    Western Electric considering adding more tubes to their current USA production

    I dont know how to make tubes either. Western Electric has said that some of the manufacturing prosesses wil use Robotics, Computers, and Lasers. They didnt have those processes decades ago, and I also agree this should make the tubes more consistent, with less rejects. It also may keep costs...

    What pedal to get?

    88-91 Marshall The Guv'nor. If Marrshall are going to make an exact copy of that pedal, effects Loop included, get a new one. Also forget battery access. The Guv'nor has the worst battery access ever. I use mine with e LTD ED Matropoulos JTM45 clone/Head Version. Non Tremolo. I use my pedal...

    Western Electric considering adding more tubes to their current USA production

    With a process that’s over a century old, have there been any significant advances that have made tube manufacturing easier? “Our line operators are working safer and smarter than ever before. There’s a long list of things we’ve been able to modernise across our current 300B operation. Robotics...

    Western Electric considering adding more tubes to their current USA production

    Western Electric announced today they will manufacture tubes in the USA. Ill be first in line. If theyre as good as NOS, they may very well replace NOS, and at a cheaper price. Theyve also said they dont plan on jacking up the price, but did state they will be more expensive than current...

    Amps we dont talk about in public.

    1970 320w Sunn Coliseum Lead with 8 JBL D120s speakers. I got it in 1974. Talk about heavy?? And loud. I only use it at home because its to heavy to move. Best solid State amp ever built in my opinion. Clapton, Jeff Beck, Santana, John Mclaughlin, and a few more have all used this amp. Clapton...

    Western Electric considering adding more tubes to their current USA production

    Those 300B have always been expensive. They also rate those 300B for 40,000 hours, or 5 years warranty. Whichever comes first. I use NOS Mullard 10M Master Series Gold Pins in my 2013 LTD ED Metropoulos JTM45 clone/Head, and when they were new they had a 2 years, or 10,000 hour Warranty from...

    Brown Box....Bias Concern

    I use a Furman SRR 20i to regulate the voltage at 120v, and then I use a BrownBox to lower the voltage to 110v-112v. SPR 20i regulates the voltage to +-1% variation. Its expensive though. My wall voltage is regularly 127-129v, and I was burning up 50s coated glass NOS Maroni Osram KT66s. 8 of...

    Best string gauge for a les paul in your opinion when in standard tuning?

    10-38 on both Les Paul, and Strat. Good enough for Duane Allman, and Hendrix. I particularly like the .015 third sting

    What is THE Marshall?

    JTM45/100 #7026 was Hendrix favorite amplifier, and he used all the various Marshalls up until 1970. He retired #7026 from touring in 68 because he didnt want it to get damaged, or stolen. His USA touring amps were also fitted with 6550s, and other mods. West Coast Organ and Amps did the mods...

    On the inside cover of Electric Ladyland Album, it shows Jimi playing both Drums, and Keyboards. Jimi also gets credit for playing Harpsichord, Violin, and Soprano Flute on Electric Ladyland. At the end of If 6 was 9, thats Jimi playing flute. Some speculate it may have been a Soprano Recorder...
