There will be a video coming out soon from Carr that features a band with two guitarists playing thru both the Telstar and Merc V. It was shot Friday and it being edited now. You'll be able to hear them both at the same time and see who is playing what, etc.
It's been awhile and nobody took notes, but I know we changed a Mallory cap to a Jupiter, changed the value of a Solen, simplified some ground wire routing, and changed where a couple resistors connect.
I've bought pickups over and over for Teles mostly, but no satisfaction. Finally I beefed up the caps. If a Tele had a .22, then I'd put in a .47. If it had a .47 then I'd put in a .1. It made the pickups sound full and not anemic and tinkly. Finally I'm satisfied withmy Teles.

We've had to cut back on selling replacement tubes, trying to conserve what we have for production. But we get them from TAD and Tungsol mostly, Tube Depot, Tube Store, Antique Electronics Supply, etc.
You can use your Rambler differently by inverting the controls. Turn off bass/mid/treble, crank the volume. Then bring up the tone stack slowly. You'll figure it out from there. Juices the amp and makes you attenuate it with the tone stack.
I'm actually wiring up the chassy for yours today! Things going the way they usually do, that means you'll probably see it in about 2 weeks. Orders went crazy at the turn of the year, probably right when you ordered this. We do appreciate everyone who is waiting and want you to know it will...
