Re: Fender AC power cord

Hello Colossal

I seem to recall you are a Mercury Mag kind of guy. Have you checked out the power cords they are offering?

Bitten by the UP/Hotel Hog bug need Antidote

I have been bitten by the UP/Hotel Hog bug and I am looking for the antidote. A few months ago Jelle posted his Hotel Hog layout. I had a 100 watt head that I built as the reverb channel (less tremelo) of a Twin Reverb (basic AB763 clone). I decided to implement all the changes that were on Hotel Ho...

Re: Orange/MatAmp OR120 output transformer info needed

Orange/MatAmp OR120 output transformer info needed

A good friend of mine recently purchased a 1970-72 OR120. It arrived DOA and I am helping him sort it out. I cant believe what was done to the amp over it's lifespan. I have rewired/changed/ fixed every shoddy/kluged up mess and have it working. I cant believe how loud the amp is. There is one remai...

Re: Bit of current Eric Clapton/Dumble inside info

The tweed Super/Pro/BandMaster do not have a choke input filter. It has a capacitor input filter in a Pi configuration. The choke is a 200ma choke. I don't recall the DC resistance. If you use a standard Fender 90ma 6L6 choke between the plate and screens you will not have the power supply regulatio...

Re: Triodestore or TriodeElectronics

My experience with Amp Parts Direct has been very good. Usually get a shipping notice within 24hrs of order and the parts show up within 2 days. On three occasions I didn't receive a shipping notice or any other email for a couple of days. So I called them. A part was out of stock each time that hap...

Re: AB763 KT88 Question

Thanks Mark I had just finished reading the remarks about Triode in another area of the forum when I found your post. There was a real great guy that worked for them a few years ago. He really gave me great service but when he left they jacked me around big time on a large order and I have never bee...

AB763 KT88 Question

Thanks for all the replies. Well the speaker is an EV. Also have a couple other 101+db speakers by eminence. So looking around at possible xfmr choices I favor the a431s OT and the p782s PT Dynaco iron offered by Triode Electronics After you figure in the cost of tubes and the xfmrs and power supply...

Is it Black Face or Tweed?

Seems I recall seeing a pair of Low Power Tweed Twins behind EC for a number of years. The last versions of the tweed Super/Pro/Bandmaster/LPTwin share the same CF tone stack, PI and output section(different OTs). Preamp was different in Low Power Twin. Super/Pro/Bandmaster all the same circuit with...

AB763 KT88 Question

I have a head that is basically a AB763 reverb only - 12AT7 PI - 2X6L6 OT is Classic Tone BFBassman 50watt 4K - PT is 200ma 320-0-320 with solid state rectifier. Heater spec is 5A so no problem with 2x12AXY 2x21AT7 and 2xKT66/6550 I am looking for the shortest path to a little more power/SPL - clean...

Re: High power Tweedle Dee.

I have built/converted many Tweed Deluxes to big bottle amps. Tried all the OTs Mentioned (except MM) above and settled on the Tweed Pro/Super/Bandmaster 6k iron. 6L6,5881 and KT66 all sound amazing cathode biased. Fixed bias produces a little more power but some of the creamy quality disappears. I ...

When I pushed the submit button on my last post I thought I should have added where is martin manning when we need him?

Re: A mod/trix I never seen before

When I think of feed back I understand that to be from an output to an input. This clearly bridges two outputs. I don't see how that constitutes feedback. It seems like it would create something like mixing/balancing/co-mingling of the two AC components. Would these signals be out of phase? I think ...
