    When I worked at a car dealer they taught us that for every positive review or word of mouth good reference, there will be 10 negative. People who don't have a reason to complain don't say anything....

    If you think F&T are big, check Sprague Atoms...

    There is no electronic reasonnot to use them; just might have to get creative with the mounting on occasion.

    Yup. I've heard some people with hearing issues say the same - hearing loud from a distance is better for you than hearing "sort-of loud" pumped straight in. Also, with hearing loss, is it possible...

    The plate dissipation is 25W. What the sheet means by that is that the total of plate AND screen dissipation shouldn't exceed 28W total. So any combination where Plate <25W, Screen <6W, AND...

    Ford makes a grease for use on both brake parts (caliper slides) AND ignition wires. It's clear & cones in a toothpaste-like tube. Pretty thick, and can go on thin. I wouldn't hesitate to use it if I...

    Or in a more liky for us scenario, we have to pull the tubes with the amp powered up for certain tests...

    Anyway, that's the circumstance <I> aim for when picking cap voltages.

    I would like to add,
    I play my 67 Mustang Bass through either a 67 Bassman or 74 Bassman 100 (AB165 preamp mod) & a 68 2x15 w. real speakers. People say all the time they can tell all the notes,...
