Scott 299

Recommended Posts

This is my Scott 299 amp completely rebuilt, with a custom case I made of 1/2 in aluminum

and some roll stock for knobs and feet.

I made the fan case out of same materials. this build was before I built my matching Diy turntable

also posted on Klipsch diy turntable forum. Video on YouTube go to DIY Turntable Scott 299 amp

Wow, you do really nice work, great attention to detail.

What did you use to make the tube covers?

Thanks for sharing the pics, I thought your turntable pics were Sweet.

WOW.....what a wonderful restoration you have done here. Give it some Tele smalls and Mullard 5AR4 and you've got yourself a "lifer".

That is a "hot-rodded" amp, it just looks like a hot rod!

Did you bring the guts up to the level of the appearance?

Beautiful job, thanks for sharing the photos.

Thanks , No when I first got it and had the guts rebuilt, before I

did the case I didn't know enough to mod it, I am now just staring to

think about that. If you or anybody have any ideas I appreciate hearing

about it.

Thank You for asking Ken

Ken,

Some high praise right there. Craigs one of the guys that can tell you how to "hot rod" it. Now if he will is a different question [;)]

that's the most beautiful Scott 299 I've ever seen!!!! (and I thought my 299C was nice). How noisy are those fans in the rear, and what size are they? - If I may ask.

The fans are 3in and make almost no noise,

Nothing that you can hear even at the lowest volume

when playing something.

Thank You for the complement , Ken

Thank you for the compliment, It took about 5 months of weekends on an off.

The hardest part was learning how to polish the aluminum its a dirty job and takes

a lot of time, thank goodness for UTube ! the rest was just cutting and taping the aluminum.

a little tough with just normal tools at home, but relay not that big a deal to do.

The face plate I had the lettering silk screened buy a place in NY.

Thanks for the compliment, here is pic of front / knobs you asked for.

They are just 13/8 in. aluminum I cut , drilled and put a set screw in and polished.

WHEW! That is truly first-rate metal work! Beautiful! The fan 'housing' looks awesome as well.....do you find the amp getting overly hot? With this kind of aluminum work and thickness, there is probably very effective heat-sinking capacity. I have seen lots of chassis work over the years, and as a DIY effort your work is extremely good.

erik2A3 Thanks, the amp stays very cool ,I think its the fans.

Even the tubes stay only a little warm to the touch. Ken
