    Anyone tried the Fender WRHB CuNiFe Reissue?

    Thanks horseman, that is interesting....certainly something I would not have considered if you had not brought it to my attention. I will do some more testing. It was annoying enough that I have left the guitar in the stand for a couple weeks now. I have been chasing a vibration like static...

    Peavey Bandit speaker upgrade? Texas Heat/Swamp Thang?

    I have had a Texas Heat in my Classic 30 for about 8 years. It is a terrific match for this circuit. My initial experience I still remember it as a lot like Chimey1’s. This is not one of my core gigging/session amps, but it is one I plug into whenever I want to smile. I have gigged with it...

    Recommend me a Guitar Speaker For my Peavey CLASSİC 30

    I’ve had a Classic 30 as one of my amps for around 8yrs or so….I installed a Texas Heat in it and never looked back….just an all around beast of a speaker. I remember it was highly recommended as a replacement speaker for this amp in several threads. It is punchy, round highs and excellent...

    Anyone tried the Fender WRHB CuNiFe Reissue?

    Now, that the honeymoon is over I am evolving to feel that this Cunife pickup has one bad trait. At least on the Vibrolux and the Vox 15HW there is a disconcerting extended warble as the note or chord fades. I have tried different pickup and pole heights and it is still present. I strung it...

    Vox Experts: adding a bit more "fatness" to an AC15HW

    I was chasing the same thing in terms of bass punch and retaining the chime. I purchased the amp new and it came stock with a Celestion G12M. Tubes replaced with Tubestore Preferred series EL84 and two Preferred series 7025, Sovtek 12AXLPS Phase Inverter, and Raytheon NOS Rectifier helped. I...

    Anyone tried the Fender WRHB CuNiFe Reissue?

    With my wife laid up, we just spent a couple weeks on the road, well sort of at a condo in northern Michigan. The new CuNiFe played was played a lot I mostly used a Boss Reverb RV6 and a MXR Carbon Copy through a 57 Custom Deluxe with a Fat Jimmy A1260 alnico and a miked 57 Custom Champ with...

    Anyone tried the Fender WRHB CuNiFe Reissue?

    Well, I've reasoned that keeping my vintage 72 thinline all original is a noble, but illusory goal. After string replacement, I spent considerable time playing last night while closely listening to the individual notes in specific strings. It appears that there is variation in the magnet pole...

    Anyone tried the Fender WRHB CuNiFe Reissue?

    Piotr, you are correct. A few weeks ago, I purchased a new Fender CuNiFe neck pickup and installed it in this Vintera. I do not pretend to be an expert, but I have been playing WRHB equipped guitars since 1972. Based on my ears, I felt that the stock Vintera pickup sounded a little dark and...

    Anyone tried the Fender WRHB CuNiFe Reissue?

    Well, I got in the game by playing the Fender new CuNiFe equipped Vintera, the Mojotone 72 Clone FeCrCo equipped, and the Gretsch Filter'Tron HS equipped Cabronita and just listening to similar licks. This was done through a Vibrolux (Jupiter 10LCs, Stapleton 62 Princeton (Eminence Stock). and...

    Anyone tried the Fender WRHB CuNiFe Reissue?

    I just got a chance to look at this Ruger 9, wife got struck by a car while riding her bike and is plenty busted up, but at least not severe head and spine injuries. She's now home and I am the nurse and human support animal. I will sit down and play these two through some amps I have set up...

    Anyone tried the Fender WRHB CuNiFe Reissue?

    With some help from the sound engineer who runs our board typically, I feel now that I have the CuNiFe pickup and the bridge perfectly balanced. This WRHB upgrade was worth it in my opinion. We played out again and I am getting used to the Fiesta Red hanging on the strap. Gotta admit, I...

    Anyone tried the Fender WRHB CuNiFe Reissue?

    Thanks Ruger 9-This Vintera Custom is the first MIM Fender I have ever owned. It came equipped with a reissue WRHB that for me did not have the voicing I expected and like my AVRI Thinline the reissue(s) needed to go. I am unsure what they may put in with the MIM reissues pickups and can't...

    Anyone tried the Fender WRHB CuNiFe Reissue?

    Below is a response I received from David @ Mojotone back in 2016. I had asked the question about magnet composition a while after installing the 72 Clones in my Thinline AVRI. Huge difference over the re-issues that I was lead to believe were re-voiced by Fender in my guitar. I have read...

    Anyone tried the Fender WRHB CuNiFe Reissue?

    I found the bridge to be overpowering the neck and spent some time today adjusting the height of both pickups. I had previously used Telenators suggestions on setting the new CuNiFe pickup and also on my 72 Thinline AVRI where I installed Mojotone 72 Clones maybe 6 years ago. On the Vintera, I...

    Anyone tried the Fender WRHB CuNiFe Reissue?

    Today, I rewired the Vintera Custom bridge pickup and found joy-voila. I clipped the base plate ground at the ground (Black) wire. I cut a piece of 18 gauge wire and fed it through to the control cavity. Soldered this onto the base place of the pickup and to the same ground used on the bridge...

    Anyone tried the Fender WRHB CuNiFe Reissue?

    I just started a conversation with Racer5, I soldered the leads to the same ground and hot lug on the neck volume pot as the stock neck and it appears to be following the schematic included with the CuNiFe pup (that schematic is for the Deluxe-USA build no doub). But mine is definitely out of...

    Can anyone enlighten me on Fat Jimmy Speakers?

    I did not find the speaker louder. I believe I read earlier in this thread that the efficiency of this speaker was around 96db. In this case, this translates into a full spectrum speaker but loud, no. Overdriven it held together and gave up that typically tween distortion but did not become...

    Can anyone enlighten me on Fat Jimmy Speakers?

    I just recently picked up the 57 Custom Champ. I bought it new, but like some of you I tinker until it pleases my ears. I had no real issue with the stock Weber "Special Design", but because of the positive experience with FJ I ordered the C825 before I purchased the amp. I found the texture...

    Can anyone enlighten me on Fat Jimmy Speakers?

    Well, I am making plenty of noise with FJ speakers. I have a A1260 in a 57 Custom Deluxe (Awesome), a C825 in a 57 Custom Champ just installed today(both these amps the late hand wired amp models). And because I have and love the Jupiter 12LA in my DRRI, I now have the 1270 in a Peavey Classic...
