    Mixing Speakers

    I’m starting to rethink my age old aversion to mixing different speakers. I guess it’s a trade off between wanting one EQ vs adding frequencies, especially bass. Can one speaker really do it all? Do guitarists really need bass? Who mixes different speakers and for what reasons? What says the mob?

    5F6A Settings

    Anyone here play a lot thru a tweed Bassman? I’ve started playing more thru mine and am interested in what settings you use. I jumper the channels, but haven’t settled on vol/vol, treb, bass, mid, presence settings. Thanks.

    Mixing 250K & 500K Pots

    I put a 500K vol pot in my Tele w miniHB in neck & trad SC in bridge. Left the 250K tone pot. Really made the PUs come alive in a good way. Seems like the tone control is more drastic roll off now, but that’s kinda good given the bridge PU’s new brightness. Not sure what value cap I wired in...

    Less is More?

    My ‘house/bedroom amp,’ a Princeton Reverb seemed bassy/flubby. It had come cut out for a 12” and I had an old Jensen P12P in there. So, I finally got around to putting a doughnut and 10” in there, a ‘70 Emi Alnico w alum dome. Presto! The flub is gone, it’s now crystal clear. Not quite as big...

    No Load Tone Pot

    Wondering what anyone’s experience is. Thinking about putting one on the neck/mid of my parts Strat. I forgot to wire the forward tone pot to my mid PU and I’m digging it so much it’s got me leaning towards having a no load there. What says the mob?
