Well I finally built my Surfybear. Only one pic for now but I'll post some gut shots soon:


Many thanks to everybody here for making this possible: Surfy Industries and all you guys who posted your builds. Special thanks to members bjoish, kinski and j_flanders for painstakingly answering my amateur questions - I couldn't have done it without you.

To say I love the sound in an understatement. The reverb tail in my Accutronics 4AB3C1B pan is too long though. I think I'd prefer a short decay pan. Very hard to find a 4AB1C1B made by Belton/Accutronics. All I've found is MOD pans, which from the demos I've seen sound very dark and I'm not a fan.

Just a couple more pictures.


Hello, what is the output impedance of a surfybear?

Hi hmazzoli

The output impedance of both SurfyBear (kit+Classic) and 6g15 is in the order of 100-200kOhms. This is quite high and makes the output sensitive to the capacitance of guitar cable. So, with a long cable to the amp you tend to get a darker sound.

Thanks a lot!
