    Your Go-to Guitar That Surprises Even You

    I own a nice R9 (see avatar), a PRS Studio, a Heritage H555 and a couple of higher end Strats. They are all fine instruments that I enjoy playing. But here's what I generally reach for first: It's a 2010 Squier Classic Vibe Tele Custom with upgraded pickups (Broadcaster bridge, Twisted Tele...

    FS: Mesa Boogie Express 5:25 1x10 combo

    For sale here is a late 2000's Mesa Boogie Express 5:25 1x10 combo. Includes footswitch and cover, and will ship in the original box. Well-taken care of amp, used only in my home and at very modest volumes. I am the 2nd owner, but the original owner obviously took excellent care of the amp as...

    Should work. You'd need to determine what size dropping resistor you'd need on one side of the switch to get the plate voltage down to the recommended range for the 6G6 type, which looks to be 180V max. from the datasheets I could find. I doubt you'd need to do anything to run the 6K6 (315V...

    Last (I promise!) tube change: I bought a second ECC823 hybrid preamp tube (first triode = 12AX7, second = 12AU7) to try running my Picovlave with this tube type in both V1 and V2. (Special thanks to Wagdog, who was good enough to buy one for me along with an order he was placing with...

    If it does it with the amp input muted, a noise gate won't help any. You'd be better off trying some kind of filter on your incoming power.

    What exactly do you mean by "weird interference"? Can you describe it?

    Jet City Picovalve mod thread

    Clearly, the 1.5M resistor was a mistake and screwed things up royally. But let's look at more reasonable values.... The function of that cathode resistor is to determine the stage gain--lower resistance will equal more gain, other things being equal. As the Amp Books calculator shows, if...

    Assuming you have the two caps soldered across the two pairs of end lugs, then it should be straightforward. With virtually all toggle style switches, the toggle bat points the opposite direction of the selected end pair of lugs.
