While restoring/modding my Dual Showman, a tech recommended me to try out 82 ohm screen grids resistors instead of the 470 ohms. I've tried to figure out the pros et cons, but I don't get it (right). Anyone who knows? Thanks in advance.
I recently stumbled over an old Hagström Special 60 RT guitar amp with 4xEL84.
It's Italian and I think Hagström just put their label on it, guess it's an SOUND or DNS amp.
The pots, caps, etc are crap so the amp behave a bit strange, but I've got hope to fix it.
Thing is I can't find much info...
I recently bought a high quality 2x10" (empty) guitar speaker cab. Suggestion for a versatile sensitive speaker(s) with tight bottom and nice top/brilliance is most welcome.
BTW, I like vintage alnico speakers, but my ears can't stan shrill/ear piercing noice anymore... :(
Thanks in advance...
I have a Fender Dual Showman Reverb (w/ push/pull master vol).
This amp should be loud as he** but it's like a mouse. I think it's weaker than my Deluxe reverb...
I changed all caps, didn't get any better. Any ideas what can cause this...?
Just when I thought I was out of boutique pu land,
it pulled me back again...
Short story, the ECP Hallowed Ground PAF's (HGP) made me curious.
I'm thinking of doing a "neck-pu-comparision" between the HGP, my first choice vintage PAF and my favorite vintage mini PAF.
Thumbs up if you...
I have an old Centralabs 2M pot in my drawer (it measure 1.6M).
Have anyone tried a 1.6M pot in a Les Paul?
Should I expect it to work like a "bright" but still "normal" vol pot,
or what happens?
What can it be used for if not in a guitar? :hmm:
Just stumbled over this 2001 Gibson SG Special.
No previous experience of SG's, but it feels nice.
Weight is about 6.6 lbs, neck is close to my R9 and it has the ABR-1.
It came with 490t/r pu's but they sounded a bit dull, so I replaced them with a set of old pu's (covers are Throbak MVX)...
I have this idea of putting a piece of (hard) wood under the bridge...
Besides helping the bridge to not collapse from string pressure, I was thinking it might positively affect the sound.
Any experiences or thoughts....?
