    I've actually lengthened the springs before. The material is not particularly elastic. It's stiff, andnot necessarily "easy" to reshape, but it can be done.

    While I'm not the type to hunker down & panic in my house with my Purell & Bleach wipes, I'm glad they're taking this seriously.

    Good way of putting it, Enzo. I think more recently, we have AIDS,...

    To be fair, one of the best comments I ever got about one of my builds was when one friend said to another that he didn't realize he was even singing through a PA until he asked me to turn up the...

    I've seen similar things happen when I accidentally leave my iron on too high. Doesn't happen on everything, but sometimes... Especially with those block-shaped red plastic speaker jacks with wide...

    Plate resistors should be 100k throughout on 12AX7s, except one 82k on V3. Either way, something seems wonky there. 200k scale on meter, try to get a solid reading. But the jumping around leads me to...

    The only other thing I can think is to check continuity if you haven't already from the tone stack wires to the respective caps. They aren't completely under the board but it doesn't take much to...

    Well, my memory failed me. I had modded mine in the Bass Instrument channel. But this was a recent addition, which I'd done to cut some of the lows out for guitar use since I use the Normal channel...

    My Eico 666 has a "Merit" test, which I can imagine is likely similar to a "Life Test." The instructions explicitly state to use that feature as minimally as possible, and be extra sure that the...

    Chuck,

    Not to be an arse, but shouldn't the fuse go before the switch? I thought the theory is that the fuse should be the first thing juice sees...

    I was more aiming that at Mercury & their insistence that a tranny that's twice as big is The Beeeessstt! Because the feeling in that BM100 thread was that the extra big tranny that got a TROT put in...

    I don't recall who, but a few years ago someone started a thread about the Bassman 100 OT being replaced with a TR OT & it got better. Ensued a long discussion about how "bigger is better for bass,...

    Jey christarak,

    I was aiming tube swapping at 52bill, cuz it was the only thing I didn't see in his "list of things I tried." �� Though, he's a lot more knowledgeable than me, so I would have...

    Not trying to be a smartass here, but this is part of the joy of DIY/kits/clones. I have an aversion to hacking/modding/exploding vintage gear, even the dreaded Silverface Fenders. This way, even if...

    Since the issue is limited to such a small section of circuit, it shouldn't be anything common to both channels. I say "shouldn't" because anything is possible. Try swapping the pot anyway. I've had...
