The originals had Mercury Magnetics transformers and I believe ceramic tube sockets. Mike Soldano personally worked and smoothed every original finned aluminum grill. It got to be too much work and too expensive so he stopped using them. Great amps and built very well.

Thanks for the reply...some good info. Maybe you could answer another question for me. Would it be possible to run the amp through a small board between the amp and cab?

If you're talking about a "mixing board", absolutely not! The amp needs a load (the speaker cabinet) or you will cause damage to the amp.

Why are you wanting to run a board inbetween?

No effects loop on the amp...just throwing spitballs.

The only way to run delays and reverbs or an effects processor thru an Avenger is using a Wet/Dry setup. See this post from Rig-Talk to help http://www.rig-talk.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=145537

Best box to use is. Suhr ISO Box in between the amp and speaker cab. You can then take that signal to a delay unit or effects processor...then from the OUT jack of the processor plug into a power amp...into a separate speaker.

So, Avenger to DRY cab(no effects)....Line Out to Effects Processor to Poweramp which powers the WET cab.

Hope that makes sense. Takes a few more pieces of gear but this is how the pros do to and sounds much better.

Avengers

The Avenger debuted in 2003 and the serial numbers begin with A. The original Avenger was 100 watts. The first one was A001 and the latest is A333. A 50 watt version was introduced in 2005 and these have serial numbers beginning with A5, so the first one was A-501. They are now up to A555. Effects loop was added as an option in 2005 for both the 50 and 100 watt Avengers and these use the same numbering respectively with the addition of an L at the end of the number. The Avengers with Effects loop are called Hot Rod Avengers and those with no loops are called Avengers. The first Hot Rod 50 Avenger was A522-L. The first Hot Rod 100 Avenger was A235-L. The most recent HR50 Avenger is A558-L and the latest HR100 Avenger is A335-L.

Obviously we will have a numbering problem when we get up to 500 100 watt Avengers.

Great info.

Biggest change to the Avenger is transformers. Soldano has used Mercury Magnetics, Marvel, and O'netics (one other current one as well). They all sound and feel a little different. I prefer the MM and 2nd generations with Marvels. Those just had more punch to my ears.
