    Should I Repair It, Or Sell It?

    The Two-Notes Torpedo Wall of Sound software is a free download for use in a DAW. They make their money selling you cab IR's to use with it. Many are low cost. I bought a few different IR's from them. What I use the most is Michael Nielsen's Big Hairy Cab set which I bought on sale for $39. I...

    Should I Repair It, Or Sell It?

    Yeah, I get it. It's a lot of amp and not one you can get the most of in living situations where you need to keep your volume low. I have the same issue with a bunch of my amps but something has changed for me in the last year so I'm really glad I didn't sell them off. I'm doing a lot of...

    Should I Repair It, Or Sell It?

    My son was looking for a decent tube amp so I looked on Craigslist and spotted a YGL3 close by for $375 and told him about it. I told him what to look for in the amp and he went to go check it out. The seller had a tech do work on it about 2 years earlier and showed him the receipt. The tech...

    I recapped my ‘67 Bassman

    Yup, that sounds pretty damn sweet. I just recapped mine and installed a variable bias last week. I have a Bassman 70, one of the dreaded ultra linear models. They have a balance control on them so if your tubes don't match you can fix that. I found an easy mod for even that model on Rob...

    Finally got around to doing some work on my Bassman

    True because I planned to fix it and flip it. I'm not good at the flipping part. :lol:

    Finally got around to doing some work on my Bassman

    Interesting. You gave me something else to worry about. I was crossing my fingers when I started using it for voltage reasons alone. I really can't open it up to do my recording, I need to work somewhat silently so attenuation is a must. I'm trying not to dump another $250 - $300 on a 4 ohm...

    Finally got around to doing some work on my Bassman

    Sorry for the delay. It's been tough getting this video & recording done. I'm absolutely swamped at work and have a million honey do projects going at home but I finally got a chance to throw together a video for this necessary mod project. It's nice to be able to play it without worrying about...

    Finally got around to doing some work on my Bassman

    LOL! Ain't that something? You really have to be careful not to burn the insulation off of wires while you're soldering something in this mess.

    Finally got around to doing some work on my Bassman

    Here's a little background info. I got a free non-working Bassman 70 a couple of years ago. Someone replaced the power & standby switches and screwed it up then harvested the power tubes and left it in pieces. I fixed it and replaced the tubes early this year and tried it in a little recording...

    Show your stash, OR "the great tube panic relief thread"

    It's Over Baby!

    I placed a parts order yesterday and included some stuff I can use to build some bias probe style test leads with so I can use a couple of DMM's to make monitoring it's vitals easier while adjusting the bias. Thanks for the kind words brother. :cheers:

    It's Over Baby!

    I agree. There was a moment when I included it in my mental list of things I want to sell this year but that's not happening. It's too valuable a tool to have available for situations like I just described.

    It's Over Baby!

    The lead parts from half way on are the T15 pushed with a Soul Food OD. :lol:

    It's Over Baby!

    I agree, they definitely do have that pace.

    It's Over Baby!

    I totally get you brah. :cheers: Here's the weird part about that one, I started with my Bassman and got about halfway in when I started smelling something getting hot and had to shut it down. It was my attenuator, LOL! That amp is a little too much for it when I push it hard with a boost. I...
