Swan 1200X Linear Amplifier Converted to 1200W Using 6LQ6 tubes Project
This is a nice example of the classic Swan 1200X amplifier that has been converted by a previous owner to use 6LQ6 rather tubes than the original 8950's. This I believe makes it essentially a 1200W. May just need tubes to get it on the air, may need more.See pictures and you make the call. This looks like a case of converting from one crappy sweep tube to another; kind of a waste in my opinion. Perhaps it was a case of tube availability.. It looks like a relay has been added for some purpose just to the left of the power transformer; see picture. This unit has good "bones", with no dents or gouges on the cabinet; a coat of paint would make it pristine. My original plan was to pull out all the sweep tube wiring, and move the power supply components to a separate cabinet to make room for a pair of "proper" transmitting tubes, the RCA 813. The specs for the 813 indicate that it may be mounted on an angle if the tube grids are oriented correctly, so I think this would be a nice conversion. Comes with a clean copy of the manual. Inclusion of other parts or accessory components (manuals, cables, cases, and the like) not mentioned in the verbiage or shown in the pictures is neither expressed nor implied.
