    6V6GT bias: 12W or 14W? Idle observation...

    I’ve been “tuning” the cathode bias on my Single Ended 6V6GT amps to around 12.5 watts dissipation and in the 90% (at least 85%) range. Sometimes the sound is very similar, but I notice an increase in “fullness” and tactile response in a higher percentage.

    Any way to make this look a little less like a dogs dinner?

    That looks very much like one of the MOD Kits that Antique Electronic Supply sell. If it is, they sound great and are very quiet… No worries at all with this well thought out layout.

    1959 5F6A Bassman Revival

    The ceramics are not stock. It looks like the magnets stick out farther than the alnico magnets. Maybe swap them out, and put the ceramics on the bottom?

    User upgrades, supporting member & vendors issue

    Looking forward to finding out if that helps! Filing a dispute via PayPal might be an option. Seeing ads when one has paid not to see them is one thing, going dark and not responding or communicating is another.

    User upgrades, supporting member & vendors issue

    I’ve made several attempts to get this corrected and still nothing. Still seeing ads, still no badge on my username, and still no response from any forum staff or MODs Will somebody please contact me and let me know what’s happening with this?

    Newbie 5F1 Build

    Welcome! 1. Maybe attach your “runners” before you start soldering. 2. Double check your “back of the board” connections. 3. Have fun!

    GA5 3-way NFB?

    Good point! I have never really thought about the effect of the tail resistor. I just thought the 47k NFB gave the GA5 more gain than the 5F1.

    Good point… Warmoth necks are heavy, aren’t they!

    How does one measure how many watts a guitar amp is actually putting out?

    Is my 5F1 actually putting out 5 watts? Is my Big Bottle 5F2A actually putting out 10W? Or 12W? The output transformer is rated for 15W. I just finished a GA5 in a Champ Chassis utilizing a GZ34/6L6 and a 15W OT - this bad boy is LOUD! I wanna know… how loud is it?
