    Clapton's Extended Solos in Cream

    The fire of youth! And some skills. LOL. On Crossroads, the tempo is brisk with jack and ginger driving it. At times teetering on two wheels. It must have been terrifying to think of something to play at that speed so there’s the usual repetitive riffs until he has a transitional phrase. Jacks...

    Do you have guitars dedicated to slide playing?

    Yes: one dedicated to open E and another to open G with action raised so there is no rattle when sliding

    How many Esquires end up getting a neck pickup installed?

    I made 2 esquires about a dozen years back 1. With cocked wah wiring 2. With high output broadcaster pickup. Neither needed a neck pickup :) Iggy

    Unusual problem with bypass ...

    It's a pedal clone of a love pedal purple plexi. It's a new build I've built one before. In this case I plug my guitar into the pedal and the pedal into an amp I power up and my clean guitar signal goes to the amp . I engage the pedal step on switch and LED light comes on and I have the effect...

    Unusual problem with bypass ...

    Its a pedal which passes the signal and works as it should until I press the switch but when I step on the switch again I lose the bypass signal .

    New OT in my 5F1

    So I am trying to turn this info into a simple connect the dots (wires) step and it looks like this: I use the 8 ohm tap to the jack AND into the NFB circuit WITH a 15 K resistor

    New OT in my 5F1

    New OT in my 5F1

    Thanks: things are coming into focus: If I connect the 2ndry 8 ohm tap to the speaker/load and then the 2ndry 3.2/4 ohm tap to the NFB resistor (currently 22K based on the original spec)... I assumed that I could keep the 22k value. if not...how do I calculate/correct that component value??

    New OT in my 5F1

    Hello good people: I am overhauling my 5F1 by installing a larger 12 inch speaker . I had an alnico eminence 8 ohm lying around. The cabinet I had built was already "deluxe" size so I only had to make a new baffle. I then ordered a new OT because the weber I had was spec'd for 3.2 ohms. I got...

    model 24 LITE

    I used to buy stuff from Watts but sounds like the business has become flaky. I can get a chassis from Hoffman but dont feel like making a board from scratch...I wonder if I can just adapt an existing board from Hoffman's offerings?...maybe an 18Watt variant with about the right number of...

    model 24 LITE

    thinking about a stripped down version of a Supro "24" style amp. I am looking for a single channel without the tremolo. I recall there was something called the model 24 Lite from Watts but cant find any details on that one. I have also seen a version by "SLuckey" that might help me and another...

    Spitfire or PA 26 ..with EL34s ?

    Thankyou sir. I believe I have the power section figured out and will post my "diagram". I also plan to use a rectifier tube instead of the diode rec. I still need an example of the changes to the circuit and additional parts reqd to create the cascade. I am not knowledgeable enough in the...

    Spitfire or PA 26 ..with EL34s ?

    I had a spare head/cabinet lying around...about the size of a Marshall...or Spitfire... so put some black tolex and gold piping on it .... and now it just needs a brain recent projects included 1) a PA 26 (with ss rec and KT 66s) which gets some use and 2) a "spitfire" which also gets some use...

    can I swap the KT66s for EL34s ??

    Guys a few years back I built this PA 26-66. It had acceptable but annoying noise when I turned the tone up; I reoriented the OT but it didnt make a difference. Now I am wondering if the OT Hammond 1760J 35 watt is not properly matched to the KT 66 tubes and perhaps a swap to EL34s might further...
