Here, I found it.
Said Mr Hogy
"An attenuator with a load setting and a line out. You can also use a load resistor.
I don't want to get into a discussion about attenuators and how safe they are to use. Religious debate is frowned upon on TGP. Instead I'll just tell you what works. For an amp...
Once again I'll ask TGP.
A friend just gave me his old Marshall Powerbrake. It's fully functional and it's OK for what I need - to knock out a few db's when I go out to play, and it gives me a passable tone for practice.
Now, the question. It has a 8 - 16 ohms switch. Will it hurt my amp if I...
Judging from the YouTube clips I've seen, 3rd Power's Hybrid Master technology is really impressive.
Does anybody here know what kind of technology he's using? Is it the same as London Power's power scaling?
Exactly Steppin' Wolfe. There is one video of a Morgan Amp where the guy tries out different tubes. The differences, if there are any really, are very subtle. But I think it's very hard judging gear from what you hear on YouTube clips. The best test, imo, is plugging into an amp and hearing...
Thanks guys. TGP always delivering the goods.
Dr Bob, what I really want is to have an amp that allows me to use different output tubes, and I hope different sounds & feel.
I have heard clips of Komet amps, but none address the different tubes issue.
So, if anyone here has first-hand experience...
Can anybody explain to me, in simple layman terms, how can Komet amps operate with multiple power tubes? Special transformers?
Would it be a feasible mod to an existing amp - say, an old 800?
Also, does anybody here have first-hand experience with this kind of amp?
Forgive my ignorance. One of the two power tubes in my amp (6550's) seems to be 'caving in' - it looks like someone put a finger on it and pushed inwards. Also, it's blowing fuses, and twice, when I removed the back plate of the chassis to check if there was anything burnt/broken I saw...
Could you give more details? What kind of music do yoy play? The volumes you play at? I have an Alessandro Bloodhound which I currently use with a Mesa Thiele 1X12 (EV), but that cab is damn heavy (but not as heavy as the 4X12 I sold :)), and I'm thinking of something lighter but with...
How about some pictures of your cabs? I'm going through a slipped disc phase and can't schlep the big monsters any more. How 'bout some clips? Say, something simple, like a single line riff and one or two chords, clean and dirty?
