    There is nothing new under the sun... I've seen plentyof similar things knocking around in vintage Fenders. My Bassman has a piece of black cardboard bent into some wacky shape up by the pilot light....

    Thank you for all the suggestions! I won't say whether I'll go through with my crazy idea or not yet ;) but perhaps a laptop scope is best. My main reason for not going that way is, if I blow up my...

    Never used one because my amps don't have FX loops, but a ton of guys in a FB group I mod have used them. They all seem to rave over them, as the BWST THING TO EVER HAPPEN FOR YOUR HOT ROD DEVILLE!...

    Scope-less Diagnostic ideas...

    Hey All, since I don't have a scope, I was wondering if this would work... I know it's not ideal, but it might help a bit.

    I have an amp that is essentially a clone of a 6G5 Pro Normal channel....

    I chop off plugs that don't say "Switchcraft" right after I gank the jacks that aren't Switchcraft. ;)

    In all seriousness...

    You may have a compatibility issue with your jack & plug. Since so much is made in metic now, there have been reports of very slight fit problems. Parys are spec'd for 1/4",...

    I vote bad connection somewhere. How comfortable are you opening up the amp? Because to me it seems to be frequency dependent. You'd want to have someone playing the frequency steadily or use a...
