I'm pretty sure that is Russ Kall's work. Note the printed tape on the new caps and the bent legs on the extra OPT's.

If it is one of Russ's, and it doesn't have one of the bad Transistors (at some point he ended up with a batch of counterfeits) , it will be fine. I had a couple different amps that he did the mods on. I run my amps pretty hard and never had an issue.

Did you actually get that amp for $275? If so, that might be the steal of the century!
