RE: Last Pas by David Vorhis

Hi Shovel,
I don't know what to tell you but the wiring is from the Last PAS. I know what you mean about the big cap banks, mine came without them...I saw them in the article.
It's in the middle. I traded an extra PAS to a new friend from the old Audiomart. He wired the preamp and a Stereo 70 Purist Audio mod for me. In return I made up a faceplate.
I went to a trophy store and had a little brass plate made up that said (Modification by Bob Gates) just big enough to cover the tone controls. A little strip of wood covers 2 slide switches. I only have on/off and tape monitor. I ran out of PAS-2 knobs so I used some from a SCA-80Q or PAT-4. It used to be spit -shine bright but now may look like Grandpa Munsters old little dusty Eico.
I still talk to Bob all the time, an audio penpal from the early eighties. He was room mates in college or the Air Force with Jim Aud who runs Purist Audio. If something differs from the original Last PAS it's okay with me. I look in awe at some of his soldering.
I know a year ago you tried to show me how to send a picture, I still have the instructions written down. Well Vinnie made it simple enough for simply me to do it now....but he might of awakened a sleeping giant as now I could attack with quirky audio project pictures much like the boring slide shows Fred Rutherford projects for the Cleavers...take care Mark K.
