    When I got the amp it had six Quam speakers (pictured below) that were all falling apart. I replaced them with six vintage CTS alnicos that came out of another Super Six.

    Old Casio keyboards from the 80s and early 90s are great for bending, as well as Speak and Spells and Speak and Maths. I circuit bent a few furbies, but it helps to have the old original models.

    Yes, screen resistors is what I meant, thanks! That is a good call on the 1-ohm resistors for easier testing. I ended up doing that on the last Super Six I worked on and it made life a lot easier.
