hi dubbers,
its the 2nd post i write .. i dont use forum but i want to share my humble work .. im not a a professionnal but perhaps it gonna help you Smile sorry for my english ..

i have restored my K-10 .. and here is explains for what i done ;

- i have begun to change the Selenium rectifier for a silicon one :

i have placed it there for the pic .. glue it on left side,close to his original place (Dont put it on right side ,it will make hum with the Transformer )
then, i have insulated the wires ..
after this , im sure its a "clean" gear .. beacuse i&i have to care of our health Wink

- i have replaced all the chemical capacitors ,including the 4 section cap !!

its a bit difficult but a 50 years old cap is dead for sure (hum;noisy ,..)

i don't found a 40MF .. i replace it by a 47MF ..
you have to unsolder the big Cap ..

then join the 4 new caps with a plastic ring or tape ..( i used the rectifier's hole for pass it through the steel box)

Don't forget to insulate the + of each cap and stripes (not yet on pic)..

after a big tribulation .. all was re-soldered with resitors & caps ... yes iii
the reverb works really great with a mic preamp before input unit (thks interruptor!!) input repuire min 0,2v to 5V .. so you can preamp the signal!!
King tubby's style without much noise !! whaoooo , now , i can mix it with an AUX send like my other fx ..

- i have put a steel plate because you have a big hole now !!!!!


elctronic parts are ok now .. i will build her a wood box .. She deserve it !!!
Next part soon come

One love...

EN FRANCAIS ca vous parlera + ??

salut les dubbers,
c est mon second post, je suis pas expert des forums mais jvoulais faire partager mon humble travail .. jsuis pas un pro mais peut etre que ca pourra vous aider .

j ai restaur ma K10 .. voila ce que j ai fais :

- j ai commenc par changer le vieux redresseur en selemium , certains disent que c grave toxique .. cette odeur bizarre ..aparement c ca !!...ca lui fera pas de mal et moi aussi Wink!
voir photos ci dessus ..

- jai chang tous les condensateurs chimiques , surtout les gros dans le bloc en alu rond .. assez chaud a dessouder .. un peu de bricolage pour les fixer ds la boite ..bien isoler le tout biensur .. et c parti Wink
metter un 47MF la place du 40

ca fonctionne maintenant nickel .. sans souffle ( enfin 80 % en moins)!!
pour ceux qui ne savent pas quoi faire .. faudrait tester de changer tout .. condo+ resistances pendant qu'on y est Wink!! ya pas grand chose en fait l interieur ..jvais d ailleurs la cloner prochainement ;;
Je lui ai mis un pramp en entre .. genre avec du 2 v , elle se sent bien ..(0,2 5v) juste avant la saturation c impec !preamp line en entre console et ca roule en Aux send Wink
la boite en bois a ete recycl , repeinte ,etc .. ca partais la poubelle sinon Wink))

DIY is the way

1love

i would not have a problem to spend 150$ on a beauty like this.. but the ones i have seen are going off ebay for way over 200$ plus they usualy want about 60$ for the shipping to germany.. Confused
