    Effect of a MXR Wylde OD on an AC30

    Your Ac30 will never do metal.. Period! I have used the zakk OD with a Ac30 and it was great tone, as long as it was cranked to unrealistic playing levels. The Ac30 is a fantastic amp. Your just takin a knife to gun fight for metal tones. I ended up selling the 30 and got a Orange rocker 30 head...

    Ever mix a Jensen and a Celestion?

    I have used the MOD 70 and it is a great speaker.

    Amp volume fluctuating

    I had a similar problem with a Orange Rocker 30. Changed the power tubes and fixed the problem. Not saying its your issue,, but like others have mentioned,, its a good place to start and it could probably use a fresh set anyways. If its not the issue then you got a set on standby and haven't...

    /13 LDW 17-39 re-tube question

    They said JJ/Tesla on the bottom of the tube , but were re-branded "ARS"? I am gonna get a bias meeter. What do you think of the bias king?

    /13 LDW 17-39 re-tube question

    I installed the tubes tonight. Seems to be working just fine. The crackling problems are gone. I cant stand the crappy stickers GT puts on the tubes instead of paint now. The things smell like pooh when burning in. I did change all the preamp tubes to EH 12ax7. It made the OD smoother and less...

    swapping Super Reverb output tranny

    This is not a technical solution but a suggestion,,,, You might be playing the wrong amp for you. I had a Super that was awesome tonally. But the issues were the same. I finally sold it and got another amp that fit the description of what I wanted, not heavily modify and devalue some thing to...

    /13 LDW 17-39 re-tube question

    I took the amp apart tonight and it appears to be exactly what you said. It is class A cathode bias in half power mode, and fixed bias in AB1 mode. I was pretty shocked to see how simple the circut looked. It is very clean and extremly well built. I'm gonna go ahead and get the GT tubes and see...

    /13 LDW 17-39 re-tube question

    I emailed them today. I will call tomorrow if I dont just take it apart tonight to see for myself. I wanna re-tube it obviously,I know this isnt propper, but if I get the same bell curve number 4 GT tubes should I be okay without a rebias until I get it set properly? I know the MA value is...

    /13 LDW 17-39 re-tube question

    Thats what I thought as well,, but there is no a/ab1 selection just full/half power. Leads me to belive that its fixed not cathode. I dont really want to take it apart to see but it looks like I'm gonna have to. I was hoping somebody knew for sure.

    Looks like there's a new Divided By 13 model

    You guessed it!!!!! For some reason there is attitude towards TGP on that site.

    toxic wall power

    Yes this happens to me at my house on certain outlets. Get a Power conditioner. Cost a fraction of your amp.

    Looks like there's a new Divided By 13 model

    I asked a question about /13 on another forum ,, and was rudely told TGP is where I should be asking!!!!! So I bought the LDW 17/39 anyways and love my expensive, cork sniffing amp:beer

    /13 LDW 17-39 re-tube question

    Does anyone know if these amps are fixed or cathode bias ? I am guessing fixed.

    Divided by 13 LDW 17/39

    I just got my LDW this week and it can be dialed in for viscious OD tone. I am using a oversized 2x12 cab w/ a et-65 and V-30 mix. I am doing away with my OD pedals and using a ac-30 for clean w/ a A/B/Y box. I sold my Orange rocker 30 and a Super Reverb to buy this amp, and I'm not in the least...

    Wich /13 amp am I looking for?

    I'm using a boss ds-1 that I have made a few changes to. Brown sound mod and OP chip, then I made a clean linear gain board w/ another jrc4558 chip and placed it in "stereo" inside the pedal. Kinda bored in the garage w/ a soldering iron stuff... Anyhow. I dont like the sound too much with this...
