodes and it is now quiet%21 It was so loud crackling most annoying sounds. Don%92t forget there are 2 Amp module so order 2 of these. Also very little as far as directions go%2C either know what you are doing or have a friend because they won%92t really offer you much help if you need it. Which I don%92t fault VV for because they are busy I am sure and these easy electrical questions take up tons of time. Thanks guys.

Good kit

Although my card was beyond repair and wasn’t able to be revived, this is a good kit.
