I replaced the jewel in my DRRI with a fricking laser beam. It cuts through the mix much better now.
Good memory, waparker!
One bajillion dolleurs....
Well...started gassing on this thread. Went out and splurged on a brand new custom blue Fender jewel light for my 82' Super Champ. Not sure how I'm going to explain this one.
Natural relic Amber, can't beat it for tone.
I'm not sure about tone but I have been working on the basis that because red cars go faster than blue, it's a well known fact, I should be able to play faster scales when using a Fender amp with a red light than my Ashton amp with a blue light. So far I have not been proven wrong.
If this is true, is it also possible that with a white jewel, you make less mistakes? Because white car's get in fewer accidents than red ones?
So Paul if one switched to yellow or amber, will it help you sound cleaner at slower speeds?
I recently replaced my jewel with a custom made crystal but it was a mistake because fragile harmonics can't survive in a solid state crystal lattice.
i swapped out the light on my silverface bassman for a red one from a vintage jtm-45. i noticed it breaks up much earlier and the overdrive is a little creamier than with the blue. the blue is notorious for being overly clean, even sterile, at gig levels.
i kept the NOS blue in case i ever need to push the amp past 6-7... but the red really adds that low volume shimmer
Tried a little lens rolling last night. Not only is there a difference between colours, but I was finding that even different red ones yield altered tones. Slight, but noticeable.
Thats a nice blue light!! I know that amp has gota sound much better now. Well done congrats! I really do like the blue ones.
I'm gona get that green one soon and see if getbent is right.
Does anyone offer a brown jewel? I was thinking it may really work well with a holy stain pedal. Worried though it may effect the bottom end.
Blue. Cause it's bluesy. Get it....bluesy, as in da blues mang.
Sorry I'm new to all these jewel light mods and it's probably been discussed before but...
I heard that Lava lamps will introduce their new line of jewel lights at summer NAMM.
will they really give that psycedelic touch of sound or is it just some marketing fad?
anyone have more information on that, please & thanks.
My amp power light is a nice bright red, the gain channel selected light is amber, my overdrive pedal light is green and my chorus pedal light is red. No wonder my amp, at times, sounds confused, must be the lights, it cannot be my playing.
I went with the "Standard Wertzel Stacked-Jewel Mod" with "Blue-over-Red-to get-Purple". It sounds (and looks) stellar. Interstellar, in fact. I have heard the "Amber-over-Blue-to get-Emerald" sounds good, too. Gonna have to thin the herd before I can afford that one, though....
