Up for sale is Fisher 500B restoration kit. The scarcity of good, honest techs who can do a good and reasonably priced restoration/rebuild of audio equipment (especially tube gear) made me start offering this restoration kit.
In today's day and age it is very hard to come by a knowledgeable tech who can service your audio gear well. I have seen many poor quality restoration of equipment that cost way too much to its owners. In 99% of the cases there were only few parts replaced, instead of a full and proper restoration job. In this kit I offer parts and instructions for a full/complete restoration of your audio equipment.
I have been servicing audio equipment for many years and have developed deep respect toward all good equipment, especially tube gear. I really do think they sound amazing if properly restored. I have seen many bad quality restorations/fix jobs done to these units that made them sound cheap and very low quality. Knowing how amazing and warm these units can sound, I have decided to develop this kit to help you do a great job on your equipment. It includes very good upgrades and improvements that MUST be done to the unit.
For example, individual biasing, phono stage upgrade, thermistor upgrade etc. The kit also includes a lot of interesting information about the company itself and its founder Mr. You will also receive an interesting Fisher handbooks with very insightful details about various other tube equipment that was manufactured back then. Please do your audio equipment a favor and replace the most important components that are most likely 90% dead.Power / Filter stage caps are those large silver cans mounted on top of the chassis and sometimes underneath. This restoration pack will make a huge difference in the sound quality. All the parts are of high quality Japanese Nichicon / Panasonic / IC / United Chemi capacitors.
I provide several instructions on how to mount those new electrolytic caps. Best one is to rebuild those original cans.
You will receive a step-by-step instructions and all the proper caps needed for that. This technique will keep the original look of the receiver. Knowing how many bogus/fake caps, diodes, resistors etc. Out there, I source all the parts from reputable.
Please be patient and let's get your little birdy sing again. Included in this kit: 1. Nichicon / Panasonic / IC / United Chemi. Detailed instruction with colorful images, schematics, manuals (all of these are in electronic form, I consider these much better than printed version due to zoom availability).
