Re: HRM VS Non HRM

No the pot isn't bad.I could play out with it set at 2ish and just gets louder as you go up through the dial.At noon on the dial I believe it would be considered a lethal weapon,it's that loud.It isn't an issue of all the volume being full on instantly on the dial.This is what I'm trying to understa...

Re: HRM VS Non HRM

Jim,My HRM is exactly as you describe yours.Blistering loud at 2.
I am ok with that,I'm just trying to understand the why compared to the
102 version.Again before I HRM'd the 183 it was about the same as my 102 in overall volume in OD.I also think both amps sound great.
Thanks
Steve

Re: HRM VS Non HRM

Briane,thanks for the reply.I have adjusted the trimmer on the od entrance to the amount of gain I like but will look at it again.I have both amps set about the same in that respect.
Thanks again

HRM VS Non HRM

I built a 102 and 183 quite awhile ago.I prefered the 102 to the 183 so I decided to HRM the 183 about 6 months ago.The 183 has the dual master,skyliner eq and pi. I always thought that both amps were rather tame volume wise for 100 watters.However since I coverted the 183 to an HRM circiut the OD c...

Re: HRM issue

Blindog,
Thanks for the suggestions.I ended up just rewiring and adding a replacement HRM board.I couldn't nail down why/reason I was loosing
Cathode voltage.
Thanks

HRM issue

Months ago I converted my 183 to an HRM.Sounds great.Last night I fired it up and got a intermitent sound out of the OD side.OK,So I swapped out a preamp tube first..no luck.So I opened it up and started checking solderer joints,voltages ect.On the V2 tube I have 205v pin 6,1.6v on pin 8 the other s...

Re: 102 and 183 builds

Taylor No D-lator yet.It is something I will build at some point.What speakers are you using with your amp?Speakers and tubes make such a difference. With my 102 I am running into 2 heritage 65's closed back cab.V1 has a Tele smoothplate,V2 GE shortplate and V3 is another Tele smooth plate.The darkn...

Re: 102 and 183 builds

Steve Can you comment on why you didn't use the 250k Drive and Level in your 183?..(Since this is a big part of the 183 sound!!) PS..Along with the things Mike mentioned also are 2.2uf Presence cap 40uf on V1 and V2 Multi-tap Power transformer (larger Iron) FWB rectifier (makes a difference) Differ...

Re: 102 and 183 builds

Nice builds Steve. Do you find the OD on 102 to be smoother with more sustain than #183? Which amp has the better cleans, IYO? My 183 would be a touch smoother/darker than my 102 and i think because of that my 102 for me has a brighter clean tone which i prefer.This again would be when I had 183 tr...

Re: 102 and 183 builds

Thanks I am happy with the clean sound a little dark though to be honest thru either amp,if thats what your referring too.I ordered this guitar from Fenders custom sho...

Re: 102 and 183 builds

102 This amp is my favorite of the two.Will sing or scream depending on what you want. No LNFB on V1 68pf on master 47uf on B4 and B5 I believe everything else is per layout except wiring.I hate running wires from underneath the boards so I did this one a little different.Also I did not use coax on ...

Re: 102 and 183 builds

183 This amp has gone thru many changes since I built it.The pic shows the original config.After I built 102 I chased what made that amp sound so good in this amp.Changes I made that I am happy with in this amp. 100k level and ratio TAD 6L6 tubes 470/5k1 Toggle on master to switch between 25pf and 6...
