    On the layout drawing, I see 4 resistors and a cap flowing into the junction of the 820 and 100 ohm resistors. Could one of those be throwing things off?

    Although the problem could be a lot of things, you might try testing the input jacks before moving on. If the problem goes away when plugged into one of the jacks but not the others, replace that...

    This is just a wild guess. You may have a bad or slightly bent input jack where the switching tab is not making a solid connection and vibration is setting it off. The jacks that come with some of...

    Did the amp sound that bad before the cap job? If not, I'd go back and check my work. The symtoms sound similar to an amp I worked on a few months ago. Problem turned out to be a broken lead inside...

    I liked your idea of using P-90 style pickups. They really sound good with a 5E3. I'm currently using Duncan Phat Cats in one of my guitars. Very nice pickups!

    Enzo, thanks a lot. I think something like that should fill the bill. I really appreciate the reply.

    Padding down 5E3 input for keyboard

    My guitar amp is a Weber 5E3 Proluxe. I'd like to be able to use it for practice and low volume gigs with my keyboard (an Alesis QS6.1) but a hot signal from the QS6 and a very touchy volume control...

    Maybe they were pushed in at some point. A plain G string has a lot more output than a fifties-correct wound G. The mod would make sense to get a better balance across the strings with a modern set...

    I went through that with a different amp. The unwound G string would break up before the others. I got around it by putting a lower gain tube in V1. Try a 12AY7 or a 5751 in place of the first 12AX7....

    Will you be using a choke or a resistor in it's place? What about a switch between them, or between two different value resistors? It might be nice to be able to "brown" the amp out a little. By the...

    It's worth mentioning that some players will jump the tone control off the center (output) lug of the volume control rather than the input lug or the switch. This minimizes the loss of highs while...

    Strats can be difficult to EQ. If you set your amp bright to get that classic Knophler sound in positions 2 and 4, positions 1,3 and 5 will probably be on the ice-picky side. If you set it to get a...

    Bulletproofing a Vibro Champ
