    Looking for a mid heavy 10" speaker

    Thanks. That's good to hear about the G-10, the sound clips or vids that are out there are not really that helpful. I bought a used Blues Deluxe that had a 12" Cannabis Rex in it. Always wanted to try it in a 2x12 with a brighter speaker. Have never heard a 10 though. Pretty close with the...

    Looking for a mid heavy 10" speaker

    Looking for a speaker for my Fender 68 CVR. Currently running 2 Eminince 1058s, which give me the headroom I want, and generally sound great, but it can still sound a bit too scooped or hollow for live stuff and get asked by bandmates (drummers usually) to turn up now and again if they don't...

    Quiet 12at7 for reverb send?

    Will give this a try. I still have an old RCA cleartop somewhere I think. If not a new one won't break the bank.

    Quiet 12at7 for reverb send?

    Looking for recommendations for a quiet 12at7 for reverb send slot in a 68 CVR. Being picky as I have been recording recently and am able to play at home for the first time in a while. The reverb starts to get pretty noisy around 3-4 which is where I like it to be. I have a few about the house...

    Fender CVR 68 distortion problems

    I started getting an unwanted distortion from my 68 CVR at a gig.. No pops or clicks, just a mushy lack of bass kind of sound that stuck around for the last few numbers. I had some old preamp tubes in there so I replaced them all. Still mushy. Changed out the two 6L6s still no good. At bedroom...

    Neck Replacement Required No Set Up- Just Lucky?

    I'm wondering if anyone has ever changed a neck and found they didn't need to adjust anything? I've made a few partscasters in the past and also changed out necks on teles that I didn't like (usually because they were too skinny for my hands). I just replaced a neck on a partscaster, sanded down...

    Fender Red Knob "The Twin" Club

    I need to get a proper cab for it for sure. Bet it sounded huge through a stack. I'm going to use it with a 15 for garage band stuff as the pedals I'm using for that band sound great through it. Unfortunately not been able to really let it rip at an outdoor gig, but played a gig with it once...

    Fender Red Knob "The Twin" Club

    Took the head to a garage band practice and played guitar through the 15" Fullback mounted in a bass cab (need to get a 1x15 guitar cab), Wowzer! Sounded huge- I'm sure that other 15s would sound better for a cleanish sound, but the Celstion really shines when hit with some od and disortion-...

    Fender Red Knob "The Twin" Club

    Bought mine ten years ago to be heard in a loud 9 piece, amp was in a bad state cosmetically but all jacks and switches good. When that band folded I bought a smaller Fender combo which you can just see bottom left, and thought about selling it. Had a bunch of speakers at the time and changed...

    Give up on a faulty speaker ?

    Wow, some great advice, thanks. Read the threads and Ted Weber's advice. Mine sounds the same mounted or not. Just noticeable on the D, A and E strings, especially with two or more bass notes fretted. It does it any way up, and manipulating the cone doesn't seem to help. The speaker is pretty...

    Give up on a faulty speaker ?

    Hi all, purchased a used Eminence 1028k for my 2x10 amp. Installed and played at bedroom volumes and all sounds good, but after turning amp up, some of the lower frequencies are causing the speaker to buzz and distort. Removed the speaker and connnected it to a head, same issues... kind of a...

    Yes the tab is still there, just can't make it out in the bad pic. Thanks Wally.

    Dual footswitch basic wiring help needed.

    Thanks very much guys. Going to fix that now. Very quick answers, much appreciated. Sorry for bad pic. One last question, might a footswitch like the one linked below work with this amp? The Fender one is a clunky awkward little pedal and I've knocked the verb off before when engaging the trem...

    Dual footswitch basic wiring help needed.

    My footswitch for my Fender amp has been playing up. There's no obvious problem when I look inside the pedal housing, everything seems connected. I took the pancake head jack that goes to the amp apart and found the ground securely soldered but the two main wires are not connected to anything. I...

    Simpleton 68 CVR 6L6 Bias Question

    No not going to change anything... have I misunderstood? I would guess my first sentence in the reply is wrong then.I suppose I should have been clearer with my question, I was curious if they were biased on the hot or cold side compared to stock.

    Simpleton 68 CVR 6L6 Bias Question

    Thanks very much for your reply Wally, so based on my 44ma reading being accurate, each tube is at around 22ma. My knowledge of tube biasing is fairly basic, the other Fender I own has an external bias trim pot and balance pot so anything beyond that and I'm taking it to a tech as I don't have a...

    Simpleton 68 CVR 6L6 Bias Question

    Hi, I checked the grid bias voltage on my 68 CVR using an adapter placed between the tube and the socket. The first tube gave me a reading of 44ma and the second 43ma. I thought this was quite high and was expecting 22-27ma.The stupid question is.. does this mean each tube is biased at over 40ma...

    Fender Red Knob "The Twin" Club

    I see from your posts you'd like more clarity and volume from the clean channel ? I can't imagine that is normal at all, maybe you should get the amp looked over if you are able to. Ironically I have just put a couple of GT branded Sovtek 5881's in mine, which came stock in the 68 CVR I just...

    Wiring woes-3 way

    Hi, just took out 5 way wiring, and s1 switch from a Baja Classic Player 60s and followed diagram for 3 way wiring, the neck pickup has 3rd yellow ground wire for the pickup casing ? I grounded it along with others on volume pot-- middle position is now weak, so switched bridge pickup wires...

    Reverb tank noise

    Had a chance to buy a recently serviced Dual Showman Reverb head for 400 quid a few years ago, fairly rare over here.. not having money for a cab is what put me off at the time... but with the money I spent fixing and replacing things on the cheaper the twin combo it would have been much...

    Reverb tank noise

    Yes it's closer by an inch maybe, but enough to affect it, sounded fine when I took the tank out and put it outside the cabinet, so definitely the tank and magnet interacting. I'm going to switch spots with the 12 I have in the other slot and see if it makes any difference, looks like it may be...

    Reverb tank noise

    Hi there, I have feedback when I turn my reverb past 6 on my Red Knob The Twin. It is being caused by the magnet from a 10" speaker I put in there (with 12-10 converter) about a year ago, but have only just noticed as I usually have the reverb no higher than 4 on this amp. I have tried...

    Fender Red Knob twin vs Twin Reverb 65 reissue clean channel comparison or issue

    I play humbuckers through my red knob twin into input 2 as stated above and they sound similar to the dude in the youtube link below.. Your 57's may be hotter than what I have so rolling off the volume a wee bit may give you the sound you want.. the impedance selector may have been set to 8ohms...
