    NAD: First new Marshall in 6 years....Original 1987 Silver Jubilee!

    I would check the filter caps and make sure they're good. If the amp has set for over 5 years I would just go ahead and replace them.

    SIR #34 and #36 Frank Levi Mods in one Amp

    You're welcome. Sorry, I don't mod amps, just my own.

    SIR #34 and #36 Frank Levi Mods in one Amp

    This appears to have a safe shield and not the hot-shield. The hot-shield plays a part in the sound of this mod. The safe shield has a similar sound, but is slightly different. It will work for those who are uncomfortable with a hot-shield. The plate is bypassed with a 500p, but 470p works. The...

    It's close, but not accurate.

    SIR #34 and #36 Frank Levi Mods in one Amp

    I think you're in a unique situation with your amp having the ability to switch between the modes the way you can. If you want the #36 sound, use the option that sounds best to you, like your #34 and #36 together. If that's what think gets you there the best. Then you have the other options to...

    SIR #34 and #36 Frank Levi Mods in one Amp

    True, Lynch had a lot of amps modded by various people. There's a good story somewhere about when he found out that the #39 he loved and toured with was modded by Levi. I don't recall where it is now, but it's out there. You just need to do a search to find it. Frank was very forth coming about...

    SIR #34 and #36 Frank Levi Mods in one Amp

    Your sample with both #34 and #36 on has the #36 sound the best to my ears, and it sounds pretty darn good. Congrats!

    SIR #34 and #36 Frank Levi Mods in one Amp

    George Lynch's #39 was done by Frank Levi. This is from George's main amp:

    Slash AFD100 boutique amp (#34 and #36/39 in one amp)

    I couldn't make it out too good, and thought it was odd, but went with it anyway. Yeah, that's not going to make any difference, and is probably within the tolerance of the 500p cap anyway.

    Slash AFD100 boutique amp (#34 and #36/39 in one amp)

    I see a couple of differences there from the #34 schem and your schem's #34 mode. But it's possible that these changes are for the favor of your #36 mod. They are not big differences, but will change the sound a little. You have the plate resistor bypassed with a 410p cap (I'm assuming your cap...

    Slash AFD100 boutique amp (#34 and #36/39 in one amp)

    If your trying to get the tubes to put you on the path for the #34 and #36 sound, Slash used 6550's in both amps. So stick with those tubes. One key component that was missing from the AFD100, that was in both #34 and #36, is the hot-shield. This is a key part in getting those mods to sound...

    Western Electric considering adding more tubes to their current USA production

    I think W.E. knows they can't come out with common 12AX7 tubes and charge outrageous prices. They know they have to be competitive price-wise to a certain extent, or it would be a worthless advention. That's how I read it. As far as to why their their 300B prices are so high, this comment...

    Is Old Music Killing New Music?

    They definitely have that gritty, old school, rock sound that is missing with most bands today. Monster Truck and Hillbilly Herald are two more bands with the same vibe and similar sound.

    Is Old Music Killing New Music?

    Part 2 Let's do a comparison. Record a signal, only concentrating on 5-40 hz. So, recording 5-40 hz, now, let's duplicate the tape. Let's duplicate it 10 x's. 20 x's, 30 x's, how about 40? What will the tape 40 generations later sound like? First of all, it wouldn't matter because you would...

    Is Old Music Killing New Music?

    First of all, let me say this. I'm not going to get into a debate about which sounds better, analog v. digital, because that really depends on the ears interpreting it, and everybody has their own desires of what they like to hear with sound. I'll make references to sound, because it's the...

    Is Old Music Killing New Music?

    You make a great point here and I would like to add. I think the drop in quality of music over time is directly related to how kids grow up today. Back in 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's, kids didn't have computers, video games (yes, they came out in the late 70's, but they were not like they are today)...

    Is Old Music Killing New Music?

    Analog equipment had it's limitations? I think you got that backwards. Digital has limitations, such as bit depth, sample rate, dither, just to name a few. Analog has none of these limitations. The downfall for analog is that it takes more work to edit, or 'fix' a recording, something digital...
