    NBD — Blencowe

    I'm ordering it as well. I like his other books, but copies of his first edition power amp book were just too much for me to stomach. This is great, thanks for sharing.

    1970’s and 1980’s Professional Wrestling

    Jack Witschi's Sports Arena in North Attleboro, Mass was the place to see wrestling when I was a kid in the 70's. My dad hated it, but was a good sport and brought me and my friends for special occasions like birthdays. Saw Chief J. Strongbow, Billy White Wolf, the Superstar Billy Graham...

    Does neck plate thickness have any effect on tone?

    I've heard the plates starting with an "L" impart the most tone

    TDPRI personalities

    I can't believe nobody's picked apart the builder yet, who builds everything for $300 and keeps the rest. Yeah right, IRL they (we) are spending way more than we let on, usually exceeding what we'd pay for the brand name guitar. But it's an adventure building each one, and I'd rather waste...

    too much technology ?

    100% agree. The Vibro-King came out in '93, the pinnacle of amp success.

    Moderator Appreciation Day

    Agree, the moderators here do a great job. In the early 2000's I was a regular on the AGA, that's an example where things can go downhill if there's nobody monitoring content.

    Most ergonomically comfortable guitar? For me, it may be...

    Peegoo I like the concept, I've got an old Music master neck I was thinking of building a sort of stripped down travel guitar. But doesn't it slide around on your leg when playing seated? I was thinking similar to yours for top and back, but hump like a music master on the bottom to keep it...

    Most ergonomically comfortable guitar? For me, it may be...

    Duo-Sonic II with a 24" B width neck from Oct 64. My fave and most comfortable guitar, especially playing seated. Maybe the guys who still play out at gigs standing may disagree, but it's pretty light as well.

    Pro Reverb versus Deluxe Reverb

    Both great amps, but my SF Pro Reverb just fills the room with sound better. It's like your enveloped in sound. And my clean channel is as sparkly as it gets. I think I've mentioned on the forum I bought this amp on Ebay for a great price without ever hearing it, with the thought I'd...

    pawn shop guitars

    Pawn shops were great before the internet, I'd hit a few up anytime I was in a new city. Nowadays they know what they've got after 2 minutes online, I haven't come across a good pawn shop deal in many years.

    Adding resistance to pickup output

    You could get some custom knobs that go to 11 a la Spinal Tap. Then playing on 10 would give you similar tone to playing on 8-9 does now

    I Was Hoping For A New Car Day, Buuuuuuuut...

    I hate to say it, but I don't think these supply chain issues will be getting better soon. Also it's more than just new car chips, it's brake pads, oil filters, all sorts of things. My truck's been stuck in the shop with transmission problems, they're struggling to get the new parts to fix...

    BIC 4 Color Pen

    In pharmacy school in the 80's we used those for drawing out molecular structures in medicinal chemistry. Always pushing those electrons. All you could hear was constant click, click, click

    Any of your guitars that you've rediscovered?

    My Ovation, to be specific the LCC047-HB Lefty Electro-Acoustic Guitar. Since I got my Martin D Jr that gets all my acoustic playing time, but I stumbled across the Ovation the other day and had forgot how nice that radiused neck feels.

    Running two amps - pros and cons

    Years ago when rack gear was in I ran a stereo setup into the power amp in of two Blues DeVille amps. I always figured it must have sounded awesome, but honestly it only sounded good to the crowd in between the two amps. If you're not doing the stereo thing, and have the amps near each other...

    Best Battery Powered Amp

    Smicz PORTABLuEs 110. They've been out of business for years, but if you see one grab it quick. I'm not letting mine go.

    Two questions

    Silverface Pro Reverb is a great amp, 1/2 the power of the Twin and tube rectified. I bought mine online without hearing it, with the intent to "Blackface" the circuit. Once I heard it I left it completely as is, no need to "fix" anything on it.
