Re: Phaez Trigger Pull!

This is my Sourmash cab. I couldn't be happier with it. It really is beautifully constructed.

Re: Phaez Trigger Pull!

I wonder if the next time I'm in Florida the gentleman from Sourmash would teach me how to tolex corners like that. Mine turned out nice but I spent like 4 hours on them! That guy is a master.

I ordered it. Unfortunately, there is a one month wait until it gets in. The Dark Horses are in short supply right now.
I returned the Marshall Class 5. That thing had more rattles than a nursery !

Hip, I emailed Sourmash today. They will do the smaller 18watt as an extension cab. I haven't heard back on the price. If it is the same price($230) I'm getting one. They do a very nice job. Yours is beautiful!

Re: Phaez Trigger Pull!

At long last, the Phaez Daisycutter 18 is here!





These are some hasty pics. I plugged in the 2 12s from my Classic 50 to test it out, I don't have a cab. Sounds pretty good, lots of gain. I'm interested to hear it through a closed cab. I don't have any sound samples, having no mics or video camera.

Nice man! You finally got it. Welcome to the club (officially). Are you going to get/make a cab for it?

Re: Phaez Trigger Pull!

I'm going to need to make an enclosure for the chassis. For a cab, I'm thinking I'll buy one. By the time you buy a generic cab, speakers, shipping etc., it seems to come close to just buying one. I'd like to go with a 1 or 2x12 cab. We'll see. It may go on the back burner for a bit. The GAS fund needs recharging.

Come to think of it, I've tried almost every "type" there is in terms of Brittish voiced speakers. Hip has the American ones covered.

It could be. I'm not aware if they even have names for the colors, everyone seems to be different. I really had no idea what it would look like before I got it. I suppose I could have asked, but I like it. It would probably look cool in a tweed enclosure.

Re: Phaez Trigger Pull!

I located an electronics surplus store and ordered an electronics chassis cover to use for my daisycutter. It won't fit perfectly, unfortunately the chassis Randy is using isn't a standard size, so I'll have to rig it up a bit. It won't be 100% pretty but will provide protection.

This place also has old Sylvannia and RCA tubes, but unfortunately, all the popular ones like el84s are gone.

Re: Phaez Trigger Pull!

I changed out all of my preamp tubes, and now it sounds killer. I got a NOS 63' Mullard 12AX7 in V1, an EH 12AX7EH in V2, and a SAG AX7 MPI in V3 ( matched phase inverter tube with a higher current and better transduction. Sends more current to the power tubes.) Be aware that the new tubes that the New Sensor Corp makes don't fit in the base of the shield on V1, such as the EH12AX7 I have. I did tell Randy about it and he may have changed the shields that he was using. I must say, it was a lot of fun experimenting with the tubes. Relatively inexpensive, except for the Mullard.

Hawk, pretty sure the "Cinnamon" color is red. Go to my user profile page and look in my albums for pics of my amp. Its got the red face. He may call it "Cinnamon" but I just call it red.

Explain more about that PI tube. Where'd you get it. I read 12AT7 were best for that. BTW 4 phaez threads at the top of the forum lovin it

Re: Phaez Trigger Pull!

So I've got the standard DC with the 12ax7 and El84, what is the recommended upgrade for tubes?

Did you read that? Its matched. and the test all of the tubes. Only the ones with the highest current output are selected for those. Yeah, you are getting a 12AX7, but its totally rockin in the right places for the PI. I wont break up like a regular AX7, or as soon. They make 2 fender kits, mine is from the Marshall kit. Check out the Groove Tube Site. Read that thing I posted it explains the whole thing. I got the AX7 because I don't want less gain. My amp is not a blaze of gain.

I read it but as I understood it, AT7s are better for the PI? let me look at it again.

Re: Phaez Trigger Pull!

" 12AT7
o Has a published spec gain of 60-70
o Has a published spec current output of 10.0 milliamps (ten times that of the 12AX7
as a side note)
...
But, there is a third factor,
transconductance, to be considered. The 5751 has a transconductance of about 1200. A
12AX7 has a “TC” of about 1600 and a 12AT7 has a TC over 5000"

"Going from a 12AX7 to a 12AT7 in the PI (phase inverter) will yield a change in output tube
distortion, touch, and output dynamics in most amps.

• We have almost 10 times the current available to drive the output tubes before the phase
inverter starts to break down.
• We have a transconductance of 5500 vs 1600 of the 12AX7. Keeping this simple, it
means it takes a lot less input signal for a given output signal."

"You throw a 12AX7 in your PI slot with a 0.8mA output and you are 30% down on what the amp
can do right off the bat. Your amp is not as full, tight, responsive, or just plain “powerful” or
dynamic. "

A classic rock / blues kind of tone, but I wouldn't mind a touch of clean headroom if possible. I'm pretty happy with the tone of the DC as is, but if there are improvements on that sound that won't cost megabucks, I'll consider it.

JAN 5751 in v1 for sure. Talk to RH1 about the PI, not to sure on that one. I'd go with an 12AT7 but i'm still lost on that subject lol. BTW have you tried cranking your master all the way and putting the gain around 10 O clock? great blues tone there. That may be due to my 5751 though.

Re: Phaez Trigger Pull!

BUT, I dont want less gain. I still get an AX7 that is matched with the highest current available. I dont want a tobe with 40% less gain. I would never get my amp to distortion. I dont have a Daisycutter. I have a circuit based on a 59' Bassman. Did you read the part about the Tweed Bassman? I dont want that tube. The Marshall would have had an ECC83. I have the 12AX7M-PI. M stands for Mullard, its a copy. Got to the GT website. And those gain specs, are PUBLIShED gain specs. In real life tubes dont come near what they are supposed to. That is what GT is doing. Hand selecting the tubes with the best specs for the PI.

Ohhhhh so now I see. But if gain were not an issue, an AT7 would be best?

Go with the Groove Tube matched phase inverter 12AT7 if you want "clean headroom" Don't use a 12AT7 in V1, only V3. To further clean headroom yes a JAN5751 will do. I would advise changing one tube at a time to see the effect. You don't want to waste a bunch of money.
