Is front panel printed on a separate sheet (plastic or aluminum) or straight on chassis?
1) Somebody must draw front panel art.
Who will do that?
How much will an artist charge?
2) cheapest/fastest for a single one is to laser print it on an adhesive sheet and stick it on sanded and...
Clearly that effects loop switches full effects pedal in-out.
In that case, trails will stop instantly.
Pedal builders sometimes avoid that by switching effect input OFF, but not its output, that´s why upfront it continues as needed.
You should switch *pedal* OFF, not LOOP OFF.
Clearly some hate Plexy type front panels.
Maybe that´s why Jim Marshall stopped using them :rolleyes:
AFAIK B.A.D. bought a large expensive flat bead printer (think a glorified inkjet printer) which can print on most any surface, replacing silkscreening.
They show pedal boxes where graphics...
Many concurring factors for that.
You are comparing an as light as can be 10" speaker, inside a smallish box, driven by a 10W amp, to a 120W beast driving 2 HEAVY 12" speakers in a much larger cabinet.
Less fizz/treble and tons more bass and low mids in Jazz oriented JC120 speakers...
Merits a longwinded answer but the very short one is: it´s a quintessential *solid state* Preamp, all functions, gain, switching, EQ are handled by Op Amps, **clipping is by diodes**, period, only semblance of tubyness and *maybe* some tube clipping can happen in V2c , and even so it´s...
FWIW Eminence IS CTS .
Or used to :)
Of course they later diversified a lot, in the old times everybody tried to be a jensen clone or thereabouts, since it was the established standard "everybody" used.
That for the first half your amp/cab combination sounds clean and smooth shows there is not damage.
Amps do not self heal.
Mesa is not the Holy Grail to begin with.
There´s degrees of "wrong", with a lot of "opinion" thrown in to spice things up.
Besides perfect match which is the trivial...
Well, if you plan to replace all 4, you don´t have a cab, you have an empty wooden box, don´t you?
Your choice, but if your problem is
you will probably *increase* harshness.
Those bland sounding speakers , as I mentioned above, are often used to tame harsh SS amps.
Or simply because they are...
Given the not so original name, I´m quite sure it´s an "evolution" of their G12E-50 speaker , same speaker (same frame and magnet so "same engine") with a somewhat improved voice coil.
Which in due time were the evolution of G12L-35 .
Not bad , definitely usable, pales only besides its mighty...
Generic 70´s SS Japanese amp, sold under many shop brands, such as Marlboro.
Can do as a living room/garage practice amp, as a pedal playback amp.
Think *early* Crate and similar, earliest simplest Peavey, etc.
In a nutshell:
* if both amps are ON, they fight to death for control.
Even if one does not receive signal, it still DOES have one voltage it will try to keep: 0V (hint: it will behave like the shortest short in the World, worse than a piece of wire).
* if one is off, it is still...
Or an electrical analogy would be to connect 120V and 240V wiring to the same single outlet, both at the same time, "for convenience of having 120V and 240V amplifiers usable there" the problem being that "one FIGHTS the other for control", each one wrecking the other in the process.
All knobs on 10, maybe "Normal" channel to 5 or 6 tops if bridged to avoid excess (muddy) Bass.
What´s the point of getting a Plexi, then running it clean (abomination) and get all dirt from pedals?
If so, plug into a Peavey Bandit or something and call it a day.
Just do the Geometry :) ... or in this case put 3 or 4 8" speakers on a piece of paper and pencil outlines, then check whether they fit in your oversized 12" cab or not.
IF you haven´t yet built it, adjust plans to suit.
If no speakers currently available, cut 3 or 4 cardboard disks to...
FWIW I manufacture my own speakers, from 4" to 18" and of course including 8"
I make them heavier than usually available in the market, precisely so guys are motivated to replace Factory fitted ones with my own.
In 2001-2002 we suffered a HEAVY economic turmoil, deeper...
You must strongly avoid **ANY** possibility of connecting Amp 1 output to Amp 2 output, ever.
Which is almost guaranteed connecting all those wires to speaker terminals.
Having 1 amp OFF at a time saves you NOTHING, working amp can easily destroy nonworking/OFF amp in parallel.
The square frames plus the obvious Peavey cabinet they are in practically confirms they ARE Scorpions.
Killer speakers, a mini EV in their own right : cast frames, exponential cones, tight machined magnets, edgewound aluminum voice coils.
People love or hate thgem, because , like EVs, they are...
