    Love it! I've contemplated a way to get controllable compression (of a desirable nature hopefully) out of an overall design without the need to build a "compressor" into the circuit. Since you seem...

    It's possible that the bias pot is wired as a variable resistor and is the last load on the bias supply voltage division and that whoever wired the circuit used the center lug as ground. Is the bias...

    Wow! That's as simple as it gets, huh! It's using grid leak bias for stage one and no cathode bypass on stage two, but still, not much loss with the tone control and basically a shit ton of drive to...

    I really do like the compact footprint on the TDS1002. I've never had a digital scope, but it seems to be the way a lot of professionals here are moving. And I can understand that. Old scopes are...

    Perhaps there were properties other than "sag" that were giving you the favorable results you're after then. Because the situation is very much as Helmholtz said. You may be chasing the wrong...

    Once again Helmholtz in onto the real problem. It's a class A, single ended output. It's the nature of the design to NOT sag. No amount of sag resistors or tube rectification can change the fact that...

    I got mine (BK 2522A) off *bay in the original box and with the original probes and manual. It was carefully used and said to have been calibrated, but that claim is hard to substantiate. The...

    I just want to note here that Justin "discovered" a technique that was actually used by a major amp manufacturer. Mesa! Mesa had an amp model (I can't remember which though) that had an unterminated...

    It looks like that in one of the shots. Furthermore, it's hard to tell otherwise in all but one of the other shots. But I don't think so.

    Correct.

    No guarantees how it will work out though. I can't know what sort of changes may have been made to the amp. No risk of damage to anything.

    And that result is consistent with how amateur knife makers (of which I am one) test for hardness in heat treated blades. You can buy kits of small files of varying hardness. The file that's actually...

    My strat is made of Warmoth parts that are supposed to be tolerance matched to the Fender specs. So it surprised me when I had the problem with the strings being too close to the edges.

    I "think" I may have given that bridge to someone that was building a guitar about ten years ago. Otherwise it's in a box under other boxes in a closet but I'm not even sure about that. In other...

    Ok!!! Well, somebody's been in there eh?

    The orientation of the reverb transformer looks to be 90 different from what I'm use to in earlier amps. That threw me off for a second. I think those...

    It seems I may have tried them already then. And I recall being vexed by the width of other saddles, but not for the same reasons as you I think. I have an American Standard size strat and I'm using...

    Of course. And I'm not either. I'm just saying I wanted to try them for myself.

    In fact, in my search I did see some brass saddles that are machined into the same profile as the stamped and bent...

    Ok. The question now is *Why not?*

    Because it should. According to the schematic it should be tied to pin 3 of that same socket and then to a 25uf cap parallel with an 820r resistor on the board...

    Or surgical tubing that you could easily cut for yourself. Which also has the advantage of no electrical interaction and damping that mitigates microphony.

    I don't take "gear page" type discussions too seriously. Misconceptions and low tech interpretations abound. And terms like "more brittle" and "low end punch" are entirely subjective and undefined....

    No need to remove the tank yet. It could be that whatever is causing the low volume is also causing a lack of drive to the reverb. And anyway, the tank has nothing to do with the channels dry signal...

    Well it may be. The Floyd also uses a block, but as I recall the block doesn't have as much mass as the vintage Fender type. On that note, not all vintage "style" bridges have the heavy block either....
