    Speaker change for AC30?

    The Silver / Blue combo isn't just for AC30s or other EL 84 amps. I tried 3 other speaker combinations for a Blackface Bassman and settled on those. I have tried to find better, but cant....

    BF Bassman speaker opinions

    Oh sorry, about that, they are available in 10's too and that's what I was using with my '67 Bassman head until I cut a new baffle. Now I have a Blue 10" and a Silver 12". Good luck in your search.

    50-60hz sine wave speaker break-in: How Loud?

    To the above poster, just a few hours makes a big difference. To the OP, you should her some hum, but don't push them too hard. Just look for the cone to be pulsing in and out, that 's the main thing. It will loosen up the cone, surround and spider.

    Mike Campbell's new amp setup

    IMHO, those guys over at the TQR get just a little too giddy and hype up whatever they feel like writing about.

    looking for Tweed-like mids from '67 Blackface

    Thanks Cameron. Can you elaborate? I am handy with a soldering iron, know how to discharge caps, etc. Is there a layout for this mod in the internet somewhere? thanks

    AC/DC fans, what amp are you using to get your tones?

    I would agree that only in more recent years Malcolm has received his due credit especially from guitar players. I love their live shows and have been seeing them over the years since 1985. They define rawk. However, it is both of them together IMHO that defines the sound.

    Need some schooling; alnico vs. ceramic in tweed

    Please do not judge the tone before breaking them in. It takes a lot of hours at stage volume for this to happen....or You can speed up the process with an iPod. 1.Google "60 htz sound wave". Find a way to download it, get it onto your iPod. 2. Run your iPod into the input of your amp...

    1969 Bassman question

    I Have a '67. I think 3 on the dial is a little early. Is your phase inverter tube (V4) a 12AT7? Often times people will put a 12AX7 in there to boost gain a little. Tried that, didn't like the tone myself.

    Crate V32 Problem

    I love this amp but....it cuts in and out during first 10-15 minutes of playing at stage volume on the clean channel, until it really warms up. At home at low volumes it's fine. I have sprayed cleaner into the pots, retouched the solder joints at the tube sockets, made sure the bolts on the...

    Blues jr Cabinet

    Maybe a little. The speaker has to be pushing air and vibrating that whole cabinet for more of that effect. It's a sympathetic resonance thing going on.

    Blues jr Cabinet

    Yes it could. Moving from plywood or MDF, whatever it is now to dovetailed pine boards will caus the cab to ring differently most likely emphasizing certain mid freqs. Whether or not you like the effect will be your decision. Fender was using pine cabs up until mid to late 60's I think.

    Will a 2x12 w/Greenbacks get close to the magic of 4x12 w/Greenbacks?

    screw it, (don't mean to HiJack), but I 'm gonna try 2x12" Scumback's in a ported cab I think - see how she goes.....

    Will a 2x12 w/Greenbacks get close to the magic of 4x12 w/Greenbacks?

    What about 2 Greenbacks in a vented cab like Port City? I assume you might loose low end "tightness" but would the thump be there? I'm interested in this question too, since I drive a Mustang and gigging with a 4x12 is not feasible.
