    Vintage Jensen P12-N

    Take a look at this chart: Now can someone please tell me if this was the actual wattage of this speaker??? They put two of these in a Fender high power Twin??? I've heard from other reliable sources that vintage Jensens were 20 watts, 25 watts, and 30 watts. Did the speaker originally start...

    Is the Fender Custom Shop open?

    Just curious. Are they building anything or do the state laws regarding COVID-19 prevent manufacturing?

    Please compare and contrast the differences between the two ... especially for those folks who have played through both. Preferences?

    Made in the U.S.A. vs Assembled in the U.S.A

    What exactly is the difference? Forgive me if this has been covered before but when I look on Fender's website it says all their custom amps are assembled in the U.S.A.

    Effects Loop: Series or Parallel?

    Forgive me for my lack of knowledge with this one. If your amp has an effects loop, how do you know if it's series or parallel?

    Expression Pedal?

    Forgive my ignorance but could someone please explain to me what this is? Is this a fancier way of saying a volume pedal?

    Troubling shooting ... possible tube rattling

    When I play through my Fender Vibro-King, I only get tube rattle when the reverb is engaged, where dwell, mix, and tone are on 7. Without reverb ... no tube rattle. Maybe a stupid question but given that the reverb is driven by a 6V6, could that particular tube be the culprit?

    Wow ... Fender Vibro-King Head!!!

    I never knew this existed. Not officially made so must have been a custom order. So cool I can't believe it. Fast forward to 12:30 in the video:

    Fender Vibro-King Sweet Delicious

    I recently received the Fender Vibro-King 20th Anniversary Edition (pine/brown). I love this amp tremendously. But the coolest thing is after about 10 minutes of playing, when the tubes have had time to really heat up, the amp emits this sweet chocolate/caramel smell. I'm totally not kidding...

    Fender Vibro-King Ohms Question

    If you were to use a THD Hot Plate with the VK, would you use the 2 ohm or 2.7 ohm version? In the Fender manual, the speaker rating is 2.6, but the output is rated as 2 ohms. Not sure what to do. I would guess that it should be 2.6, not 2 as there are three speakers (each 8 ohms) wired in...

    Amp trouble shooting

    If anyone could help ... I have no idea if I have a tube problem or speaker problem. My amp sounds great. No loss of power or articulation. But when I play, I get this crackling sound, but it's in the background. It's not a loud crackling sound, but it's noticeable. When I don't play, however...

    Question about on/off and standby switches on new Fender amps

    In this video, what is up with these switches? They look pretty weird. New cosmetic design or are those plastic coverings?

    Fender Jazz Bass Buzz question

    Forgive my ignorance. When both volume knobs are on full, my bass buzzes when I take my fingers off the strings. But when only one volume knob is on full and the other is turned all the way down, I do not have this problem. Does this make sense?

    Overtones and undertones

    What do these terms mean? Are these inherently bad things? I read that Carl Kaye used a bass mute (felt, tape) to get rid of these.

    65 Amps?

    Are they still in business? I ask because their website looks really wrong.

    Lefty Bass Score

    One of the biggest mistakes of my life was selling my mapleglo Rickenbacker 4001V63 seven years ago to purchase other gear. I had a J-Bass at the time so I didn't really feel the loss. But I've recently been having SERIOUS GAS pains to get that bass back. I surfed the net and came across a used...

    Question about Fender Custom shop P-Bass pickup

    Stupid speaker pairing question: Be gentle

    Is pairing a 90 watt speaker (Celestion Alnico Cream) with a 50 watt Eminence EJ1250 Alnico a dumb thing to do for a 2x12?

    Zvex Box of Metal ... Anyone?

    I just got this pedal a little over a week ago. I'm totally addicted! First off, I'm primarily a guitar and cable straight into the amp type of guy. The only pedals I sometimes bring out are an analog delay and compressor. The Zvex Box of Metal is glorious. Funny thing is, I'm totally not a...

    Question about matching a head to a cab

    I'm very interested in the Dr. Z M12, which is rated at 12 watts. I already have a 2x12 cab (100 watts) and have no interest in purchasing a new cab. Would this head be poorly matched to my 100 watt cab? Will it seem sterile?
