part of the issue with stock 5e3 voltage is that in 1955 wall outlets put out about 100-110 VAC. Now you get between 118-125 vac. Which is about...
I will say the the legend is better than some of the jensen reissues, but does not compare to the weber 12a125 or the jensen p12n in terms of...
Get a bigass step bit and make em fit.
I like the big belton mylex tube socket personally.
Oh and make your own face plate. No need to put the...
you should try a weber 12a125a or a jensen p12n.
The eminence legend is the wrong speaker for that amp and it weighs a ton too.
I am sure if you got the amp from ceriatone you would not be disapointed.
Probably if you paid the high victoria prices you would have have buyers...
I don't like the R's at all, avoid them.
The q's are just okay.
The n's are really nice.
22k but at least you get free shipping.
I got a roll of fancy silver solder.
I didn't like using it much. It seems like it requires more heat to get it flowing vs the regular stuff.
you should try switching the brown and blue wires.
What brand did you get?
With Mercury's 5e5 the blue wire would go on the power tube closer to...
I bet 50 years ago someone once said, "I wonder what a solid state amp would sound like?"
I remember those old drug store tube testers.
I bought one.
It doesn't seem very reliable. About every tube I test says its good, but when you try...
I got some stuff from him a while back, nice guy.
I hope he is okay.
That is a good deal. My only issues with that kit is, they give you TAD filter caps and a ground switch instead of a standby switch.
in the silver face years things got a lot more sloppy. I think the change over to the plastic stranded wire might have been part of it. But I bet...
There are different tweed amp models. Some break up sooner than others. The pro and super models much later than deluxe. Twin and Bassman even later.
It got relic'd by accident. It wasn't supposed to be that way. Kind of a long story though.
maybe bigger bias cap.
You should have someone replace out the power transformer for you with one that is made for your voltage. Then you can also use the 3 prong cord.
Have you looked in the manufacturers emporium?
Search for 1974x
Free advertising I guess.
Many folks I talk to already know the limitations of youtube/camcorders.
Best thing to do is start out simple. If you try and build a more complicated circuit for your first amp you will likely have much more...
73 is not a bad year for Silver Faces. I have seen the later 70's silver face amps have a lot more goofey wiring tactics than the earlier ones....
Very nice, but whats with the $25 speaker?
The only cabs I use are mojo.
Never had any trouble with them.
You could, but alot depends on your plate voltage. 6v6's max operating voltage is lower than what a normal 6l6 amp is running.
So if you could get...
