    +10

    The good new is that I hear plenty of young artists (likely using mostly digital equipment) making some good music anyway. It's just a new generation with new and different tools. But you...

    THIS!!^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    This has been my argument against digital amps forever. With a digital amp you're not even hearing your guitar (per se') but a vague simulacrum in the EQ and average...

    You'll need a schematic. Since the hiss isn't affected by the volume control, if it IS a noisy opamp it'll be one schematically after the volume control in the signal chain. I remember finding a...

    I had one on the bench where that was one of the complaints. It turned out to be a noisy op amp. Unfortunately the exact part was hard to find and I had to risk purchasing an overseas "equivalent"...

    I don't have a modeling amp, but I think I may have some insight. I believe there's a tendency by both players and builders of less expensive amplifiers with many convenient features to adress...

    And probably any tube plugged into that socket now. Since the tubes were swapped around and the problem stayed with the socket there's a good chance of a conductive path on the board and/or socket...

    If you have good reason to believe in this guy that's an amazing price for Sonic blue with nitro finish over existing or after stripping. A Warmoth body (alder, Sonic blue, nitro) would be about $390...

    Interesting. I wonder what the laws/regs are on using a marketed product with a copyright logo on a manufactured product.?. Seems like it would be a gray area.

    This works. But you have to use the "fine" scotch bright pad. The white one.

    But I think it's the "age to yellow pea green" thing that the OP is wanting. Something the catalyzed finish is never...

    I didn't even know they ever made a fully alphanumeric nixie. Some of the more rare nixie tubes are getting hard to come by and because they're popular for "nerd craft" the rare ones can be expensive.

    This is going to seem like a stupid question. You're not running a signal while testing the bias, are you?

    I like the night light and the key hanger :thumbsup: There are some cool DIY lamps on *oogle images too. I'm going to hold out for a Nixie clock though. Back burner project for sure.

    When I did some work for Dean Markley one of the projects he was considering was a ready made amp offered by, oh let's just say, "an overseas company" that was a spot on copy of the blues junior...

    The master in the schematic is 220k. I could assume that a 250k was used as a "nearest standard value". Or I could ask if we're all certain that the master circuit is just as shown in the schematic...

    Have you ruled out the logo mounting area, the grill cloth around it, etc. It's near the inputs and seems like a likely frapper.

    My thought too. It's not as if he's ever had the chance to crank it into clipping for practice or gigs. If he has then maybe.?. But otherwise it's the same dirt box no matter where you set the volume...

    Isn't the output impedance of the "circuit" the PI output impedance parallel with the 220k bias resistance? And where is the signal "divided" to? A more easily understood voltage divider divides to...

    Agree. And thank you for calling out the elephant in the room. Plenty of Fender amps suffer borderline instability, but that was never the intention. I think it's a consequence of over engineering...

    This is just the simplest post PI master circuit. But why the hell is it implemented at the grids instead of behind the grid stop resistors!?! Any benefit of power tube clipping is omitted in this...
