    I'm doing more research now as I had missed the tag under the socket. I've reached out to Gryphon as they should have knowledge of the current voltage setting for it.

    Until recently Gryphon did not have any US dealers and would not convert their products to 110v for the North American market. I found this exchange on another board from 2016

    "No, we have no US distributor. However we have US Service facilities"

    " No, we will not factory-direct sell a product for the North American market"

    " No, we will not permit European dealers to order 110V product intended for the NA market"

    " You may purchase a new or used 220V product in Europe , then ship it to us for 110V conversion at the factory but we will not ship it to NA, only back to the original dealer in Europe".

    So their amps can be converted to 110 but until now they would not do it to stop it from being sold in America. Apparently this has changed because now they show US dealers on their website. Who did the 110 conversion on this unit is probably not known.

    This was originally a $10,000 amp and it weighs over 150 lbs. Besides the discoloration on the top I don't see anything else to say its beat. I did read these run extremely hot so that is probably why the top is stained.
  • DSkipDSkip Posts: 16,209
    I know. Do you know what that would cost? It would not be a cheap option in any sense of the word. You'd end up paying market price or more for one that has been beaten. I import gear like this and know the costs and can say if it is in fact 220 you don't want to buy it.

    If it's 110/120, then it's worth a chance. If you aren't in the Oregon area though tack on another $550-700 for freight service.

    Very nice! But that is a lot of tubes. I guess you enjoy it till the original tubes wear out then throw it away!

    I wonder how many people tube roll with this amp.

    Tubes last a good long time. Bob had a circuit that made them run at about half of their max yet got all he needed out of them.
    Besides most power tubes you do not roll, I believe that is the signal tubes you mostly roll. That set has 4 in each. Your preamp tube rolling may be more beneficial.

    Hard to tube roll a Pass Labs X1. :p

    I have found that swapping out the Tung Sol signal tubes in my amps was a good move. I run early 60’s Bugle Boys and the sound improved dramatically over the original tubes.
