    Valvestate 8080 repair and refurbish?

    Adding to what Jon already mentioned, the 12AX7/ECC83 is only used on one of the channels, so if your problems manifest themselves on both channels - that's not the issue at hand. The 8080 definitely has a distinct difference in volume between the channels, too - this is by design. What do you...

    Makes you wonder, doesn't it. I mean, maybe some are vegetarians not because they love animals, but because they f*cking hate plants? :shrug:

    I been around teh interwebz... just rule #34 is enough to make you wonder what 10.0 means and quickly run screaming from that mental image... :rofl:

    That scored a 9.0 on my weird-shit-o-meter.

    Your Marshall wish list

    A 95% off coupon for an amp of choice? :) I think an "original" 2203 or 2204 from when they came out would be awesome. Effectively, my SC covers *most* of that terrain for me, though. It would have to be a JTM45 re-issue or an SV, and leaning more toward the JTM...

    Electric guitar microphones

    At the risk of hijacking the thread, what would you guys rate the "minimum decent mic set" for drums? Studio situation, no overspill from other instruments, etc. I was recently looking around for a set for my drummer. There are some Behringer sets for under 150 that... you just know it's...

    Meat Eating Men

    Some Pit bulls _can_ be dodgy. I know dogs pretty well, and I've seen a real pit bull snap. One moment, normal dog - the next; killing machine that will not let go. For no apparent reason. I attribute that to over breeding - and maybe the poor animal had a brain hemorrhage or something, I don't...

    Electric guitar microphones

    Yup, another vote for the SM57, here. Used SM58's, too (same cartridge inside), but I think the grill on the 58 somehow muffles it a tiny bit. Could be between my ears though.

    sc20h power

    No prob! Yes, effectively, every new socket you encounter *might* be wired the other way around. I don't know much about Argentinian electrics, but mixups are common in most parts of the world. Of course, a simple way to check is to plug the power cable in the socket and check which wire is...

    sc20h power

    Well, in GENERAL, you want the fuse on the live wire, not the neutral. So that's an argument against swapping them around. The problem is, however, that in most parts of the world, where plugs fit in a socket in two ways (rotated 180 degrees), there's no telling which would be the live and...

    sc20h power

    Well, @Tatzmann provided a link to the schematic for the SV20 (which has practically the same power section as the SC20). So Red and Brown are a pair, so are Blue and White. Mixing the wires in a pair is not really a big deal, honestly. As I stated earlier, if they had mixed up something...

    Meat Eating Men

    Holy cow [no pun or offense intended, it's really a phrase I use a lot]! I had a vague notion of some of this stuff, but... yeah. This is worse than I expected. Another reason why don't support such organisations, but rather help the local animal shelter (who really do a decent job).

    Meat Eating Men

    Funny, that. I've found there's a "curve" in life with regard to the acceptability of such remarks. If you're young (teenager, early 20's) you can get away with them because ... you're young. When you're (for example) 78, you can get away with it, because people tend not to take that stuff...

    sc20h power

    Uhhm, that's a bit confusing. Do your High and Low power modes work normally? It's probably what I suggested earlier - just swapped AC polarity, in which case there's nothing real to worry?

    The Seventy/80 is Celestion’s best speaker

    I'm in Europe, but my offer stands... :yesway: It probably isn't worth it, shipping-wise, though - your call....

    Recapping a 1997 2203

    A 1982? Not worth it. You're going to need to recalibrate the equilibrium bias in the flux capacitors and then carefully reset the gyroscope near the fuel rods. ....eh wait, what kind of tech says it isn't worth it? Seriously, what the hell is wrong with these people. If you consider replacing...

    The Seventy/80 is Celestion’s best speaker

    Yup, just think about it; crappy amp with good speakers sounds "OK", good amp with crappy speakers sounds crap. I can't say I agree with your choice (yup, digging the Creamback in my DSL combo), but if you ever want another 70/80 - you pay the shipping, it's yours. :p

    Same reason their activists may start bothering other ladies shopping for leather shoes, handbags and so on... but tend to leave leather clad biker gangs alone ;)

    Fun fact; statistically the British eat more "Sauerkraut" per capita than the Germans. :uk:

    Meat Eating Men

    I'm not very fond of aubergine or courgette, ever since childhood. Likewise I've always been crazy about sprouts, beans and cauliflower!
