    I'd start simple - just a big resistor. Remember it's a good idea to provide some heat sink. Those Dale & similar gold-anodized hi tech looking resistors are just fine, and you can get 'em at...

    I've seen a similar Sano, where one of the 8" speakers carried reverb only, and the 15" and other 8" handled the dry signal, with a resistor - 10 ohms IIRC - in series with the dry 8. Seems they...

    I don't see why not, both fuse and grounding. If you were to convert the amp to guitar use, who would think twice about it? Of course there may be some real Hammond expert out there who can fill us...

    Your plans all look good to me. Ordinarily I'd avoid going over 50 uF on a 5U4, but there's a nice resistor in the way before the current hits the cap, plus you're only looking at 320V, so I wouldn't...
