DIY Workshop Bell Howell Filmosound Amp Conversion

Feb 05, 2019 The interest in Bell Howell Filmosound amps goes back to the 1990s and many credit Bernie Raunig with kicking the whole thing off. Despite being UK-made, a plate above the fuse socket indicates that this amp runs on 110V. At the time, Raunig was based in Hamilton, Canada and began doing Bell Howell conversions for local musicians.
