Thanks to Mike K. and all of you for your help.
I misordered/fat fingered the wrong value. Entirely my fault, nothing to do with the distributor.
"Measure the values of all the resistors you replaced, trust me!"
Bingo! Grid resistors were 470 M Ohm! Should have been 470 K Ohm. Works much...
pdf64, yes the speakers were my first thought. They are JBL Fenders, btw. I tried the amp with a cabinet loaded with Jensen Neos.
Thanks, Mike. The PI was suspect and on my list to troubleshoot. I'll also measure the resistor values.
I just recapped a Fender 135 watt TR. The amp came to me with a very high noise level at idle. It had recently been retubed with all JJ tubes and...
luv me some G12T-75s.
I find the video presenter annoying.
Well, there was the Germino Masonette. More JTMish(6V6's) than the 1974x(EL84's).
Yes, if you open the chassis you will find all Line 6 PCBs.
This was an attempt by Bogner to enter the low cost end of the market. He partnered with Line 6 and things went downhill from there.
I'm a fan of T-75's.
Best solution is switching out the OT for a Allen T020. Couple that with Jeff's suggestions and you should be good to go. Assuming the amp is...
I've never had a problem with JJ's, whether pre or power tubes. I only buy them from Eurotubes, though.
I don't find them particularly dark or dull.
Yeah, had that been a PJ it would measure quite a bit more than 3 watts. I ran a wattage test on a PJ with the Allen TO20 OT installed. Using the...
I've been using the big box DD for some time now. I keep the drive just barely on and the volume/tone set for the situation/venue.
I've never cared for MDF cabs. I always preferred solid pine, with Baltic birch ply a second choice. Presently, I have four cabs: 2-Baltic birch,...
Weber's 12A125A matches up perfect with a 5E3. Never cared for the Celestion Blue with tweed amps.
How was Fogerty using the two heads?
Replace the pre-amp tubes one at a time starting at V1.
How dare you like something so non TGP approved!
Seriously? That amp must have needed some serious attention. It's a classic.
So, there is a "speaker out"?
