Loudness function retro-fit:
We can retro fit the loudness function to your existing model Aretha as long as it does not have a remote volume control fitted.
This would involve fitting a new front panel, adding the loudness switch, a small pcb and change some wiring.
Cost for this upgrade will be $115.00, plus shipping back to you of $65.00, to the lower 48 only.
The loudness function WILL NOT work with a remote volume control!
Designed with flexibility in mind, Aretha is a classic tone control, 6SL7 based tube preamplifier with a separate 12AY7 phono preamp, all housed in the same custom hand made wood chassis.
Now as standard, a loudness switch. Please note, the loudness function will not work with a remote volume control!
Various customizations are available, such as no phono preamp, no TAPE/SOURCE switch and an infrared remote volume control.
Please contact us with any other special requests you may have for your Aretha.
