Here in Rockville we have a fairly consistent 120VAC out of the wall so I don't bother with any regulators etc.

Just curious if anyone here uses voltage regulation to feed their amps.

I don't use regulation but I will use a Variac when working on older amps to get the correct AC in.

Brian,

Yeah I should have specified old vintage amps built to run on lower voltages of the day, modern amps with PT's made for today's voltages probably aren’t an issue.

I'll rephrase and ask who uses some sort of regulation to run their old vintage amps within specified voltage?
Perhaps something like this... http://www.geofex.com/article_folders/v ... ntvolt.htm

BTW I finally built one of these, drops 6 or 12 volts. I typically see 121 here so that's 115/109, handy for keeping the tubes happy in my old Deluxe Reverb..
