Great day at Conrad Johnson…

Great day at Conrad Johnson…

Spent the day Wednesday with Lew Johnson and Bill Conrad at the Conrad Johnson factory. It was a great time getting to see where many of the legendary amplifiers and preamplifiers I’ve owned were built and got to meet the rest of the staff as well.

But the best part of the visit was to watch my MV-50 be rebuilt with the new CJ C-1 Capacitor upgrades and have the power supply upgraded to current specs, replacing the 33 year old electrolytic capacitors with new, polypropylene capacitors. Johnson pointed out that my MV-50 “should easily last another 33 years, if not longer” thanks to the new caps.

Watch for a full report in the “Old School” section of TONEAudio in December. In the meantime, if you have an older C-J amp or preamplifier that you’d like to have upgraded, click here for details:
