    Sugarloaf... Anyone else remember this band.

    I hadn't heard this in many years but it was a favorite for many when I was a kid. Amazing playing with a nice jazz vibe. I did not know they wrote and recorded the second song.

    Further adventures in repairing Fender Pro Reverb

    I understand about capacitors holding a charge. I have watched a number of videos indicating the various ways specifically using a "Snuffer Stick." And how to verify using a proper multimeter.

    Biasing '71 Pro Reverb-Simple Question

    Hi All, I am about to replace the rectifier and 6l6's in my Pro Reverb and rebias. I have purchased the VHT Bias meter and the death cap had been removed sometime ago. So I think I can do this without a trip to the ER. The question is do I need to let the amp warm up? Or will the bias change...

    Mid Century Walnut Cases for Modern Equipment?

    Has anyone encountered a source for walnut cases for audio gear like receivers, amplifiers, tuners, but for modern equipment? I am thinking about a Yamaha Integrated amp (701) in Silver and thought it might be nice to have a walnut case so it would match the base of the AR XA turntable I am...

    Any experience with "Listening Bars?" Any in the US?

    I stumbled upon a video about "Listening Bars" in Japan. It was a logical extension of the Japanese interest in vintage audio gear, tubes, vinyl with a level of enthusiasm only matched by my fellow TGP's about all things, well about gear. Does any one have any experience with any of these...

    Amp hiss changes with proximity(?)

    Hi All, I have noticed I can decrease the hiss in the amp when placing my hand within 8" of the volume control on the Reverb channel. It is a specific distance that reduces the hiss. Closer than 8" and it returns to the normal noise floor. Further away than 8" and it returns to the normal...

    I shipped a guitar today and was told by the Fed EX employee that stringed instruments can no longer be insured for more than $1,000. He was the manager and quite knowledgeable, friendly and professional, so I do think he was just passing along info. He said we would have to use an alternative...
