    If you could get sucked into a time warp and go back to 1969...

    1969! I could go to Woodstock again! And be better prepared. Fill the car up with stuff like food and drink! Met my wife in 1969. Still together today. I was working air freight out of JFK. Trying in vain to put together a band. Very few cares or worries. Just rambling on…

    Time for some new tools.

    As always I would recommend a Fluke DVM and a Weller Soldering station. The Fluke 115 is a great meter. Weller WES51 has been my workbench station for over 10 years.

    Last place to get a flat.

    Everytime the weather changes here you can see the long line outside Discount Tire of folks waiting to get their tires inflated. Can't think of anyplace with free air here. I just rebuilt my old Craftsman Air Compressor. Regulator was shot. Hope I get another 16 years from it.

    So, is the Blues Jr. really that bad?

    I like them well enough. I’ve modded lots of them for customers with the Bill M kits. Depending on which series amp they all sound different. Today’s tip: Want better reverb, put the tank in a bag like AES sells. Also I prefer the Belton tank to the Mod tank Fender uses.

    Super cool gig coming up. I’m starting to get really excited. Long post.

    Wow. Great story. Need a CD soot can accompany us in the Lincoln. I still have my old Technics turntable but it only gets used if we don’t have a CD.

    Blues Junior - extremely high voltage problem (1300 Vdc on EL84 plate)

    If Corliss1 says it so it is so. I agree with him about the screen resistors. Same in the HR Deluxe.

    1965 Pro Reverb On The Bench: 5V4 enough current?

    I’m currently using 5R4’s in a Pro Reverb and Bandmaster Reverb with no problems. I don’t see a problem with using a 5V4.

    What would a higher output bridge unit do to the middle position?

    It will sound great. Chopper T is my favorite bridge pickup. I have it paired with a vintage Firebird, a DeArmond Dynasonic and with a Fast Track. Sounds great with all of them.
