    I have a Nuwah fuzz/wha pedal by ROSAC from way back. This thread makes me want to hook it up and fuzz out. Like this one.......

  2. Wally replied to the thread 5f2a low volume, different plate voltages V1a vs V1b.

    Hello, Jon....no apologies necessary. As noted earlier, the plate voltage and the cathode voltage are related to each other. That high...

    Ime, not all angle coils fail to push a device, be it a fuzz or an amp, into fully blossomed distortion. P-90’s are meatier than a...

    Armchair quarterback observation... a complete voltage chart would have pinpointed this particular problem.

  7. Wally liked D'tar's post in the thread 5f2a low volume, different plate voltages V1a vs V1b.

    +1 with Dan on your cathode connection. Easiest way to confirm,IMO, is to disconnect the nfb tap from the circuit then measure v1p8 to...

  8. Wally liked dan40's post in the thread 5f2a low volume, different plate voltages V1a vs V1b.

    A really bad v1 tube could cause a difference in plate voltage readings but yours has quite a bit of difference. Another thing to check...

    OFOTCN is one of those rare books where it’s a toss-up as whether the book or the movie is better because they’re both so good. Thanks...

  11. Wally liked Paul G.'s post in the thread How do I remove an OT tap?.

    I never cut them, you never know. Heat shrink tubing over the end, coil 'em up and use a cable tie to keep it (them) out of the way.

  13. Wally liked 8barlouie's post in the thread Left my DRRI on standby for 4 hours by mistake.

    Thanks for the clarification. Just for the record, I don’t use the standby on my amp. If I’m switching guitars, I just tap my tuner...

    The OP’s amp was no left ‘on’ for an extended period. It was left in standby.
