    cheap vintage amp day, info request

    VERY VERY unlikely to have "3 6V6" tubes. MUCH MUCH more likely to have 2 6V6's and a rectifier, all of which are a similar size. Your tech will be able to tell you which is the rectifier, maybe 5Y3 or 5U4, etc. Be careful: if you put the wrong tube in the rectifier position you will certainly...

    Right Angle Plug on Speaker Cable

    Instrument cable is not ideal - it has a slim inner conductor surrounded by a braided shield. Speaker cables are two identical larger conductors, lamp cord is a fine replacement. Right-angle connectors can be a little crowded inside and it's not quite as easy to fit the bulkier speaker cable...

    Electronics experts: need help with a pin connector ID

    Those look like Molex to me - try an auto parts store, better prices than electronics stores, and much more commonly found.

    Hopefully A Painlessly Way To Get Into Experimenting With Tubes

    +1 - I have the same dc/dc converter here. Not sure you'd get enough current for an output stage (maybe a 12AT7/reverb transformer type is within reach?) But it'll fire up a few preamp tubes for sure, and, yes, it'll need a little bit of current draw to regulate well. If you feel like building...

    Help:Input not working, effects return does!

    If the full set of switching options are used on the Cliff jack, you'll want to use the exact replacement. It's capable of switching all three contacts. If the jack is intended to be isolated from the chassis, then you'll need an enlarged hole and a shoulder washer to install a switchcraft...
