VIBRO-KINGTHEORY OF OPERATIONJ1 and J2 are summed by R11 and R12. These 10K Ω resistors are a lower than usual value for a tubeamplifier. This value was chosen for two reasons. 10K Ω is smaller than 33K Ω or 68K, Ω therefore theamplifier will produce less noise at high volume settings. Secondly, when linking two or more amplifiers acommon trick is to plug the guitar into Input 1 and use Input 2 as the output to the next amplifier. With 68KΩ resistors, 1/10th of the signal is lost with each link.After the input resistors, the signal is split and fed to V1A and V2A. V1A serves as a preamp for theReverb Drive, or Dwell control. The Dwell control feeds V3, a small power tube which drives the Reverb.V2A is a Cathode-Follower circuit which creates a low impedance, isolated (from the input) signal to drivethe Mix control (R2).V2B amplifies the Reverb return (sense) signal and sends it to the Tone control (R3). High frequencies aresent (shunted) to ground via C17. Varying R3 will move the wiper closer to or further from C17, thusmaking the Reverb brighter (Clockwise) or duller (Counterclockwise). The Reverb signal then sums withthe Dry signal at the Mix control (R2).After the Mix control, the signal travels to the Send jack (J3) of the Effects Loop. The signal is thenNormaled to the Return jack (J4) and drives V4A. This configuration allows the Reverb functions of theVibro King to be sent out to other amplifiers (via the Send jack). It also enables a player to insert a delayunit between the reverb and the amplifier for a Rock-A-Billy type effect. A Volume pedal can also beinserted to control the Guitar and the Reverb.The V4A circuit contains the Fat switch (S1). The Fat switch connects C4 to ground to provide a 3dBincrease in gain, mostly in the low and mid frequencies. R17 is there to prevent “popping” of the Fat switchwhen actuated. NOTE: the Fat switch may pop the first time it is switched. This is due to the warmup/stabilization cycle of the tube.The Volume control R4A is linked to R4B. R4B reduces the gain of the Reverb at high volume levels. Thisallows adjustment of the Volume without readjusting the Reverb Mix control.From the Volume control (R4A), the signal is fed to V4B, the Tone control driver section. The signal leavesthe tone controls through the Treble control (R5), and is fed to the Vibrato and Phase Inverter circuits.V6B is a low frequency oscillator. The Speed control (R8) varies the oscillation frequency. V6A is the NeonLamp driver. The lamp flashes faster or slower based on the position of the Speed control (R8). Thebrightness of the neon bulb is sensed by two LDRs (Light Dependent Resistors) in parallel. The resistorsconnect to the Intensity control (R9) which varies the amount of attenuation. Because the Vibrato circuitconnects to the amplifier directly after the Treble control, the high frequencies will attenuate before thebass frequencies. This simulates a rotating speaker effect.(TROUBLESHOOTING TIP: If the Vibrato does not function, first check the footswitch jack. The switchingpart of the jack serves to short one side of R57 to ground. If R57 is not grounded, the Vibrato will notoperate.If the Vibrato exhibits a clicking sound, the problem is caused by the position of the neon bulb in relation tothe LDR’s. Adjust the bulb by gently pulling on the leads. Test and repeat as necessary.)
VIBRO-KINGTHEORY OF OPERATION (CONT)The signal then feeds the Phase Inverter (V5), which is a classic style split-load type, used withoutfeedback.The output tubes (5881/6L6WGC) are arranged in a push-pull configuration that will produce sixty (60)watts into two (2)Ω.BIAS PROCEDURE: The bias, measured at pin 5 of V7 or V8 should be set to –46Vdc. However, theBias need not be measured to be accurately set. To set the Bias without removing the chassis, set theVolume knob between 1-1/2 to 2. (The Bias control is located on the under side of the chassis, next to thepower cable.) Adjust the Bias so the amp produces the maximum Hiss. Strum a full chord and let ring.Now, turn the Bias control back just to the point that the sound of the guitar loses warmth and sustain.Then increase it slightly. This will ensure minimum crossover distortion and the best sound.PARTS LISTPRINTED CIRCUIT BOARD 11PART 027353001036351001041269001DESCRIPTIONREFERENCE DESIGNATIONBULB NEON TYPE A2BCAP AE RDL 10uF 100V 20%LLCAP AE AX 22uF 25V 20%CAP AE AX 22uF 500VCAP AE AX 100uF 100VCAP AE AX 220uf 285VCAP SLVR MICA 150pF 300VCAP CD220pF 1000V 10%LLCAP CD250pF 1000V 10%LLCAP MPF RDL .01uF 630V 10%CAP MPF RDL .022uf 630V 10%CAP MPF RDL .1uF 630V 10%CAP MPF RDL .22uF 250V 10%CAP PFF RDL .0022uF 600V LLCAP PFF RDL .0068uF 600VCAP PFF RDL .47uF 100V 10% LLDIODE 1N4003 LLDIODE 1N4006 800V LLDIODE HV 3KV 200mA LLPHOTOCELL CDSE (LDR)RES CF 1/2W 5% 100Ω LLRES CF 1/2W5% 820Ω LLRES CF 1/2W5% 1.5KRES CF 1/2W5% 2.7K LLRES CF 1/2W5% 6.8K LLRES CF 1/2W5% 10K LLRES CF 1/2W5% 22K LLRES CF 1/2W5% 39K LLRES CF 1/2W5% 100K LLRES CF 1/2W5% 220K LLRES CF 1/2W5% 270K LLRES CF 1/2W5% 470K LLRES CF 1/2W5% 1M LLRES CF 1/2W5% 2.2M LLRES CF 1/2W5% 10M LLRES MOX FP 1W 470 Ω LLRES FILM 1W 5% 91K LLRES FILM 1W 5% 100K LLRES FILM 2W 5% 100Ω LLRES CF 2W 5% 1.2K LL(USED WITH PHOTOCELLS)C23,28C4,24,25,41C31-35,38 (@ FILTER CAP PC)C3,22 (C22 @ PWR SUPPLY PC)C29,30 (@ FILTER CAP PC)C7C36C16(@R2-3)C11,17,(@R3), 38,39C9,26,27C2,15,18,12C5C1C6C10CR5CR1-4CR7,8(2 PCS IN PARALLEL, NO BULB)R62,63R27R14,20,23,33,34,41R55R37R11,12 (@INPUT JACKS), 57,59R17,61,(@R10 BIAS 15,21,42R13(@INPUT JACKS) R18,25,28,51,52R45,46,58R50R35(@V8), 36(@V7), 60R29R16,19,22,30,43,47R70 (@V3)R66 (@ FILTER CAP PC)
