    65 London 112 picking up radio signal

    Happy weekend TGPer's. My 65 London 112 has been picking up radio stations lately. I assumed it was a microphonic EF86 but I just did the tapping run down, and all of the tubes are fine. I've done a bunch of searches on this and it seems like it COULD be one of many things, but since the 65...

    New York based companies?

    Good evening! I have a random question and I'm not quite sure if this is the right part of TGP to post it or not. I'm curious what gear companies are based in the NYC area. I know that Aguilar is in Manhattan, and Sadowsky is in Long Island City, but what else is based in the area? Guitars...

    Help with my 65 London 212

    Good afternoon! Last night I noticed something a little troubling with my London, however I don't know nearly enough about amps to self diagnose and being in NYC and not having a car, it is very hard to take it in to have someone look at it. I play out of the "marshall" side 99% of the time...

    Boost Pedal after Timmy? Katana?

    Howdy, My gear: Danocaster tele with Humbucker in the neck going into a 65 London 1x12 or Carr Rambler (usually the 65). I have a lot of pedals, but lately I have been using just guitar into amp for most stuff, and using my Timmy pedal for light dirt. For solos I need something that can take...

    Pickups for SG 61 RI

    I am sure there are tons of posts on this already, however it will not let me search for the term SG since it is too short. My buddy has a 61 RI SG and is considering changing the pickups to something with a little more clarity and chime when clean, but that can still rock when cranked. What...

    Another Blackface Champ question

    I have been posting a couple questions regarding champs lately, so I apologize if this is overkill. I am about to look at a 66 Champ tonight, where everything is original except for the grill cloth. Guy wants $400 for it, and I am going to need a 3 prong cord added, and not sure about the caps...

    Help with my 65 London 1x12

    Hello! I am sure if I spend a while searching the forum I could find an answer to this, because I am guessing it is tube amp 101, but I don't really have the time and was hoping for some quick help. My 65 Amps London 112 has been making a weird noise for the last week or so. When I play, and...

    Deep Blue Delay and Original Ibanez AD-9 - overkill?

    I have an original Ibanez AD9 that I love to add some ambiance to solos and what is wonderfully warm. I had a VM Super Delay, but just sold it because it was just too many options for me, realized I need something simpler. The Deep Blue Delay looks awesome, but is combining that with...

    Death By Audio Interstellar Overdriver withTimmy and Fuzzhead?

    So, right now the 2 OD/fuzz pedals on my board that are not going anywhere are my Timmy and a Keeley Fuzzhead. The Timmy is amazing, and the fuzz gives me my real heavy sounds, and also boosts the Timmy for cutting solos. I am looking for one more OD that I can use as a warm OD that is heavier...

    Boost for 65 Amps London

    I love my 65 London 112. I play a G0 LP and a 50th anniversary Strat though it. I have a bunch of OD pedals, but I am looking for a nice boost pedal to push the amp, because I like the amps natural tones more than any of my OD pedals. For recording, it was a dream because I could crank it as...

    9.5 vs 10 radius

    I am figuring out all of the specs I want on a USACG neck. I am pretty set on the 9.5 radius, as all strats I have every owned had this, and Ive enjoyed it. I am tempted by the 10 inch radius it a noticeable difference?
