    Franken...Twin?

    Y'all are awesome. https://www.bustedgear.com/res_Fender_output_transformers.htm The Vibrosonic idea seems to line up! Very Twin-like, similar panel, same control knobs. But it's 8 ohms, and the OT matches the VS. The newer cab/speaker makes more sense now. So maybe somebody had a VS and for...

    Franken...Twin?

    Looks like it was used on the VS, too.

    Franken...Twin?

    Nice pics of different joint conditions! Yeah, those rabbet joints just rely on the fasteners too much don't they... I did just google the OT number, and it supports Dacious's suggestion that I may have a Vibrosonic Reverb disguised as a Twin.

    Franken...Twin?

    Tech #2 determined 8ohms by taking a measurement while running the amp. I'm not totally sure what he was measuring (bias at different loads? voltage while running?). He didn't necessarily just trust the label on the panel. Regarding the cabinet, I have no guarantee, but: The are some old...

    Franken...Twin?

    OT xformer numbers: 022897 606-3-31 There is some sort of black marking over the top number, but I think that's it.

    Franken...Twin?

    My main question is - did Fender make a 70s Twin Reverb with 8ohms output? If not, then what the heck is my amp? :) Long story, but here's the summary. Bought it years ago (for cheap) about 15 years ago from a craigslist ad. It was banged up, but it worked and I just wanted a silverface twin...

    Talk me into fixing this Twin... again

    Alright, so I am still going to take it to a different known-entity tech (probably after the holidays), and see what the repair cost is. In the meantime, it occurred to me that it could possibly be something with the speakers. So, I tried hooking the TWIN to a known good speaker (matching...

    Talk me into fixing this Twin... again

    You guys are awesome. Thanks for all who replied. I really appreciate your thoughts, and all are helpful. I think I’m going to take it to a known reputable place and at least get a price for repair. If it’s reasonable, I’ll have it repaired and keep it. Or sell it. But probably keep it. If...

    Talk me into fixing this Twin... again

    Somebody talk me into nursing this Twin back to health. I have a mostly 1975 Silverface Twin Reverb. Bought it in about 2006 for about $400. I say mostly 1975 because it’s a 1975 amp chassis and guts, etc (according to the transformer codes), which has been installed into a newer Fender...

    Advice on Visiting Memphis

    Don't miss Rendezvous BBQ in Memphis - you'll thank me. As others have said, don't venture off of Beale later at night. ALL of the Mississippi advice above is good. You might find some good music on the square in Oxford, too if you're near there.

    What happened to your highschool sweetheart?

    Stayed friends with mine over the years. She married a guy, and they coincidentally ended up moving to the same town as me. Got to know her again and her husband, and they have been good friends of ours for years now.

    Transmissions- Manual or Automatic?

    My wife and I have always had manuals. I'm so used to it now that driving an automatic feels weird. For years, she refused to buy anything automatic until recently, when we gave in a bought a mini-van. It's a really nice mini-van, but they don't make 'em in manual. Yeah, I asked...the...

    80s Peavey Deuce?

    I've got a '75 Deuce II that was a birthday present in the early 90s. May be a little different from the Deuce (I), but it also is a hybrid with solid state preamp and tube power section. Played the heck out of it for years, and it was extremely reliable. I had it serviced a year or two ago...

    NAGD... x2!

    Thanks, ST. I'll update the thread if/when I have it repaired. I will as long as the cost isn't too outrageous.

    NAGD... x2!

    Ok, so does anybody have any idea about the Guermantes, i.e. any history, or idea of what it could be worth? I've got all of $15 in it now...

    NAGD... x2!

    One was a planned purchase; the other followed my wife home. First the planned purchase: Larrivee D-02. I've been without an acoustic for a while and have wanted a Larrivee. This one plays and sounds wonderfully. Love it! The other is below. My wife found this at an estate sale...
