    The Pete Cornish Thread Mark VI

    I just sold My SS-3/G-2 Duplex a couple weeks ago. I've had it for maybe 7 years. I started using the SS-3 less and less. I loved the G-2...and with the right amp the SS-3 is very good, just really amp picky. After doing some research, I decided to replace the G-2 with a Buffalo FX Evolution...

    preamp topology- will this work?

    I'm starting with a 18wattish PI/power amp. What I'm looking to do is have a single input, feeding a 12ax7 and a EF86 (internal grid link) then run the two tubes into separate volume controls and a single tone. The goal is to be able to mix the two preamps via volume controls. Would a 5E3...

    bJFe model D

    I guess so, not real versed on Dumble tones. Listened to SRV, Mayer..has that tone. Bjorn mentions David Lindley's tone as a reference he used. What kind of Dumble did he use? Just looked it up. He used a Steel Sting Singer, so I guess that is the sound of the Model D.

    Getting 9-10v off the cathodes to use to power a Germ pre

    I wanna add basically a treble boost pedal into the front end of my amp. Right in between the input and the 1st 12ax7. My big issue was how to power it. I was advised that taking the voltage off the cathode bias, which in my case is 10v. Should be just about right. I was also told I may need to...

    vintage mxr line driver/ noise gate question

    Will this pedal take 12v or 18v..it seems to dull the sound when in line instead of drive it. The line driver is supposed to be always on. Any good mods? Pete Cornish told me that the vintage Line Driver is excellent.. but i don't hear it.Maybe mine is a lemon?

    help with boss pedal issue CS-2

    My Boss CS-2 has a slight lag when you turn it on. Almost seems to cut the signal for just a slight amount of time before it kicks in. Any suggestions?

    vintage MXR Noise Gate Line driver questions

    What are the functions of this pedal besides the noise gate feature. When bypassed, is there a buffer always on hence line driver or is the line driver function just the parallel XLR jack on the output? Thanks!

    vintage MXR Line Driver/noise gate questions

    I can buy a old Noise Gate/Line Driver from a buddy. If I did, I would use it at the end of my chain with the threshold up as a mute. My question is about the line driver part of the pedal. Does the buffer sound any good? Thanks!

    The Pete Cornish Thread Mk. III

    I'm finding that its less about the headroom and more about the tone platform. I've found the G2 and SS-3 do not like bright caps on the amps volume control or higher presence settings..they need a robust midrange to not sound mid cut, volume helps. I have had great luck with lower watt amps and...

    Traynor Bassmaster questions

    I did raise them to 470k and paralleled a 31k across the 3.3M. Sounds fuller and punchier. Nice. Got a couple more things. The 68k resistors from the bias...the normal value of these are more like 220k..does this only effect the bias? Should these be raised then re-biased? I put a bias pot in...
