    EL3N users, my Glenn EL3N amp sometimes seems to have contact lose and no sound when I insert it. Any tips what I can do to get a perfect fit every time?
    PS it always seems to be the same side (left), so I wonder if it's a socket issue? Anyway to 'reset' the socket?

    EL3N socket contact can become quite loose but I don't know your particular amp.
    Haven't you contacted the manufacturer for advice?
  3. jelt2359 Contributor
    I have, but he's built only one of these so far. I figure you guys may have more experiences with these tubes and these sockets :D

    Jelt, this is the easy way to renew it. Use a small flat screw driver and insert into the bottom slot of the contact as shown in the picture. Press downwards gently on the top handle of the screw driver, creating a fulcrum motion and the middle part of the contact will be pushed outwards.
    Do this for all the 8 contacts.

    Thanks! And for the tube itself? Do I pull out the paddles?
  6. UntilThen
    Don't touch the paddles on the tubes. :)

    Speaking of paddles, do you know what one boat said to the other one?
    It's time for some row-mance.

    Don't scare me Jason, I just sent payment for my Lundahl transformers for this amp !  [​IMG]

    If it's the contacts that has been pushed in, it's quite easily remedied by doing what I described above. Glenn's EL3N amp is another amp I would to listen to. As well as his OTL amp and Zana Deux and DNA Stratus.
    Too many tube amps to try. Can't possibly buy them all. [​IMG]

    Thanks, yeah it looks like a fairly easy fix.....they are 10,000 hour tubes, so once they are in they can stay for a long time, and can concentrate on rolling rectifiers, lol
    Your La Figaro 339 looks nice  [​IMG]
    I hear you...way to many tube amps....so little money and time!
  13. UntilThen
    When you get the EL3N amp, alert me. I want to see your photos and hear your impressions. [​IMG]

    The Chinese side pin sockets are not the best. Maybe I should buy some European Used side pin sockets and pick out the good ones.

    My experience with these is that you set them once, and you'll never have to touch them again.
    Good thing there's no rolling of EL3N!
