Powerful in an in your face sort of way . . .
I have a Sceptre. Although she doesn't give me goose bumps like some of my other vintage tube amps, she sure can stay clean at high volumes . . . The reverb circuit sucks though. What were they thinking with that lame reverb board?
In case you ever need it, there is a link to the schematic for the Sano WR16 here on Larry John McNally's website:
I have a Sano 160R - it might be the best sounding 1x12 vintage amp I have ever owned - right at the top for sure.
Nice find ;)
My Sano 160R is one of THE best sounding vintage tube amps I own and I have several. They rock, pure and simple.
I have the schematic for it too. I have a Weber Ceramic Blue Dog 12 in mine and she runs dead silent (I did a filter cap replacement on mine when I got her.
This is one amp that I...
Out of phase speaker wiring seems to have been a Fender issue quite a bit. I remember reading an old thread about checking the phase of your old Fender amps so I decided to check my 1969 Twin. Lo and behold, it was out of phase.
My choice is a late 1960's Sunn head that runs two KT88's. They are friggin clean to the max due to the linear design. Major clean. They can be had for around $400 in good condition and are very easy to work on.
I was under the impression that accutronics products are made to order based on called out specs. Can't you just have one ordered to your specs from one of these places? that's what I did.
My Suhr Classic T comes in at 6.49 lbs.
One piece swamp ash body
One piece maple neck
SS medium frets
Plank body with 1/8" body edge radius
Tele cup input
Suhr tele neck PU and Broadcaster bridge
Black Bakolite guard
Fat C neck carve
Personally, I think the T style is more verstile that the S style. I use the neck pickup a lot. It's super fat and the notch sounds like the notch, to me. I have a one piece swamp ash body with a one piece maple neck. I chose no body carve and 1/8" radius edges for that typical "plank" look and...
It's all a matter of taste but I own both and the Classic T is the best guitar overall, that I have ever owned. Mine's spec'ed mostly vintage style except for the SS frets and neck carve/radius. I have the fat C and 10-14. I have to force myself to play the other guitars now.
Yes, fix it. You'll hear many renditions of how to do it but I have used a small piece of paper sack and some elmers glue with outstanding results. If it's just puncture hole the glue should not matter. If it were an elongated tear along the flex line of the cone rim I would probably use a more...
I own a 1974 Vibro-Champ. It came with the CTS ceramic speaker which works perfectly but I too thought I would upgrade it. I bought a Weber 8A-125 and it darkened the amp too much for my taste. I put the original speaker back in and like it much, much more. That's not to say I won't try someting...
