    Amp with the most Tubes?

    Funny thought hit me a few minutes ago? What amp can you think of with the most tubes? I mean, I've only played amps with up to four tubes. But, there's gotta be some mad scientist stuff out there. Watcha got?

    Perfect amp? A 35 watt small 5f6-a?

    So, I think I want to (with massive help from others) design a 35 watt, either 2x10 or 1x12 tweed Bassman/HP Twin. I know it won't have the 4x10 spread... But, this is more of a grab and go, or small gigging amp. Something light, relatively compact, but enough juice to get over my saxophone...

    In Praise of the Mighty Tweed Bassman (A Long, Sordid Tale)

    I own a few amps, and I've traded and bought in and out of a bunch of amps over the years. For years, I had dreamed of owning a tweed Bassman, but never really stepped up to bat... I was perfectly willing to go with a Reissue. Every one I'd heard sounded good. Plus, I knew I'd never own a...

    Alerts not going away...

    I do like the new layout and upgrade. Thanks! My one issue is pretty small, really. But, early in the morning, before I've had enough coffee, it get's a little confusing... It will show that i have 8 new alerts. But, when I click on the alerts icon, I see every alert since the upgrade. I...

    Anybody ever used Cedar for a Speaker Cab?

    So, thinking about building a lightweight cab for one of my amps. I have a piece of clear vertical grain cedar sitting in the shop (it was one pricey piece of wood when I bought it for a client... Who ended up not using it). It's so pretty, I probably won't use it for something I'd cover with...

    Intermittent static on the attack of a note?

    So, my 5f8-a is giving me a frustrating issue.... It only seems to happen when the amp has been on a for a while... and only when I'm in the middle of band rehearsal. It is a loud crackling static that comes as I hit a note/chord, etc. It only happens on the very front of the note... It is...

    Help - Harlem Nocturne Chords

    So, new band includes a sax player. One of his standards is Harlem Nocturne (in Gm). I have tried picking the chords out from a couple different versions (none in Gm that I have found so far, most are Em) and I am just struggling. I'm not very good at that for anything beyond simpler 12 bar...

    Anticipation.... Incra TS-LS on it's way!

    Well, I ordered an INcra TS-LS Joinery system around my birthday this year... I'm an Aquarius. LOL I was warned it would take a while, given an estimated delivery of June. But, due to COVID delays, it's been an extra month. So, I got the notification that it's on it's way now and I am...

    LGR (Loaned Guitar Report) - Maton Tommy Emmanuel Signature

    So, I accompanied my wife on a business trip back tot he town we moved away from a year and a half ago. When I told folks I was coming back, I got recruited for two gigs, one electric, one acoustic. I really didn't feel like dealing with airlines and my gear, so I threw it out there and got...

    NGD: Flamenco!

    Never owned a nylon string guitar before in my life. Not even as a kid. 37+ years of playing... Don't play Flamenco, or even Classical stuff, either. But, I was goofing around using one of the Xmas gift cards at GC a few weeks ago and meandered into the acoustic room. I picked up a little...

    Waza Air Headphones? The Perfect Practice solution?

    Perfect? LOL . Might never happen. But, I gotta say, these look interesting. I'd contemplate trading my HX Stomp for one of these, if the amp sounds are acceptable.

    More homemade tools: Shop Stool and Wooden Mallet

    I made a stool for the shop... Well, it's a prototype to test my rough sketch of a design. Wanted to test the height, and comfort for a while on crappy wood before butchering nice stuff. While sitting in said stool, I used some nicer wood to make another experiment that I really, really...

    ‘Nuther Homemade Tool: Marking Gauge

    I’ve had a Veritas metal marking gauge for forever and a day. My only complaints with it are the fence is too small and there is no measurement markings on the shaft (it’s an old version, before they started putting that on them. But, it was mostly about the fence size. So.... just...

    Shadetree Ingenuity: Small parts thickness sander!

    So, needed some thin strips of wood to add to some boxes I'm building. I spun the fence over on the table saw to cut some strips about 1/8" thick. Of course, they had burns all over them from cutting those tiny pieces up against the fence. Coulda done it right and shaved them off the outside...

    NTD: DeWalt 60V Worm Drive 'Style' Circular Saw

    This is the deal, I liked: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07Q9XZ4VN/?tag=tdpri-20 I've been eying these for quite a while now. When I came across this deal on a "Renewed' model, with a charger and battery, I hopped on it. When I stopped doing full time remodeling, I sold off all my DeWalt...

    L-Fence for the Table Saw? Genius!

    Saw this video came across my Facebook feed this morning. Right about 3:20 in the video as he demonstrates, basically, template cutting on a table saw. It hit me this would be the perfect jig/accessory for making angled amp cabinets...

    Time to buy tools....

    So, last year, I moved from Virginia to Southern California. During the move, I sold off a ton of stuff... This is the first time I've been without a table saw in decades! Finally, it looks like our house back east is selling and we've found a new house here. I still have my drill press...

    New HX Stomp Day

    Caught the red eye from California to Virginia Wednesday/Thursday... Can't sleep on planes, got about two hours of sleep... grabbed the new HX Stomp and spent all of about 20 minutes with it before running off to a gig... and leaving it at home. My first impression of every factory preset I...

    NFCD: New Flight Case Day!

    My first flight case just arrived yesterday. Probably one of the most pleasant Reverb purchase experiences of my life... But first, my life is changing in a big way in a few weeks. I am moving out of my home state, Virginia, and am off to California. In the last almost two years I have been...

    NAD: Marshall Origin 20C

    Went to the dark side! Well, not really. It's actually pretty bright! LOL Been playing Fenders most of my playing life. It's been brownface and tweeds the last ten years or so, with some forays into some silver and blackface. But, this is my first Marshall. I tired the 50C last week at...

    Decisions, decisions: Origin 20 or 5e3?

    So, I know my life is about to change in a major way. The wife and I are packing up and moving to California. We'll be living with one of our daughters for a little while. There will be grandkids and a smaller house than we live in now. My normal home volumes will have to be even lower than...

    Voltage Regulator, Line Filter, UPS... What's the answer?

    So, I normally have a pretty quiet rig. I use a Furman power strip thing (the cheap one) that does a better job than the cheapy surge suppressors from Walmart and Home Depot at keeping things relatively quiet. I use it at my gigs and have had very little problem. I know it's not the best...

    Multimeter? Time for a New One...

    So, I've got an old Fluke 77... The display has gone south... I replaced the screen and it's till only half there. So, I'm thinking 30+ years and it's time to buy it a gold watch and let it sit quietly by the seaside. I have some cheaper meters... Harbor Freight models. They work, but are...

    NOD: LovePedal Super Sic Tone

    Huh? Never heard of it before. But, I got sucked in by the LovePedal Sale thread over on TGP... ran down a few rabbit holes on Reverb and Youtube. Ended up scoring this for a very, very reasonable price. First impression: It's sick as can be! I have been kinda fascinated with Tonebender...
