Here are some pics of recapping my SBE SB1-LA amplifier. This is a 1200 watt PEP amp that puts out 600 watts. This amp uses old sweep tubes I plan on doing a per tube bias mod that I will post when I get the time to dig into it.

 

The recap job was easy and should be done if your amp has the original caps in it. I mounted the new caps on a perf board then mounted the perf board to the existing board behind the caps. I also had to move 1 resistor to the perf board for room.

Remember to discharge any caps before working on them as they can contain lethal voltages. See pics of my project below.
