BC26NST

Post by masluck » Sat Oct 27, 2012 8:09 pm

Good Evening BC Nation,

I just wanted to share that Gilbut has been busy transforming my 12 year old BC26 MKI into basically a brand new amp - new NST input and the latest BC output stage (a 50th birthday gift from my wife). Also, a major revision to the power supply with some KQ goodies thrown in for good measure. I don't have it yet, as it is still being completed, but I have to say that anybody that has an original BC26, and knows what the guts look like, will not recognize this amp. I am getting very excited to bring it back into the rig :D :D :D

Here is the link to the pictures (thanks Gilbut for posting them!!!)

Thanks George!!

Many thanks for loosening up the amp for me and for allowing me to audition the excellent AAD Silver 7's - nice combo!! I got the amp setup Sunday morning and to be candid, I am just blown away by how good this "BC26-NST-LOC-L'il KQ" (what I call it...) sounds. I know it still needs break in, but top to bottom an amazing metamorphosis. My modded BC21 is a very content partner with it and I could not be happier!! :D :D :D :D

Many kudos to Gilbut and BC for having such a viable upgrade path for their gear - nobody, IMHO, works with their customers at the level BC does and if you can dream it, they can do it!!!
