    This ^^^^^

    please note that I've found the hard way that Seymour Duncan and DeMarzio have different color codes that made it somewhat confusing when I had the two in hand. Double check!

    +1 on that. If you are looking for the amp to speak its character then set the volume full on the amp, use the vol on the guitar to find the level or 'sweet spot' you're looking for.

    Without knowing what the circuit looks like, or what may have been connected to all those loose wires, I'll hazard that the owner wanted reverb.

    Doesn't cost me anything to be wrong :tape:

    The house I'm living in was wired in the early half of the 20th century. Cloth-covered 110VAC wiring, and of course no ground, only N and L. Different color code than I'm used to? I think it was just...

    I know there are folks from the Baltimore area (Bal'mer) who habit MEF. That's pretty close to your location?

    I'm tempted, but it's more than a few hours drive from the far corner of Ohio. I'm sure someone closer will be blessed by your generosity.
    Thanks, Steve!

    Another article about room-temperature superconductors! Not to be cranky or pessimistic, but along with cold fusion, I've been promised this future for the last 50 years :tape:

    +1. I've gotten some black and gold grille cloth from Mojo with a weave pattern that looks the same as that. Don't know if they have all black.

    If the 22k resistor in question is in the power supply, 5ma to a couple 12AX7 tubes sounds about right. On the other hand, 5ma across a grid leak? It hurts to imagine.

    As an aside, my experience...

    Right. R78 and R79 are the 5W 470 Ohm cement resistors. Opposite side of the board from R4 and R11. See my post #14

    this ^^^^^^

    I built an amp from scratch, 2x 6V6, with a 100ma PT. I learned the hard way that I needed more. Go with the 370EX if you're thinking about 2x 6V6 or equiv.

    Are these resistors discrete components? Do they have color-band markings? Write down the (4 or 5) color values and post. If you're reading 480..500 Ohms, I suspect that you have some other resistors...

    I would expect 100k, but the issue I see is that you've set the scale to 20k. I'd think you're seeing whatever passes for over-range on the meter, set like that.

    To 7 digits, 1 million divided by ( 2 Pi ) is equal to 159155, so there's nothing wrong with your shortcut at all.
