Can you explain, give an example?
Ok, This'll be my last post on the subject. Then we'll have to agree to disagree:calm: The situation at my house is about the same as yours. I've been at my job almost 40 years.(printing press...
Okay, I know I'm in the minority here, but here is an excerpt from a Cato Institute analysis (yes I know about the Koch brothers)
An examination of the past 30 years of U.S. economic performance...
Ok, good to go then. Thanks.
It's just a little smaller than the one in my amp built from an old recorder. That one sounds great, but it's more like a Champ. I was hoping to build something a bit like a Deluxe.
Still worried about the OT. It's very small physically. The primary winding measures 517 ohms and the secondary .5 ohms. Here is a picture of it with a nickel laying on top.
Ok I looked them all up, You are absolutely right, (you knew that:thumbsup:) It's getting late for me (5:00am wake up) I'll have to revisit this in a couple of days.
Ok now I'm confused. I thought the issue was having to few heater filaments, causing the filament voltage to be in excess of 6.3v:confused:
So would I be wrong to think that the heater load from 6, 6v tubes would be equal to 3, 12v tubes? I realise that we run them at 6v, but there are two heaters ea. right?
What about a 6x4 My Champ-ish home made amp uses a 6x4 rectifier, and I have spares. How difficult is it to implement dual rectifiers, switchable?
Thanks Nosaj. I had heard of that, so I was going to change the rectifier from the start. Then I noticed the relatively low voltage from the PT and decided on SS recto. I'll make sure the...
Thanks Chuck. Yes, I was planing on building a SS rectifier.
The plan is to use just the transformers, not the speaker, chassis or any of the old circuit. I thought I'd start with a 5E3 deluxe-ish circuit, then tweak if needed. I guess now I need to figure out...
Ok, and the speaker should be not too far off, impedance wise, right?
well sure, but I'm not just plugging a guitar signal into the radio. About all that would be the same is 2 6v6's and cathode bias.
I've got this old radio. I was thinking I would use the transformers in a guitar amp build. I've built a couple of small amps, but I didn't really design them, and there is so much that I don't know....
On second thought, I'm not sure about that. I'm out of town now, but when I'm home next week I'll check it out and report back.
Yep That about sums it up. They do clunk a bit at the transition point. Lenny would be difficult, and you might hear the clunk if your pups were too micro phonic. you will still go a bit out of tune...
Not the tuners, the trem stabilizer. It makes the guitar feel and sound more like a fixed bridge, while still allowing you to pull up on the bar.
I saved that page to read later. Looks like lots of good info. I like graduated locking tuners on a strat. They keep wraps to a min. and eliminate string trees. I also like trem stabilizers. For me...
I find that lowered expectations helps alot:D
I downloaded linux mint 19.1 last week for my wife's win 10 laptop. She's not looking for a Chromebook any more:thumbsup:
We get most of our TV over the internet. Last summer we had a lot of...
I guess mine's pretty good.
Thanks Juan. That's what I was thinking, I didn't know they were that old though. I bought them new, but they were the floor models.
Right, that's why I didn't ask an "audiophile":confused:
They should look like this
I'm pretty sure there are a couple of e caps in there.
