green. this is not difficult.
Didn't you read the OP? He plays a lot of BLUES.
There is so much misinformation floating around the internet.....jeez!
It has to be Amber, but it needs to have that vintage mojo. Don't get one of the new Chinese relic'd ones though, no mojo at all. Oh, do the true bypass mod, you won't hear a thing, but you'll know it sounds better.
I just replaced to Jewel on my new Fender 212R with a vintage 1967 Twin Jewel and I'm amazed at the improvement in tone and it also helped me lose 10 pounds and get a raise at work.
But isn't green too obvious, being the complementary color to the stock red?
For more versatility install a clear one with a bidirectional LED behind it. Add a polarity switch and you can toggle between red and green.
Should this be it DIY Amps? Mods feel free to move if so.
of course I read it AND I gave the right information. The fact that you question it shows you have not played using a green light cover. When you have, you will crawl, CRAWL I say, to the feet of Mr. Miyagi and share your new knowledge...
if green were obvious, you'd already support its choice.
Dumble sent me a 20-page questionnaire and then we did a rorschach test over Skype. After careful analysis of the results he determined my personalized CMYK value and then custom blew the glass for my one-of-a-kind scarlet jewel light.
My idiot bass player thinks it looks just like my old stock jewel, but he's a bassist, so. . .
Now you're just being silly--We're trying to have a serious discussion here!
By the way, it seems the NOS lights are getting harder to find and I refuse to use the cheap Chinese and Russian glass. I also refuse to pay the premium for the Swarovski crystal which in double blind tests have been proved to provide minimal results at best.
The colour is irrelevant,the most expensive is always best. I always carry the receipt to prove how much I paid. I've often been told I'm pretty special.
Installed a tartarian plaid jewel in mine and it worked great.
If you want to split hairs there's Drake, Dial and repro. The good repro is FAA approved. It's an aircraft part. The cool old jewels came out of airplanes. That's where you get the funky colors. The old ones have a color density lacking the new ones.
The prize goes to...
An old cobalt blue smooth from a WWII bomber panel. It was my best aggie until I gave it to a buddy...
Funny you should mention the green light. My friend that wants two blue jewel lights - he has a green one now and he said after he gets his new blue ones he will give me the green one. So I'll be testing it out on my 66 Super Reverb soon, and will let you know the results.
I still think an amber light is the way to go tho, at least for the music I like to play.
Is FAA approved the same as Military Spec?
Are you high? You want it parallel with a single top filament splitting option.
It was the secret to the early Nugent sound.
Once I removed the jewel from my old Bandmaster. Really opened up the tone.
I've heard black lights will absorb all tone, while white lights will reflect all tone back into the underpants. This is probably why we don't see those very often.
your mind will be blown. You will begin to doubt your friend.. but after a brief time, he will beg for it back and you should refuse him with a deep and abiding laugh.
Well in reality, quite a bit of your tone escapes through the empty socket--that's where the bypass mod comes into play.
