Welcome to tube amps!
I’d look for a used attenuator. I really like THD’s hot plate.
Second, get a small 1x10 cab with an inefficient speaker....
Parkway is great! Funny to see another local on here!
Have you considered the nitro finished classic 50’s neck? I got mine from Parkway for $250ish.
It’s chunky, good profile, and holds up to...
Evaporust should take care of the original bridge. Stuff works wonders
The OP asked for photos, I provided...
1999 ‘57 reissue. 1 piece neck, flamed throughout. First full year of avri vs usri, pretty on point specs wise. They only did...
Should get you in the right direction
Not just custom shop. The avri gets some tasty wood too!
Does the amp have a spot for a tube rectifier like the original bassman reissue?
If anyone is curious about the sound. It breaks up pretty quick,...
Looking forward to getting a chance to record this!
Played it a bit more tonight with my R8 loaded with Lollar Imperials. It rips tater chip. The tremolo is worlds better and the reverb is no longer...
It’s back! Sounds great. Was actually interesting at the shop, he had just gotten in another mid 70’s deluxe reverb. He hadn’t dived into it yet,...
Thanks! It’s a deluxe though, 12” speaker
You can see the tube rectifier socket next to the PT.
I’m curious if this was a kit, or where everything was gathered from.
Is it Saturday afternoon yet? Can’t wait to try it out.
Thoughts on the original speaker? I’m always cautious and worried playing a speaker that...
I tried a blackface’d 70’s vibrolux, it had two of the legends in. Made that amp super thin and bright. I was bummed because I was looking for a...
Probably pull the legend myself.
Curious, what vintage amp did you part with over the vvri?
I regret not buying one of these, but it was cosmetically trashed and priced too high for my taste.
It’s done! I just have to pick it up. Decided to switch the 6v6s for a known good, anos set of sylvanias. Also one slightly microphonic preamp...
Yeah, I was really surprised to see that too. The bias cap dates to 74.
A tight crop on the bias adjustment pot looks like the solder covers the eia code, but leaves a date code of 29th week of 76 visible.
Amp is at my tech right now, so I can’t remember the exact serial number, and he didn’t photograph pot codes for me. Serial number was...
Amp is on the bench! It’s never been serviced and several caps are starting to leak. I also thought the wiring looks pretty tidy, I know the cbs...
1984 Mij squier with Fender CS 69 pickups for $250. Took a lot of elbow grease to clean it up.
