    One bias pot adjusts both tubes. It adjusts current to both tubes evenly. Turn up = both tubes get more current. Turn down = both tubes...

    Depends on the circuit. STOCK 5e3 balls to the wall sounds like garbage. Blocking distortion. Ratty sounding. Flabby loose bass. Stock...

  3. JD0x0 replied to the thread Clean Strat sound possible?.

    What happens when you run the clean volume on '3' instead of '4'? I seriously doubt a 5 watt amp is causing your speaker to distort...

  4. JD0x0 replied to the thread What's your favourite 5E3 mod?.

    Pretty much what I'd do, but I'd probably use 33-22-22 filters, personally. FWIW, Dumble used 33uF across the board for the filters

  5. JD0x0 liked TNO's post in the thread What's your favourite 5E3 mod?.

    I like 32-10-10 for the filters. Beefing up the first filter makes a huge difference in the amp not sounding strangled cranked. Lowering...

  6. JD0x0 replied to the thread why does a semi-hollow sound different when amplified?.

    People seem to forget that a flimsy (semi)hollow top causes strings to vibrate differently than a completely solid guitar. It's not...

  7. JD0x0 liked LeicaBoss's post in the thread why does a semi-hollow sound different when amplified?.

    So, here is a long answer from someone who didn't believe in the "semihollow sound" one bit until I encountered Memphis centerblock...

  8. JD0x0 liked moosie's post in the thread why does a semi-hollow sound different when amplified?.

    A 335 is not chambered. To me that implies a solid body with holes in it. Maybe big holes. A 335 is a thinner pressed laminate body,...

  9. JD0x0 replied to the thread 1965 Gibson GA-15RVT coupling caps recommendation.

    2005 means your filter caps are 12 years old. Depending on what they're replaced with, it could be time again... Also, depending on...

    Impossible. Never happened before. Sorry. :confused: Your issue is likely because you're using a 5 watt amp and either trying to get...

    Did you do FILTER caps yet? That'd cause bass loss and they're the most likely to go bad.

    They can appear to randomly redplate in certain situations. Take a badly laid out PCB board, run a HV trace too close to the bias...

    I'm no engineer but my problem with this bridge is not only the lack of individual saddle height adjustment, but the fact that you've...

  14. JD0x0 replied to the thread What's your favourite 5E3 mod?.

    Not a fan of VVR personally, I think it'd be even LESS useful on a tweed amp. They're a bit better for higher voltage amps that have a...

  15. JD0x0 replied to the thread why does a semi-hollow sound different when amplified?.

    Is this a trick question? Listen to a 335 vs a Les Paul. Everything the same except 335 is semi hollow. I can always pick out a 335...
