Sound absolutely great and are no longer made.
Used in the Marshall Jimi Hendrix 1982 JH cabs a few years ago (cabs that went with the limited edition Super 100 JH amp).
Compared to "regular" Greenbacks they have a bit less dope and sound a bit fuller, I do not know if they used the same cone or...
100% original, 1777 cones, glue touch-up on the dust caps, made October 19th 1979.
Absolutely sound great, no issue whatsoever, I've had them for years.
Traded PP'd and shipped ConUS for the pair, $120 for each speaker.
In good condition, has been used, it's a cab I made a few years ago and have no use for anymore.
3/4" solid pine, 1/2" birch ply front panel, aged silverface grill cloth, no hardware.
$175 PP'd and shipped ConUS.
I recently acquired this fantastic amp, non top-boost.
After changing the electrolytics (original and way out of spec…) and rectifying some previous cocaine monkey repair work (wrong pot values for the 2 replacements and mega over filtering for the preamp - 50uF x2!!!), it sounds absolutely...
In great condition, works flawlessly and sounds even better.
All original except:
-converted and wired correctly (and safely) to a 3-prong AC cord, polarity switch removed
-all electrolytic caps have been changed 2 years ago
-one replaced signal cap and normal channel bass potentiometer...
'85 Mesa Boogie SOB SimulClass head, 60w, 4x 6L6, 3x 12ax7.
Preamp tube sockets seem bad, some noises and cut-outs when wiggling tubes, I re-tensioned and cleaned them a couple of times already, putting tube shields on seem to help a bit with the spring.
The amp also makes weird noises at...
Vintage & iconic?
The early Boogies surely are, no?
To my mind they were a unique amp at the time and still are.
I never got into them, although some of my friends bought the first ones available in EU in the '70s and got great tones.
I've become Mesa-curious lately, what say you?
I've been on a vintage Guild kick lately, I've always wondered why those guitars are not more popular in the vintage market (and more expensive), and the only explanation I can come up with is that no superstar player has been known playing a Guild as a main instrument.
IMHO the build quality...
As the title says, reconed years ago by Allan at Spiral Reconing, lived in my 2x BFDR's for about 5 years.
Labelled 16ohms, but all JBL speakers were 8ohms, one speaker frames has a weld repair 100% solid, again I used and gigged those for 5 years.
They will be double boxed and packed like...
Stupid question: how can I add a variable high pass filter to a very simple circuit like a speaker line out? As well, can I add a low pass filter?
I have it in a tiny enclosure to take the speaker signal out of an amp to line level to feed a second amp with a looper, or 100% wet signal.
Fantastic guitar, this is an old nitro refin according to the previous owner, done somewhere in the early '70s. It is nicely checked and looks the part.
Typical neck profile of the era, .750" deep at the 1st fret and .900" at the 12th.
Great neck, plays like butter with super low action and no...
This guitar is 100% original except for:
- body refin in black nitro-cellulose lacquer (slight relic to match the neck)
- refret with Jescar EVO 47104 fretwire (very close to Dunlop 6150) & polished bone nut
- a few replaced pearloid fretboard dots
- 5-way switch (I can install a vintage...
I'm in the process of either changing my main rig, or putting together an alternate version.
Simple 2 amps dry/wet set-up, but with a looper (Boomerang).
I am trying to figure how I can have the wet effects (delay & reverb) go into the "wet" amp (full up, no direct signal) while also feeding...
I see him discussed here once in a while, the most underrated living guitar player IMHO.
No flash or apparent virtuosity, but full of style and musicality and complete command of the instrument.
There are not a lot of interviews, I'd love to see a current rig rundown, the variety of tones he...
