    Yeah, there are some builds going on...

    Just deciding if either of these chunks of iron will do the job. They're both really a bit too much transformer for the amp I've got in mind, but I went for the one on the right in the end. The Classic Tone just never sounded nice, so it made sense to not go there.

    Strymon Iridium

    Is anybody in here looking at the new Strymon Iridium? It's a pedal size modelling amp that seems to be aimed at a price point a little lower than the HX Stomp. It models three amps (Fender blackface, Vox, Marshall) and various cabinets. It has a bunch...

    New Cabinet Day: I call this amp...

    Danger Mouse. Cuz it's only 5 Watts, so it's kinda mouse like in size, but it's loud and dangerous.

    iRig & Amplitude

    Who's using the simple iRig into Amplitude on a phone or pad? Is anybody getting any decent sounds out of this thing? I got one to see what it was like, with the intention of my daughter using it for practice or whatever on her old iPod touch 5. But I'm finding it kinda crappy sounding and not...

    New Build: Tweed...thing

    I planned to do a quick build earlier this year to 'warm up' for a more complicated job sitting on my bench. This is the supposedly quick build. It's kind of based on a tweed Champ, and it looks like this: The cab is from Mojo, and it's a tweed Princeton with some mods. Here's one of the...

    New Fender-Inspired Build

    This is a project that's been a long time in gestation. I've been thinking and speculating about it for more than 18 months, and more recently I've been doing some calculations. Now that I think I've finally solved the technical problems, I got off my quoit and made a start. This one may take...

    Magnetic Components Trannies?

    Does anybody in here have any experience with their product? They look very reasonably priced for what they are. :hmm: I'm thinking about trying some in a little 5F1 kind of thing.

    Transformers & Rectos

    I have been doing some calculations for a power supply for an amp I want to build, and my mind turned to the power transformer. I have this international Mojotone PT that's their drop-n for Super Reverbs and black face Bassmans. It has a bunch of primaries, but only one choice for the HT...

    Fender content: Screens coupled to plates?!?

    I was looking at the old Fender 5E7 schematic for the narrow panel tweed Bandmaster. Strange device! Cathode follwer tone driver, treble / bass / presence tone controls, cathodyne PI (??!!). Odd. But anyway, my eye lit upon the power section and saw that the screens are run from the centre...

    5E3 build

    Yes, I've finally got around to doing this amp. I have the parts but I need to get the cab done first. Here's what I've got so far: The cab on its own, in the wild: And now I have to get the thing covered. Eek!:shock:. I hate this bit: More as it happens.:thumb:

    Rectifier Valves

    I was recently mucking around with my Bassman, changing power valves and rectos and changing it from cathode biased back to adjustable fixed bias. In the process I measured some voltages with various rectifiers in the circuit and I found the results interesting. The numbers given below are the...

    Building a Tweed Deluxe...suggestions?

    A couple of weeks ago I was off to rehearsal and I went to grab my Champ head. Then I looked at my 2x12 cab that goes with it and somewhere at the back of my cerebellum the monkey rebelled and said, 'Boy, you need a one-handed amp!' So I decided to build a tweed Deluxe. :D I've bought a kit and...
