Vanderveen TRANS SE-10 valve amp


The Trans-SE10 is an A4-sized stereo tube amplifier kit with Trans valve-electronics. The electronic design stems from Menno van der Veen (ir. bureau Vanderveen). Mechanical design and kit manufacturing is by Guido Tent (Tentlabs).

This DIY kit comes with all parts required. The cabinet is partly pre assembled. The high quality 70um PCB needs full assembly. High quality parts are used throughout. All transformers are Vanderveen-Toroidals manufactured by Trafco in Serbia. The kit comes standard with KT88 power tubes; alternatives can be applied.

The pdf format construction manual is totally based on pictures. They tell more than many words and logically guide you through the construction process.
