Shouldn't the picture of #002 be a silver colored chassis like Mayer's?

I think they are just file names not the actual serial number.

I find it interesting that HAD made his own circuit boards for these SSS.
Seeing he would usually tweek a circuit, I would think circuit boards would make it a lot more difficult.

Those numbers are not serials, just sequential numbering of photos. Photo number one is interesting, it looks like it has eight preamp tubes, and the chassis can actually accommodate nine. :shock:

Maybe the two extra tubes would be for tremolo and a built in Dumbleator?

It has two slider switches after the volume, so it looks like it could be SSS #01.
So guessing, would it be 3 for the pre-amp/filter/mixer, 1 for the trem, 2 for reverb and 2 for the driver/P.I
No FET circuit though???

Take a closer look at the one amp, PCB with eyelets. It is the same as the construction that I use on my SOD II and Overdrive deluxe amps.

Just to avoid confusion: The "SSS02.jpeg" is a picture of SSS #004.

As IMO you can see on the "SSS01.jpeg" the amp pictured seems to have a version of what I call the "pre-classic" (500K treble, 250K middle, 1M bass) tonestack. The "James configuration" at the bass pot and the bigger (Clariostat AFAIR) 500K treble pot of the 2nd generation ODS amps e.g. IMO seem to be rather obvious. Or don't you think so?

Cheers,

Max

I added a comment to the SSS02.jpg this it was #004.

Thanks, Max

Perhaps I should start naming pictures with a letter suffix to avoid confusion.

Awesome work on the PDF super100!!! quick question as i am recently learning about the SSS. Shouldn't there be a value for the coil that feeds the Filter? Also, Am I correct that the filters are comprised of the RC Networks on two rotary switches??? HAD is an american treasure!!!!
Thanks, Mike

I think there is quite a variety and evolution in each SSS Alexander built. This is the schematic for a single specimen.

Hi Lefty , This is true!!, but ,for example, there are some differences between layout and electrical scheme of the #0002!. You can get misunderstanding!

Is there a voltage-chart somewhere?

Yes, I can't guarantee the accuracy, I did not draw the schematic. It was supposedly drawn by someone in Japan.
