The Fine Things are Always Hand Made
My Phantom has had the power transformer replaced sometime in the past. I also am not sure if the can filter capacitors are original. Does anyone out there have an original unit out, where you can easily take some closeup pictures of the top and bottom view so I can compare to what I have. Thanks for any help you can give me.
Can you place a photo here so that I can see what version you have? There are several different Phantom supplies as the sets evolved. Also, don't be so sure about the power transformer: if this is an FM Phantom manufactured late, many of these have power supplies with a black transformer. There is some literature suggesting that Scott had heat problems with the chrome units in the larger later sets (FM Philly and Phantom). A photo will help to be sure I can locate a similar supply to send you some pics to compare with....thanks!
Ah....THAT Phantom supply...ok, agree, that is a replaced power transformer. I will check on what I have available. Looks like one of the caps may be original, but two are likely replacements. I will check tonight to see if I have a transformer for you...thanks, the picture helps a lot! - Kent
Here are some picture of my supply...I am not sure my capacitors are original, but they look like they are (no signs of re-soldering).
Let me know what else you'd like to know about this supply.
