    Well, like I said, I have no clue on what it'd take, as I've never thought about it, and I'm not sure how much I could contribute to such a project/thread, but it sure seems like a great idea for a...
  2. Gotta say those are two things I didn't think of....

    Gotta say those are two things I didn't think of. Got a tube test. Don't have a dedicated tube matcher, however I'm clueless on how one would make a diy tube matcher.
  3. Well, every one who has posted is pretty much on...

    Well, every one who has posted is pretty much on the same page I am. Great input and appreciated. However, I still can't get myself to sacrifice a chassis for this transformer. With that I like to...

    A Fender Bassmen with tremolo and reverb - I would like to use up my 6L6wxt+ tubes - sounds like cool project - The Bass-O-Trem-O-Verb ;)

    So, everyone is pretty much on the same pages I am on....
  5. I was wanting to use up the 6L6's. I'll have to...

    I was wanting to use up the 6L6's. I'll have to check into again. I could always tweak the filament voltage down some if it was a bit high when all was said and done.
  6. Actually that is what the tranny is and I was...

    Actually that is what the tranny is and I was actually thinking about going with 4 el84's to eat up some of the filament current available.
  7. Gotta a power transformer, can't seem to decided what to do with it - any thoughts ???

    So, I've got a power transformer I picked up a while ago that has been sitting and collecting dust. Figured I'd build something around it, but I can't really seem to decide just what I want to to...

    I asked at tedweber.com and got the following response:

    "well the 5F1 just had one knob, which was also the power switch.

    the 5F2 (princeton) had a volume and tone, and they were linear"
  9. Fender 5f2 (not 5f2a) tone and volume pots - linear and/or audio?

    Does anyone happen to know if the original Fender 5f2 (not 5f2a) uses linear and/or audio pots on the 250K tone and/or 1M volume pots ?

    I wasn't aware the Baxandall tone stacks specifically used linear pots, but if they do then I guess it'd be the "James" tone stack I mean :D
    I've never really paid much attention to either until...

    I contacted Alpha about their log/audio taper, but still haven't heard back. If they get hold of me I'll pass on what they say. In the mean time, is there anyone using the the standard log pots from...

    I've started playing around with the Duncan Tone Stack Calculator and understand the Log-A and Log-B difference as it pertains to the software. What I'm having an issue with is finding out what the...

    Unfortunately I don't have any information on the original piezo reverb tank manufacturer, etc. I can say the replacement reverb circuit mod in this thread worked worked well.

    A high voltage DC shock is a very good reason not to do it...
    I didn't even think about that to be honest.
    Kind of solves that curious wonder moment pretty quick - lol...
  15. Run indicator / power-light off of rectifier tube 5vac ?

    Is there any reason why the indicator/power-light can't or shouldn't be run off of the 5vac rectifier tube filament juice?
    I searched a bit on the web and couldn't really find any info on it, so I...

    Thanks Enzo, I here ya and agree. Just wondering if it can be done, thought it might be cool to have a switch for warp speed range, and of course there's the 'hmmm, I've never done/seen that thing -...
  17. Thanks for the info Enzo. I found a nice slow...

    Thanks for the info Enzo. I found a nice slow range, but of course that slows the faster end of the range too. I'm thinking about adding a two position switch go from a slower range to a faster...
  18. 6V6 Push Pull, Cathodyne Phase Inverter, 1/2 12ax7 Temolo - bias/voltage swing?

    I have a 6V6 push pull guitar amp, cathode biased, cathodyne phase inverter with second half of 12ax7 used for tremolo. What I'm wondering is there a ball park bias swing, based on this amp, that any...

    Thanks for the info and sharing The PSUD II software. I've been to his site a few times and never saw it; if I did it didn't click.

    Edit 1 Starts:
    I ended up using a 1.5K cathode resistor and a...

    Thanks for the info. The only thing you've mentioned I wasn't originally doing is calculating current across both the cathode resistor and the plate resistor and then comparing them. Actually, I've...

    Thanks for the reminder to double check. Not this time around, but I've done been there done that and can attest a missing grid leak will mess with things ;)

    No, not theoretical.

    I was trying to do it install the plate load resistors first (and of course that means choosing a cathode resistor too so the tube is set up some what) and take the supply...

    Ok, this may come across as a dumb question, but being I am trying to use load lines to set the bias (something I've never really done) of my 12AX7 tube I need to ask a question to insure that I am...

    I'm still here, been checking the thread on and off. I'm just trying to chew on things for a bit to see if I can't upgrade my understanding and knowledge on the subject some. Still going thru the one...

    Great little amp. I actually got one with the cab for 50 bucks one and like an idiot I turned around and sold it for 150 bucks. Anyways. Ya, Epiphone valve Jr, cool amp. But, this particular amp is a...

    Loads of info in there Chuck H, I will have to re-read it a couple times for sure. I kind of got side tracked working on another amp beefing up the tremolo a bit. But, back to busting gain stages....
  28. OK, it's looking like what I am running into here...

    OK, it's looking like what I am running into here is a lack of understanding/experience in preamp tube biasing and manipulating gain stages.
    So, this is where I am going to spend some time.

    I...
