    Yep.. everyone has a crt story.. old laser tech was as bad or worse. Probably the worse I got was as a kid and I accidentally touched the 220 house mains. My hand closed and I couldn’t let go. My...

    The Akai/Roberts had capstan sleeves as I remember. Yep step pulleys in some brands/models. Some even provided the conversion pulley attached by a screw to the cabinet or chassis inside.

    I would hard wire one pickup at a time to an output jack. Any difference? If one is bad.. put it back to the stock configuration. Any difference? It’s tedious but you may have to do it.

    Yep.. I use a 2x EL84 two channel amp with a switchable attenuator. It’s all you need for clubs nowadays. Maybe a mic on it. For a less 25 watt amp the Weber attenuator is really nice and you can’t...

    Forget all of this. If you want to “tame” a 100 watt Marshall, pull 2 power tubes and get a power soak speaker attenuator. I have never understood using a Marshall or a Twin Reverb with the master on...

    Does this amp require the foot switch for the Reverb to work? It has a pretty complex 3 button foot switch. I would look at that as well.

    I’ve done blind tests with “golden ears” musicians and no one could tell the difference with a range of cables in good repair for the most part. The exception might be “curly” cords. I’ve even wired...

    Start with the basics. Clean the tape monitor switches. Take a line out from your preamp section (tape rec) and see if it’s clean into another amp. Run a source signal into the tape in. If both...

    Couple of diodes.. doubt if it would make a huge difference. If its out of a R to R it’s probably a single ended amp.
