Re: RIP Glen Campbell at 81

Mike, I don't think that's a Fender.
Anybody else?
I can't place it, but it doesn't look quite right.
I cant get the 2nd video, but 1:34 in the first one has a pretty good shot.

Re: Road case

I have had good luck with Tuki soft / padded cases.
I haven't bought one in a while, but that's good, I guess.
They were reasonably priced at the time.

RIP Goldy McJohn

Keyboard player, but he had an amp too.

RIP Glen Campbell at 81

Another great gone.
Played on more records from the 60's & 70's than anybody, I think.
Seems like they're going faster these days.

Re: importance of air-tightness in a cab?

I'm not sure there is data for guitar applications.
I've played lots of "sealed" cabs with 1 to 3 open phone jacks.
Sometimes they whistle with no plug.
Switchcraft used to make a phone plug with a threaded ring to lock the plug in.
And spring loaded soft rubber covers for the other ones.

Re: Ceriatone OTS Mini Build Help

It's not the newbie part, it's the Nik/Ceriatone part. Try a search for those sentiments. Well it's kind of a newbie part. A "Hi!, I'm Joe Blow from Lower BF Egypt and I bought the cheapest dreck kit I could get, why don't it work?", would go a long way. If Nik had to take time and energy and money ...

Re: Ceriatone OTS Mini Build Help

Is it just me, or does it seem that when somebody with no history here puts up an emergency post, there is a really good chance it's about a problem they're having with a fucking Ceriatone.

I got an idea.

Go to the Ceriatone site and ask.

Re: JMP Reissue w/JCM800 & AFD mods

Martin,

I think that whole 30 series of mods was on the Metro site.
I have them stuck away on a hard drive somewhere if you can't find them.
34, 35, - 39 maybe...\

Re: New Solid State FX loop source - $20

Bryce, Thank you for the offer. You've been ahead of the nice curve the whole time. I looked back, and not once was there a picture of mounting hardware anywhere. The website clearly states no support. I should have believed them. Anyway, I've given the loop, and the schematic you so kindly provided...

Re: New Solid State FX loop source - $20

I don't have time for this. No hardware, no drilling diagram, no wiring diagram. Does anybody want to buy a fine loop with no documentation, and no mounting hardware for $25 bucks and the same kind of stick in an envelope and wrap it with tape free shipping they gave me? I'm losing money on this one...

Re: New Solid State FX loop source - $20

My situation, exactly.
I've got some Cliff jacks I can steal the hardware from, but I would have paid them the extra buck for the parts.
How are they mounted in the Jet City amp?

Quick delivery, I will admit.

Re: #183 5th Generation ODS Skyliner. Layout/Schematic

I believe, the .01 caps across the diodes are to help prevent switching noise from 1N4007-ish diodes. They are ceramic, 1000v, and unnecessary ( overkill? ) with "modern" ultra-fast UF4007 diodes. I think there is a discussion at el34world.com.
