    Tweed Super Build

    Finally got some time to resume work. Finished making connections to the tube sockets and the board, I’ll wire the heaters and pots next.

    Popping and static sound as amp powers up or down

    Have you tried running it with no tubes? What happens when you run with just the rectifier? What happens when you add the 6v6? What happens hen you add the 12ax7? Another 2204 build I had made squeaks and pops on power up and shutdown. Those sounds went away after I put in a quality OT...

    Popping and static sound as amp powers up or down

    My 5f1 clone made intermittent popping and crackling noises. Turned out to be the RCA style speaker output jack. Tapping on the plug and cable with a chopstick finally revealed the problem (after tube and other changes). I replaced the RCA with a 1/4” jack and haven’t had any problems since. You...

    Looks fine, not that much different from my 2012

    Your pics have a chrome Nashville bridge, the other pic has a nickel ABR-1 bridge.

    Right, it’s usually the Trad Pros that have the 60’s neck and no pup covers.

    You need to look this guitar up, one of our members has a Traditional website that lists many models. I’ve never heard of this model and your seller’s pics say “Tribute” on them. Hopefully someone can post a link here for you so you can look it up. The rest of that hardware is chrome and...

    Is this a Tribute or a Traditional? The regular Traditional did not come with a 60’’s neck, did it?

    Possible New Guitar. Please Help.

    It looks new so I assume that you can return it if you can’t make it work for you.

    Not sure about the reissue thing. How much is he asking?

    2020 NAMM - Gibson News, Pics, Videos

    Am I seeing a DC LP with buckers and 4 knobs? Both videos passed them right by without mention. I’d like to see some closeups.

    Building a Marshall 2204 JCM800 50W Clone

    Turn the treble and mids to 0 and the gain and bass to 10. That amp will sound so dark you won’t believe it. Your ideal settings will probably be somewhere in the middle. Go easy on the treble and mids.

    Tweed Super Build

    I just realized that the NFB is done differently on this amp than on the Marshall 2204. The 2204 connects to the 4ohm tap and uses a 100k resistor. The Super connects to the 4ohm tap but uses a 56k resistor. What’s the difference?

    Tweed Super Build

    Just have to screw the board down to the chassis and I can start making all the connections. I’m planning to wire the heaters last. We’ll see how that works out. I have to get a couple of sheet metal screws. These kits never supply those.
