Folsom Chip Amp Help
« on: 16 Dec 2019, 08:54 pm »
So I have the amp board from Folsom already, and now looking for some advice on what parts combination to use to build it out.  I'd also like to see if there is anyone here who would be willing to build the amp for me.

There are two scenarios where this amp would be used (possibly both).

One, I'm looking at Danny's Studio Monitors for a recording studio that I'm putting together and Danny thought the Folsom amp might be a good match for mixing and mastering.

Second, and in conjunction with 2 pairs of servo subs, I'm eyeballing the NX-Otica MTM or possibly the Super Mini's to place on top of the servo subs (sounds like the Wedgie's are out of stock, but curious about those as well).  I haven't made it through all of the available info here yet, but intrigued by all of these options and would welcome any feedback.

Check out this website:

Radu Tarta is the man behind Simple Pleasure Tube amps. He built my Folsom's Little Chip amp for me. He did an excellent job; charged a reasonable fee, and communicated clearly throughout the process.

Radu Tarta says he is no longer doing solid state builds.

that's too bad about Radu not doing solid state amps anymore.. was hoping he'd do some of folsom's new higher power chipamps so we could see more reviews

Radu said he did a few 7293 amps too before he stopped.
