I like this idea
Then again the tweed on this amp is pretty gnarly. LOL!
I might be able to wash it off if I get it off OK then just glue it back on.
I had to take off a few of the little finish nails that were holding the cab together. I kept three and put a bunch of wood glue in there and then put a wood clamp on the cab after pounding in the 3 nails. It's been on there for 24 hours so I will take it off tomorrow.
I might try to take off the tweed material and maybe wash it. Then when I get the new cab built I'll put it on there. I think it'll look "reliced".
If you absolutely positively need it smashed overnight...
I laugh every time I see the big truck that goes around to banks shredding records. All they need to do is call UPS. Just ship them to the next branch of the bank. The documents will be hamster bedding when they get there.
If UPS buys you a nice new Mojotone 5F6A cabinet, it would be an upgrade. I'm looking at the broken joints. Doesn't look fingerjointed to me.
Like I said- they're nailed together with small finish nails.
Have you been in touch with GC yet?
I would demand a call tag and a replacement.
To pay the coin and be treated like that is just plain Wrong.
I put the amp back together and tested the speaker with the broken mount and it's OK. I'll connect the rest of the speakers and put some NOS tubes in it to experiment.
No hurry to settle with GC.
What to do? Call 'rm up. Describe the wreckage. Let 'em know that's not what you paid for. Make 'em replace it, shipping courtesy vendor. They will comply. Kinda have to.
They won't fight if you let 'em swap it for a new one. They'll replace the defective thing, easy. They just won't want to give back money. It's how they work.
I just connected the rest of the speakers. Then I subbed the stock tubes for NOS- I think I put in GE 5881 for the power tubes and a Jan Phillips 12Xa7 in the first channel for now.
This babe sounds sweet now (but then it sounded good with the Groove Tubes but not as good as this)! Power to spare!
Real funky, bluesy tone.
I'm getting the feeling @chet again doesn't want to send this puppy back. Not sure, just a feeling.
You can do lots of variations on this amp to get different tones. Like jumpering the input channels etc. The LTD has a bias pot but I don't think I'll worry about that.
Just tried out the Bassman with one of my Strats and it sounds good. One of the things I like about the Bassman is you can play with the volume pot of the channel you're not using and it affects the channel you're playing on.
